Is there anything the McCain campaign is not lying to the American people about?
Tomorrow on Locus Focus we'll discuss whether the slogan "Is there anything the McCain campaign isn't lying to the American people about?" will dominate the rest of the presidential campaign. We'll analyze the lies, distortions and exaggerations that are marking the McCain campaign, from his campaign ads to inflated attendance numbers at Palin/McCain rallies. And, oh yes, his flip flop on how sound the economy is.
Kevin Phillips speaks on Swimming with the Sharks: The U.S. Economy. (lecture) Kevin Phillips was chief political analyst for the 1968 Republican presidential campaign, which culminated in the victory of Richard Nixon. Phillips also was partly responsible for the design of the Republican "Southern strategy," which transformed the once Democratic South into a Republican stronghold. In 1969 he wrote "The Emerging Republican Majority." His politics have evolved over the ensuing decades. He is the author of many books including "American Theocracy" and "Bad Money."
Hosted by Clayton Morgareidge, this program features the life and music of Victor Jara, the legendary singer-songwriter who helped elect the democratic-socialist President of Chile Salvador Allende, and was murdered by the Pinochet coup supported by the US in 1973. His music lives on, as we hear today. Also on the show, Bill Resnick talks with Paul Joseph about the possibility that Americans are becoming more peaceful -- or at least less patient with war, and how that might lead to a more potent peace movement. The Well-read Red, Frann Michel, takes on Sarah Palin, and Clayton Morgareidge analyzes the political rhetoric of the two major parties. To hear the whole show, hit the arrow above.

Power versus Compassion in Presidential Campaign Rhetoric
If the Presidential campaign were a football game, it’s beginning to look like the Republicans have the ball and the Democrats are playing defense. The Republicans attack, and the Democrats answer. The aggressor controls the game, which makes the Democrats look like losers. Why does this happen? I don’t think it’s just because Republicans are meaner than the Democrats.
At the rhetorical level, there is quite a difference between the Democrats and the Republicans. Clayton Morgareidge tries to describe that difference and what it says about the nation's political psychology. You can read this piece here.
