Description - Great American Hypocrites by Glenn Greenwald

SURGEON GENERAL'S WARNING: Falling for the Marlboro Man marketing and sleazy takedown tactics of the Republican Party can be hazardous to the health of this nation! Ever since the cowboy image of Ronald Reagan was sold to Americans, the Republican Party has used the same John Wayne imagery to support its candidates and take elections. We all know how they govern, but the right-wing propaganda machine is very adept at hijacking debate and marketing their candidates as effectively as the Marlboro Man. For example: Myth: The Republican nominee is an upstanding, regular guy who shares the values of the common man.Reality: He divorced his first wife in order to marry a young multimillionaire heiress whose family then funded his political career. Myth: Republicans are strong on defense and will keep us safe.Reality: They prey on fears, and their endless wars make America far less secure. Myth: Republicans are the party of fiscal restraint and small, limited government.Reality: Soaring deficits, unchecked presidential power, and an increasingly invasive surveillance state are par for their course. "Intelligent, insightful." --Daily Kos "Glenn Greenwald has done it again." --Alan Colmes "Glenn Greenwald is a treasure." --BuzzFlash
