Catching Up on Rolling Stone's Great Election Coverage

High praise is due to Rolling Stone magazine for their insistent and excellent coverage of this election. Those of us who don't manage to get our hands on a copy of the print version can catch up online on RS's terrific website, and there are several recent do-not-miss articles that must be read, immediately:

Matt Taibbi's scathing expose on Sarah Palin, a savagely brilliant piece of writing full of amazing ideas like this one: "...most Americans no longer have the energy to do anything but lie back and allow ourselves to be jacked off by the calculating thieves who run this grasping consumer paradise we call a nation." The article is called "Mad Dog Palin -- The scariest thing about John McCain's running-mate isn't how unqualified she is-- it's what her candidacy says about America." Read it!

Tim Dickinson's "Make-Believe Maverick -- A closer look at the life and career of John McCain reveals a disturbing record of recklessness and dishonesty." OMG...read this, now.

"The Double-Talk Express -- from tax cuts to torture, John McCain has flip-flopped on a host of issues -- including his own immigration bill."

"The Truth About Sarah Palin -- Sarah Palin's credentials as a 'reformer' are nothing but spin."

These are many more articles are available online, including from their Campaign 2008 page.

Go! Read! Understand! Get Mad! Volunteer!!!
