Left-wing media, like right-wing media, are in general shills for the regime. Take Salon.com, which is worried--like the RNC and Romney--about what it calls "The Ron Paul convention takeover plot." Oooh, scary. Will Ron "steal" the nomination or just "wreak havoc" in Tampa? Why, some of the Paul peons might even "relentlessly heckle" their betters rather than knuckle their forelocks. Can't have that. It might give other plebs ideas above their station. Keep the scam going, with the usual corporatist Democrat versus the usual corporatist Republican. That way the oligarchs can't lose.
