Sentence of the week

How can we summarize the stunning plot that catapulted the Kenyan Muslim usurper past America's drooping eyelids in 2008, Fair 'n' Balanced Network?

"The most amazing part about this voter fraud case involving the highest office in the United States is the fact that such a few number of people, because of laziness, arrogance or both did not do their job and thus could have affected the outcome of the election," noted St. Joseph County Republican Party Charwoman Dr. Deborah Fleming.

The quote isn't "ungrammatical" in any important way, but it's ... discourteous. Not just calling her a charwoman,* but asking her for a comment and then placing quotes around whatever sort of word gazpacho she barfed up. It's simply good journalistic manners to give her another chance to produce something coherent, whether she's speaking for the home team or not.

 The innocent reader might, at this point, be a little baffled: What's this scandal all about, and why am I hearing about it in lieu of BENGHAZI!!!!!!!!!!? Well, in short, a few people got together and decided to take some shortcuts in getting names on the Democratic primary ballot in Indiana in 2008. The perps have been sentenced; hence, a 1,200-word story in the No. 3 spot on the homepage. What's it doing there? See if you can pick up a clue from the lede:

As Hillary Clinton prepares for a possible presidential run in 2016, it appears that she could have knocked then-candidate Barack Obama off the 2008 primary ballot in Indiana.

Well, that's a relief. If Hillary's in the lede, it's still a BENGHAZI!!!!!!! story. And Fox, to its credit, is no longer openly lying about the potential outcome of the case.

If anyone, including her campaign, had challenged the names and signatures on the presidential petitions that put Obama on the ballot, election fraud would have been detected during the race.

But at the time, no one did.

On Monday, there was some closure to the case, though, as the four defendants who were convicted or pleaded guilty in the state's presidential petition fraud scandal were sentenced. Only one received prison time for the illegal scheme that touched the race for the White House.

Why there's "closure" in June, as opposed to when the verdicts arrived in April, suggests a little more about why the story's here. And, perhaps, why the writer tries to bend this quote into something it doesn't do:
So many names were forged -- an estimated 200 or more -- that prosecutor Stanley Levco said that had the fraud been caught during the primary, "the worst that would have happened, is maybe Barack Obama wouldn't have been on the ballot for the primary."

"I think that Obama would still have been elected president, no matter what," he said.

Help me out here, linguist friends: are "so many names" and "the worst that would have happened" going in opposite directions? The first one wants to be unlimited, and the second one says the limits are pretty irrelevant?

Now, 1,200 words seems like kind of a lot for a second-day (or third-month) story whose point is that, absent some typical Maoist fraud, Clinton might have won a primary that she won anyway. That rather overstates the amount of work the writer put in. Here's what he wrote in April:

Numerous voters told Fox News that they never signed the petitions.

"That's not my signature," Charity Rorie, a mother of four, told us when we showed her the Obama petition with her name and signature. She was stunned, saying that it "absolutely" was a fake.

Charity told Fox News that her husband's entry was also a forgery, and that they have never been contacted by investigators or any authorities looking into the scandal.

"It's scary, it's shocking. It definitely is illegal," she told us.

And today?

Numerous voters told Fox News that they never signed them.

"That's not my signature," Charity Rorie, a mother of four, told Fox News when showed the Obama petition with her name and signature on it. She was stunned, saying that it "absolutely" was a fake, as well as the name and signature of her husband, Jeff.

"It's scary, it's shocking. It definitely is illegal," she told us.

What about the other "numerous voters"? Here's April:

Robert Hunter, Jr. told Fox news that his name was faked, too.

"I did not sign for Barack Obama," he told us. As he examined the Obama petition in his hands, Hunter pointed out that "I always put 'Junior' after my name, every time...there's no 'Junior' there

Even a former Democratic Governor of Indiana, Joe Kernan, told Fox News that his name was forged.

And June:

Robert Hunter, Jr. told Fox News that his name was faked, too.

"I did not sign for Barack Obama," he said, as he looked at the petition listing his name and signature.

Even a former Democratic governor of Indiana, Joe Kernan, told Fox News that his name was forged.

If you're really wondering what the story is doing at the top of the Fox front, you could always try looking at the reader comments:

This is only the tip of the iceberg -- they'll just get better at hiding, lying, deflecting, you know the ones that are running in 2014 are scared.

This administration is RIFE with FRAUD!! And Fox News is accepting more and more sexist and sexual content ads to try and distract us from the real news!! Lets get real!! Our country is falling apart, our government is trampling our constitutional rights, our rogue prezident is trying to create a Kenyon style Banana Republic of which he is king, and our news agencies are throwing us crumbs of news with partial truth! We want REAL NEWS and the truth! (Thank you Snowden for daring to step out and speak up - we are a nation under attack by its own government!!)

And Obama is the guilty one!! This is Chicago / Tammany Hall politics. Why should honest people believe in this govt anymore?

That area in Indiana across the state line from Chicago has been a traditionally corrupt and graft ridden area ever since time began and it's all DEMOCRAT.

lol.... prior to obamas first election... he travel to Egypt, actually he was summoned to Egypt...   They found something.. I can not tell you what they found.. I can but, you need to see for yourself do a little digging on your own.. When he returned to the US.. he met with Hillary and she withdrew... Morrsi, is obamas BFF.. Egypy / Libya.. gets everything they want. Egypt, holds all the answers. ps: obama was appointed the second term votes played no role in that election.. I actually have a screen grab of a ticker on the peoples court TV show, showing he one the election with 99% of the precincts reporting .. This aired in October.. pretty neat trick..

The God-King was the shoe-in anyway. Hillary was only there for show. In fact, the Obama campaign secretly made death threats against Chelsea unless Hillary dropped out of the race.

Is everyone feeling the "love" from the Obama zombies?  A completely unprepared, disingenuous liar whose prominence was illegally contrived.  Jammed down the collective throats of America by a few misguided criminals.

Indiana is merely the tip of the iceberg.  So, when reflecting upon whether or not to listen to Barry, let alone follow his directions, keep in mind that he is nothing but a suit dummy, placed upon us in a painful charade.

Marxist Obama’s goal is destroy our Constitution; institute “Big Brother”; and ultimately form a one world government so the anti-Christ can make his appearance on the world scene. The anti-Christ is secretly causing all the problems in the world including Islamic terrorism. And since he is causing the problems, he can “magically” make them all go away, thereby deceiving the nations.

how did obama get elected his buddies the black panthers threating people, voter fraud in hossier country, and illegal aliens a man of class a great role model we have had a criminal as our president for 5 years now impeach now no wonder we are the laughing stock in the world but then adain all muslims are crooked.

It's really the end of America. Laws do not matter. The Supreme Court is corrupt, The wealthy buy their own rules from the US congress. School kids are being indoctrinated into socialism. If you have some money stashed away, get out of the country while you can. Once people feel the frustration of corruption then flames and bullets take the place of voting booths

Enjoy, kids!

* Spellcheck won't save you, earthlings.
