The Black Panthers in Philadelphia:The Right's Media is on it
There are initial reports that individuals claiming to be Black Panthers are standing outside Philadelphia polling places (some of whom were brandishing weapons). I heard about this on Rush Limbaugh's radio program and when I checked the Internet, the Fair and Balanced Channel and Drudge had it as its main story.
Are these real Black Panthers? That's for someone else to determine. A couple things I do know:
1) It is being used by the right's media as a GOTV tactic for the McCain campaign.
2) The alleged Black Panthers are helping the right's media with their preemptive narrative that an Obama victory will be illegitimate. That's at least how Rush is playing it--he's telling his listeners that it's an attempt to steal the election in Pennsylvania.
NOTE: I'm heading to Los Angeles for the Crooks and Liars Election Party and my laptop is dead so there will be light posting today.
