The perenially insightful Noam Chomsky recently wrote a compelling article elucidating facts and myths about our historic election, and what it means for our society. “A Grassroots Army of Millions” ready to take instructions while contributing nothing meaningful to The Program.  Here’s an excerpt:

“In some ways the election followed familiar patterns. The McCain campaign was honest enough to announce clearly that the election wouldn’t be about issues. Sarah Palin’s hairdresser received twice the salary of McCain’s foreign policy adviser, the Financial Times reported, probably an accurate reflection of significance for the campaign. Obama’s message of “hope” and “change” offered a blank slate on which supporters could write their wishes.”
