EE Speaks Out

Last Sunday, Elizabeth Edwards summed up the frustration of many with the press coverage of this campaign.

And here are the letters on it.

I think one of the letters makes a good point that this is really a conspiracy among the media, lazy consumer of media, spin consultants and candidates themselves.
When I wrote a lengthy post depicting the electorate as hungry for the real truth about issues and urging Obama to stop being careful and really offer the voters some straight talk, a political consultant sent it back to me annotated, explainng that I was naive to suppose that a candidate could really speak his mind and move away from carefully focus-group-tested platitudes.
