Political and Moral sign posts for the walking dead.
1) I tried to reason with my mother but it seemed her entire vocabulary had been reduced to a few trite talking points she had heard from the Bills (O'Reilly and Crystal). I had learned to aim for the head when shooting zombies, and now was no time for mistakes.
2) The make-up man did a remarkable job of hiding the bite wounds on the president, but that odd speech rhytm and blathering talking points were a dead give-away. The camera hid the mangled hand, but you could see the rotting flesh on the live feed.

The one phrase or idea that candidates repeat over and over again in debates and commercials until it people believe it. Especially applicable to the 2004 election and an indication of the downfall of the media.

Quasi-pro political 'blog' website that presents left-center prespective without the shrill narrative of the loonies.

Has a sister website called 'TPMmuckraker' that consistently seems to scoop a lot of the juciest political gossip.
I tried to read Daily Kos, but was totally turned off by how totally out-there all the writers are. Later, I found Talking Points Memo and felt a lot more at ease and realized that I'd finally found a source of information that isn't controlled by the government and isn't run by UFO-chasers. Finally!
