Politi-Flix is amazed that there has been so little reporting of the breakdown of democracy in the balkanized and secretive Oscaristan. With all the attention being paid to the election discrepancies in Iran, Pakistan, and Afghanistan, and the stifling of dissent and access to outside media in these countries as well as places like China, it’s to be expected that the scandals in Oscaristan would get lost in the din.
