This lipstick thing might actually put me in the loony bin. I simply cannot believe the constant coverage, the news channels with it running in their tickers ... I mean, seriously, what the fuck is wrong with this country?
I can’t get over the comments by Palin’s pastor in this video, or the McCain ad suggesting that legislation Obama didn’t write and that never became law and that was aimed at protecting children from sexual predators is being advertised as “Obama’s one accomplishment—sex ed for kindergarteners.” Or, I don’t know, our country being in hock to China? A quarter of a million dead Iraqi civilians? Osama bin Laden on the loose? A convention hall full of people chanting “drill baby drill”? The idea that “maverick” is a good character trait for a president, even if the person actually fits the bill? A military stretched too thin to respond to either Russia or Iran? The fact that a sizable percentage of Americans actually WANT a president who is as clueless and inexperienced as they themselves are? There is so much that is truly outrageous going on in the world, and the so-called journalists in this country are letting John McCain set their programming with some bullshit about a shopworn saying McCain uses constantly, and in fact used in reference to Hillary Clinton’s healthcare plan only a few months ago. Can you imagine the McCain team sitting in their headquarters and hotel rooms, yukking it up, pointing and laughing at the jackass news anchors on the TV screens, with their teams of pundits lined up to weigh in on whether or not Obama called Sarah Palin a pig? (Sorry, Joan -- you were great.)
There is more than enough legitimate news and chaos in the world to pack even the 24-hour broadcasts, so what the hell are we talking about?
