Last night over dinner, I said to Tom: "The so-called 'liberal' media are morons."
But not for the obvious reasons that may pop to mind.
It seems, I told Tom (and now you, dear reader) that the so-called "right-wing" media are controlling what news gets reported... indeed the right-wing in general is controlling the media at the moment.
This has been festering in my noodle for a while now.
For example, why the eff are we paying attention to that nut-bag Michelle Bachmann, her insanity, and her son? Or Palin, for that matter?
Further, why are they still yakking about the misinformation on health care reform?
Or the attention-seeking folks not-so-subtly threatening the president at his town hall meetings by showing up strapped? Don't our "enemies" in those countries "over thar someswhere" do the same fucking thing?
Seriously, what is the purpose of that other than a child's response: "Cuz I can."
Good on you.
I can talk with food in my mouth, but don't even if I can.
It's bad manners, poor etiquette, and frankly, gross.
Instead, I posit, the national conversation should be about what's needed instead of pointing fingers, like Keith Olbermann does *non-stop* saying: "Nya, nya, nya, I'm right and you're wrong."
I am about finished with the defensive crap that has become the smorgasbord of the "news."
Everyone's a fucking critic and wants a seat at the grown-up table but no one seems to want to put forward solutions.
People are talking with their mouths full of shyte.
What this country needs is civility, not barbarism.
Some keep-your-elbows-off-the-table and chew-with-your-mouth-closed kind of table manners.
We also need the dumb-asses we elected (by a very safe margin) to do their jobs and get the things done we elected them to do.
I fear that a train-wreck is just around the bend. And the media will be sitting there, literally, on their asses saying with their mouths chock full 'o crap, "We told you so."
And I'll say, "Good for you. You were right. Now what the frick are we going to do?"
