That is what we’ve become. And it ain’t a good thing, people. It’s not a good thing when the New York Times, the supposed “newspaper of record” finds space to publish an article on the prostitute that Elliot Spitzer allegedly hired, including her pictures from her MySpace page. And I’m gonna tell you why this is not a good thing. I’ll bet I could easily get detailed opinions from people on whether or not Silda Spitzer should have stood next to her husband, an unbelieveably idiotic subject, yet if queried, the same people wouldn’t know jack about anything of actual importance that went on this week. Y’know, stuff like the house of reps passing a FISA bill without retroactive immunity for the telecoms, the outrageous executive order Bush issued, weaking the Intelligence Oversight Board, the misuse of Security Letters on ordinary U.S. citizens by the FBI, the fact that the “surge” is an utter fucking failure in it’s actual intent. Stuff that actually affects our lives in many ways. I realize that many people just don’t want to know about this shit. It’s too depressing, etc. and blah blah blah. Well, what depresses me most, is my fellow citizens giving more attention to the lastest cocksniffing frenzy then they do to the things that really matter. I realize this is a rant. So be it. I could have added at leat 10 more things to the list of devious things this administration is up to just this week. I’m begging y’all to pay at least a little attention to the corruption of the Bush administration, the eroding of our Constitutional rights. Rant over.
First there was this Oh, it’s bad. So very bad. Then the WaPo decided to up the ante by having a “chat” with Ms. Allen. Ugh. Honestly, why give this wretched person anymore space to spew her crap. Then yesterday, Meredith Viera foisted this piece of crap on the world. If you scroll down and launch the video player piece titled, “Why women lie”, you’ll see what I mean. I don’t even want to waste too many words on what shite this is. But wtf is going on here? Misogyny is fine when it’s done by a woman?
