Why do we care again???

I need someone to explain this to me again....

We have this war in Iraq that's costing us billions, a presidential election coming up, a collapsing financial industry, an economy in trouble.

Why do I care again where John Edward's penis goes? So he's a sanctimonious politician that is in denial. Again, who gives a shit? People have been getting laid way before there were Republicans, Democrats and news organizations and it is likely it'll be happening long after they are gone.

I was watching the news the other night when this story broke and the Anchor on ABC could barely contain her excitement.

I just don't care. What kind of revelation am I supposed to come to? Politicians don't care and hump everything and anything? Was the whole country born yesterday? The guy isn't playing any part in our national dialog anyway.

I do have one minor revelation from this; our media is less Republican or Democrat slanted than I had originally thought. In reality, the media is slanted to the most elegant crap they can dredge up and sell to sponsors. Again, the front of the National Inquirer is a great place for Larry Craig or John Edwards.

Maybe we can get back to issues that matter like why my kid's grade school needs a new roof and the local schoolboard is short cash for "capital improvements" (like a new roof).

Please, can we get back to picking a president that isn't a fucking idiot?

You are entirely correct. I never understood why it mattered who was fucking whom. We are perceived by foreigners as a bit wacky and puritanical because of coverage like this.

Unfortunately the government, companies and media have done a great job stigmatizing Americans into thinking North America is the center of the universe and the rest of the planet is irrelevant.

Thus John Edwards and his penis equates to the revelation of the century for our mindless little newshogs. Belly up to the trough boys!!
