If she knew what kind of mood I was in, she never would have agreed.
But with her having popped a couple of unisom (and heading for la la land)
..and seemingly oblivious to my mental machinations...
I thought I would vent my spleen as regards presidential contenders and our 'news' organizations.
We really shouldn't blame them...it's a general word...meaning..
"Information some moron thought important enough to type up and slap into either paper format and/or digital media."
The amount of Money and Time spent on said Americanized "news' is (or should be) criminal.
I sometimes read The Onion...
Its a fictional newspaper that is
Just like John Stewart and the daily show is
In which we find The Curious Case of the Invisible Presidential Contender.
Captain obvious finds this hysterically funny....and obnoxiously sad at the same time.
Captain obvious finds some of Ron's ideas kooky.
But, Captain obvious is so pissed at this obvious media bias right now, and It's tendency to Dumb Down our political discourse...
That captain obvious would be secretly delighted (Now not so secretly) to see the sheer terror and disorientation should the good doctor actually win...
So delighted, that he is contemplating voting for Ron Paul...if only Captain obvious can break free from the hypnotic allure of 'the Republican front runner's" luscious locks, rugged appeal, and pre packaged sound bites.
After this ad, the aliens invade and Rick Perry rolls up his sleeves, grabs his megaphone, and leads the world in defeating the invading horde.
Then there are stories like this one in which we learn that John Boehner, republican house majority leader ...sleeps well and is not angry, though we do discover later on in the 'news' article that he is not having "any fun".
Now that one I thought was an onion article..as it reminded me so much of this http://www.theonion.com/video/obama-begs-us-not-to-embarrass-him-in-front-of-fre,21068/)
Not to leave our (dis) honorable colleagues on the left out of this moron extravaganza....Harry Reed thinks so much of bike trails he thought he would slap it into the transportation bill..
On the same day John's relative health and happiness were being debated here in america,
This was the lead story in Israel...
Wherein we learn Israel has signed a peace treaty with greece and is on the verge of a war with turkey. Considering the muslim brotherhood takeover in Egypt, the palestinian unrest in the west bank...the Iranians who are on the verge of obtaining a nuclear weapon and syria who is outright murdering her people while we chase Qaddafi all over the lybian desert...I think we are on the precipice of another world war...
Not that our news is covering that; CAptain obvious feels that someday, we here in america will wake up and the world will be at war and we will think it's because Jersey Shore And The Kardashians are having a throwdown.
