It's been really hard for me to get up the interest in posting anything lately. Who can have any doubt about the sick spectacle that is our electoral process this year; and yet the press insists on ignoring the monster in the room, and pretending that everything is just fine. And that's all they want to talk about.
The Republicans had a "debate" a couple of days ago which was virtually devoid of any real content, and which consisted of nothing but the three top vote getters engaging in an insult competition, in which one of them, with Olympic class skills, was clearly going to emerge victorious, having proven absolutely nothing of note.
The following picture, which I stole from Crooks and Liars, pretty much encapsulates the whole thing to me:
After their depraved performances in the last couple of electoral cycles, I thought the Republicans were going to have to work really hard to sink to an even lower level of depravity, but I was wrong.
And that is all that is, apparently, going on in this country. How often can people repeat it before dying of boredom?
