So here we have a story where Obama is winning but really losing, matched by a story where Clinton is winning but really losing. Message: Democrats are losers. The entire campaign is colored with this theme: it's not about how Democrats have two talented and resilient candidates, it's that they both suck, the party is weak and about to explode. Never mind the facts.It's not sarcasm when I ask whether 99.9% of those involved in masticating these events ever mentally left the school yard where they regurgitated their parents' words as their own absolutism.
It is now sarcasm when I state that the US needs, absolutely crying requires, an adult and responsible and honest press. It is not sarcasm when I say that what we have is quite close to the polar opposite of what any democracy would need.
I emphasize the lack of sarcasm in these statements because I am often being sarcastic or at least facetious. The lack of a responsibly adult press is more damaging to our country than anything terrorists can throw at us.
Has the US really such a need to just feel protected (as it's clear that the protection is a fantasy) that they willingly turn over their country to a juvenile president with delusions of competence and accept their news massaged by entertainers masquerading as journalists, analysts and commentators? I don't know why I present this as a question as it has already happened.
