47. National ADD and Bizarro World

We hear days and days of wall to wall coverage of the most inane things, high ranking republicans amazingly labeling Obama a marxist/socialist, Mr. West emulating Joe McCarthy. Bill-O making ridiculous comments about Robert Reich. More than a few righties have labeled those on the left as fascist, so now apparently left is right on top of up is down.

The MSM asks almost no hard questions anymore, it's 99.9% softball after softball. The MSM really fell down on the job during the lead up to Bush's idiotic lie based invasion of Iraq, the pom poms were out, no hard questions asked. Now we hear outrage about the GSA's spending spree.....which is justified but a drop in the bucket compared to the money missing and wasted in Iraq, and that tab will keep growing as we go on.

I just re-watched Eisenhower's ultra prescient warning, as he was leaving office, about guarding against letting the military-industrial complex gain undue influence. You can bet Ike, a republican, is spinning in his grave about how that turned out. I then watched "inside Job" and it's incredible that no Wall Street big shots are spending time in the Big House, and more incredible that many of them instead walked off with bonuses in the hundreds of millions for committing massive fraud and bringing our economy down.

Washington, our mainstream media, our whole system is fubar at the moment.
