I was looking around for something new and interesting to tell you about this morning and reading the news was like deja vu all over again.
Back east another big storm is on it’s way or just hit. Sean Hannity says it’s proof that global warming is a hoax. Actual scientists who don’t work for the oil companies say that the extreme weather patterns in recent years are caused by global warming.
Glenn Beck called Obama a socialist. Somebody on the left made a sexist statement about Sarah Palin. Some feminist defended them. Somebody else on the left claimed that the lack of civility in politics is due to the fact that Tea Partiers are bat shit insane fascists. The Tea Partiers reply, “Yeah, but we have guns and we know where you live!”
People are protesting in the streets of some other country. A bomb blew up somewhere and killed a bunch of people. Somebody high up in the administration said nice things about a brutal dictator. Kim Jong il is still crazy.
Lindsay Lohan is returning to rehab. Charlie Sheen is screwing hookers and porn stars. Thanks to the paparazzi, some female celebrity had pictures of her lady-parts published on the internet. Jen still misses Brad, Tom is secretly gay and Michael isn’t really dead.
The rich keep getting richer. The rest of us keep getting poorer. Someone you know just had his/her job outsourced to another country. Someone in your community got arrested for welfare fraud. Nobody got arrested for mortgage fraud.
There is your news for today. And tomorrow. And the day after.
