Here's One...

from the "No Shit" files.


This is, unfortunately, a perfect example of the disconnect that exists in today's society. Anybody who was paying attention knew these things last year. But there were too many people who were, in my opinion, under-informed. But that is the MO of today's conservative party. Keep the people in the dark whenever possible. What's that? You want to know about the judicial philosophy of the Supreme Court nominee? Sorry, out of luck. Remember the stonewalling of the 9/11 commission? What about their Social Security plan that never materialized? The list could go on and on.

In an ideal America with a proper press, the public would be well informed. But our lapdog press was too scared to question the big bad war president for fear of being shut out of the inner circle. Thus we have an uninformed electorate and a second term for Georgieboy. But now that Bush's poll numbers have started to take a dive in the wake of Katrina, the impending fallout from Plame-gate, and the ongoing Iraqmire, the press has rediscovered their backbone. Too little, too late in my book. Had they stepped up to the plate earlier when there was an election on the line, maybe we would be in an entirely different situation right now.

Thanks media. Thanks for nothing!
