CNN advertizing the next episode of Larry King:

"Dr. Phil will be here to tell us why we care about politics."

uh...huh?

The economy is in the toilet, economic indicators are plummeting, Osama Bin Laden is still at large seven years after major intelligence failures From highly politicized agencies resulted in 3,000 dead civilians...bail-outs of companies that can't manage to stay afloat despite ^ @! $ !!ing the public for all it is worth, and sticking us with the bill twice after passing laws that make it impossible for us to declare bankrupcy...

And Dr. Phil is going to explain to us why we care about politics?

I want to know, who are these dipshits who give a high-flying rat ^ @! $ !! what Dr. Phil thinks?

Dr. Phil: If you keep doing the same thing over and over and expect different results, then what does that tell you? You might as well be banging your head against the wall. If you want different results, you're going to have to try something different!

Mr. King: Well, that's very astute of you. Tell me, though, Dr. - How can we try something different when we have to follow the rules and the ones who write the rules don't? After all, they write the rules! If they break them, or want to break them, they can.

Dr. Phil: Then you may have to resort to drastic measures.

Mr. King: Are you suggesting that some type of revolution is necessary?

Dr. Phil: [silence followed by a "you got that right" look]

Mr. King: Really? A revolution?

Dr. Phil: Look. It's going to take a lot of interest on the part of the public to put people in office that will not only live by the rules, but throw the vast majority of them in the proverbial toilet. There are plenty of people who care deeply about what's happening in this country and want to do "the right thing." We need to get these people in office and we need to do it now!

Mr. King: Are you saying that government is being poorly run? ...then goes on to defend the actions of our "public servants."

It would be nice to see Dr. Phil do something like that, but he won't. And if he does, King will try to defend the status quo.

Mark,

Dr. Phil said that the thyroid had nothing to do with weight. In his out-loud voice. On national television.

If he can't see that the primary mechanism for regulating metabolism can be connected to weight issues, then there is little hope that he will connect a subverted media, a complacent electorate and glad-handing politicians to our current problems.

BTW, I notice that the media is starting to ask questions of Sarah Palin, and boy are the conservatives MAD! OMG!! The media is finally doing their job of asking questions and demanding answers!! And it only took eight years of terrible government!

grrrrr.

Yeah, I've never understood why people get mad when the media actually does their job. Don't we want to know if she is qualified? Shouldn't we dig deeply into her life to determine her judgement capabilities? Don't we want to know what she will do "If..."?

I think we do! And instead of getting angry at the media for asking questions, we should be studying the answers and reactions to those questions very carefully.

Kuicherbichen about what you think is fair or unfair and just answer the question! Would it help if we said "please?"
