Some of it's not lazy. Some of it took a lot of hard work and learning to acquire.

I suspect that lazy, blanket cynicism has poisoned the political atmosphere of this country just as badly as partisan bickering at this point.

Yes. I wouldn't say the whiny, conspiracy-obsessed "blogosphere" has helped matters either.

I wish that Letterman would have made it less about Letterman being snubbed and more about his actual thoughts. He made his case but it was buried in a temper tantrum... he could have had a Craig Ferguson moment (that people actually saw  ;D).

both parties are shit at this point.
both parties This country is are shit at this point.

I fix.

Yeah, Yeah. The country's in the terlet and we're all gonna die (eventually). I know Barack's not our savior, despite his boyishly handsome good looks. But let's at least try changing the oil and rotating the tires. Let's rotate the tires on this terlet. Let's puree the hell out of this metaphor.

Double negative. That means you admit it.

The speed of the dialogue/information too, lends itself towards political hypersensitivity.  (I know I'm guilty of getting suckered in/wrapped up in it sometimes.)

Does anyone else notice that his left eye is droopy? Is that a new thing? Is this man running for president and having strokes at the same time?

I just noticed that. Maybe it has been there all along...

That line on the bottom of the screen showing partisan reaction was stupid and distracting.

That debate was so meh. I'm way more exited for the Palin/Biden debate. I've developed a sort of grotesque obsession with Sarah Palin. Will she freeze like a deer in headlights, or will she find some debate skils and "bring em to ya?" Stay tuned.
