I came across a post on the Facebook page of the Melissa Harris Perry Show. The post asked if it was important that Mittens (Mitt Romney for the uninitiated) release his tax information and provide clarity on his time with Bain Capital.
I used to reside in Nerdland, but as much as I like Dr. Perry ( a good looking sister with brains and a PhD gets my attention anytime), I guess I wasn’t geeky enough because I fail to see the impact that the “Romney-Bain-taxes-offshore accounts” topic or any other topic she comes up with has on American government.
This malaise isn’t relegated to Dr. Perry of course. Dr. Rachel Maddow suffers from it. So does Chris Hayes, and Sean Hannity.
Bill O’Reilly exhibits minute bouts of the “this crap we are spewing on the American public is not relevant” disease, but for the most part keeps it under control.
I tolerate Lawrence O’Donnell because he looks straight into the camera, admits he’s a socialist, and doesn’t create too much drama with his rhetoric. Besides, Mr. O’Donnell re-tweeted one of my tweets once so I remain appreciative of him for that.
Martin Bashir and Al Sharpton have driven me to the point where I have canceled cable service to ensure that neither my ten-year old son nor I will have inadvertent access to their mindless irrelevant drivel.
Mitt Romney’s tax returns; his dog Seamus; his wife’s show horse, or his ten houses don’t tell me how he will manage his cabinet, develop policies, or persuade Congress to fund his agenda. The media hasn’t addressed any of these important aspects of running the executive branch.
I guess the basics of government bore you guys.
