So the big news is "Republican Governors!". . . in states that have a long tradition of electing republican governors. When was the last time a governor of any party voted on a single piece of federal legislation?
Of course, the big story before last night was the fact that the moderate republican was out and the right wing Limbaugh/Beck/Palin takin it up the ass republican was in. Well, looks like the New York congressional district in question that hadn't elected a democrat to congress in over 100 yrs has rejected the republicans and their ridiculous sophomoric fascist tactics and elected a democrat to congress. Hello? Is anybody out there? Not much talk about that this morning. Thought that was going to be the big news the day after?!
So a couple republican take governor's seat in a VERY minor off year election that in previous times would have gone totally unnoticed. But in these days of 24/7/265 news cycles, where hyping every little morsel of any event is the standard operating procedure, this insignificant election suddenly spells the future of American politics.
Man, I am so glad I've turned all this shit off, don't watch the talking heads anymore and only log on occasionally. What a waste of time.
Marshall Mcluhan warned us. He spelled it out for us. He was specific about how it would come about and what the consequences would be. It wasn't a prediction, it was a solid estimation based upon the facts and trends of the day. Why do human being ignore inevitability of certain catastrophes?
