Roger L. Simon points to Iran, which is a burning issue—but not one I can directly affect.
I’d point to cap and trade (the vote will be in the House the day after tomorrow on whether we should kick a struggling economy in the stomach); healthcare reform (on which there’ll be a dog and pony show tonight); the suicide of the fourth estate (demonstrated by a dog and pony show tonight); increased energy taxes (apart from the ones disguised by cap and trade), and the specter of Stimulus II: from Greater Depression to Greatest Depression.
Not to mention the corruption of the census process, the politically motivated firing of an IG, and the mis-allocation of funds for ACORN and Americorps.
I am not without compassion, but Gov. Sanford just handed the whole nation a crap sandwich that the press will chew on for weeks and weeks, while they ignore other – much more pressing and meaningful – stories. And in that way, we are all injured.
It’s okay, Babe: they would have found another crap sandwich. Did I mention that the cap and trade vote is on Friday, and the healthcare infomercial is tonight?
