every day's a holiday, the day you live without it
-- 'it's over,' written by aimee mann, from her album @#%&*! smilers
america the beautiful is now america the perfect.
did you miss the memo?
check out a week's worth of democracy now, for example.
nothing happened in america.
every segment was amy goodman yammering away about egypt.
good thing the united states is perfect and doesn't need attention - especially from american citizens.
the orgy over egypt has been so telling. 1st off it indicates just how unintelligent so many are. they foolishly believe they can become experts on egypt by blogging about daily events for a week.
never having given a moment's thought to the country prior, now it's all the blogger brigade can offer.
last time i checked, egypt didn't provide americans with jobs. last time i checked, egypt didn't decide whether the u.s. continues wars. last time i checked, egypt had nothing to do with congress' move to again extend the patriot act.
but the egypt orgy papers over all of that and so much more.
how very wonderful for our elected politicians in america. they're spared an informed public and provided the cover to do whatever they want.
thank you to Wally for twice this week blogging here to cover the u.s. senate's efforts to continue the iraq war. i'm glad to have wally fill in at any time but especially thrilled in a week when the u.s. media and the bloggers ignored important developments in this country to jerk off over egypt.
let's close with c.i.'s 'Iraq snapshot:'
