Shorter USA Today

.
NEWSFLASH!!! - Al Gore is a Big Phony!


And the people who work for USA Today aren't?

For the ultimate in butt-kissing hypocrisy, it takes a journalist. Any day now I expect to read some screed about how Al breathes out carbon dioxide. ("A major contributor to global warming!")

    The day that that --- dreck hit the stands is, I think, the high-water mark on the dumbing-down of Murka.

    Shit, even the local republicunt newspaper has resorted to smaller pages, less news, and color pik-tewers to lure in the sheeple.

    "Journalism" has become as "quaint" a concept as Chili Bean's opinion of the Constitution and the Geneva Conventions.

    You have to wonder sometimes if it ever really was a noble profession, or if it was just more of the same ol' bullshit gilded to look important.

    Wellllll, I was young & naive enough to believe so when I went to journalism school, but eventually, enough of that "old boys' club" bullshit about how "girls" could only write the obits, the society page, and "human interest shit" was enough to get me to switch schools to a film program.

    ...and we see how well THAT worked out, don't we?

    I grew up in the '70s, when Woodward & Bernstein still meant something, when journalism and publicity were supposed to help people save the world... *sigh* Of course, back in the '70s, GERALDO was a journalist...

    I feel old.

    And yes, I know about the Hearst era of yellow journalism, about the pulp crap sensationalist racism that "justified" the eminent domain genocide as the West was "settled," and I know how every war since the 1776 was pushed & promoted by "journalists." But there were a coupla good ones here and there.

    I got "Good Night & Good Luck" from Netflix, just to depress myself further. Now I just gotta sit down and watch it.

    I'm not saying there were no decent people who were journalists. Only that - much like doctors - the idea that the entire profession consists of selfless do-gooders doesn't stand up to close examination.

    Did you love it that some reporter threw Tony Snow's comments on executive privilege from back in the Clinton days in his face at yesterday's press conference? Of course, he claims the current situation is TOTALLY DIFFERENT.

    The next time some GOP cunt says anything to me about ethics or morality, I'm going to spit right square in his or her face.

    That still makes my flesh crawl, to hear those hypocritical pissants talk about "dignity" and "morals" --- "once saved, always saved"? No matter how much you fuck up, no matter how many people that you purposefully destroy/murder/rob blind, no matter how many sovereign nations you invade, no matter how many billions that you steal from the U.S. Treasury --- if you stick to that "christian" alibi, then you're a "better" person than a guy who got some sloppy hummers whilst the country was actually FUNCTIONING.

    Don't get me wrong, I've still got a few problems with Clinton, not the least of which was his piglet tendencies, but before he sold-out to the Bushies, he DID get a few things very fucking right. And the bullshit of that pompous ass Ken Starr electing himself the "moral guide" of the entire fucking NATION --- and now defending the school system that suspended the 'Bong Hits 4 Jesus' kid --- if I saw that arrogant, judgemental cocksucker crossing the road, he would SO be a speed bump! Millions of dollars wasted, two years of a successful presidency wasted, and for what? So that Ken Starr can do the rounds of the public-speaking-to-sheeple circuit?

    And trust me, hon, I know better than some people how big of a load of crap that whole "nobility" stereotype is about doctors --- they're raised to believe that they're better than everyone else, they're trained to treat the patients like so much livestock, and yet we're supposed to kowtow to their arrogant asses? Pfft. They abuse the privilege, just like everybody else.

    When it comes to journalists, though, I tend to get even pissier, every time that I watch the local news or most of CNN --- it's as if the former requisite for getting a JOB as a journalist, y'know, AN EDUCATION IN JOURNALISM AND WRITING, PERIOD --- has been utterly disregarded in favor of obedient talking heads, bimbettes, himbos, big hair and "patter."

    I'll take Jack Cafferty over Wolf Blitzer's nothing ass, ANYDAY. I still don't get why he's such hot shit, the "Scud Stud", right. Like you can't watch him on-air and see, with every word that comes out of his mouth, how much he misses being a little bitch-boy for the Reagan campaign.

    Guess how he pronounced "Tehran" today --- MULTIPLE TIMES???

    "Terror-Rahn"!!!!!!!!!!!

    Seriously. At least three times. I could've put my foot through the TV set. We know who Wolf works for, don't we.

    And yes, Tony Snow is a chickenshit little biatch whore. He worked for FOX, for fuck's sake!!! I can't believe that anybody expected him to do anything OTHER than publicly fellating Biggus Dickus. And yes, I highly enjoyed watching him get bitch-slapped with his own arrogance, but not nearly as much as I enjoyed watching Barbara Boxer bitch-slap that oil whore Inhofe. THAT shit was CLASSIC!!!

    I didn't really like Clinton or Gore either one. Slick didn't impress me a bit, (I always thought of him as GOP-lite, like Lieberman) and I've despised Gore since he and Tipper pulled that PMRC shit on the Dead Kennedys.

    But even I got to where I was like, "C'mon, that's enough - he doesn't deserve this" towards the end of Clinton's term. Looking back, he wasn't a half-bad President, especially compared to most Republicans.

    Same with Gore. Much as I hated him, there comes a point where enough is enough.

    Welllll, when Clinton came in, I was naive enough to believe the marketing. Probably because he's southern, etc. But as much good as he did, he kinda blew it all out of the water with his excuse for "foreign policy" --- selective humanity, only *some* countries were good enough to receive Murkin aid, but not all, etc. And, y'know, he was a REALLY SLOPPY WHORE. But yes, they pissed away billions of dollars and a big hunk of our constitution with that witch-hunt.

    I still think that Al Gore has potential, but no, I'll never forgive fucking TIPPER for the PMRC shit. Who in the fuck did she think she WAS, anyway??!?!? And how fucking lame do you have to be that Dee Snider looks ELOQUENT, compared to you?!???! No, I'm not a fan of Dee's, especially since he got a radio show, the right-wing Jersey jerk. ZAPPA, on the other hand... *sigh* I miss Frank. And I still love the mighty DK --- have a "Holiday In Cambodia" poster in my shoebox-sized living room.

    And what in the hell is it going to take for somebody to finally institutionalize John McCain? He really has gone 'round the bend --- I saw him chanting some jingoistic bullshit about never leaving Iraq, 'cause the tarrists will come here, blah blah blah, and it was so fucking pathetic. I think that he snapped the day that he hugged Dumbya in public, but it was more along the lines of him just going into rigor-mortis, while Dumbya hugged him and grinned like a possum eating shit. Arms hanging down, face buried (possibly in what tattered remnants of shame that he may still possess?) in Dumbya's shoulder, away from the cameras --- I think that the last thread of humanity and sanity that John McCain had was splintered into a billion shards that day (much like fiberoptic cable in a blender), and he is goooooooonnnnnnne.

    It's sad, really. Not that he had a helluva lot of spine or character to start with, from what I've seen, but to just watch him disintegrating on television... Somebody should put him out of his misery. It's not funny insanity, like watching Ross Perot's ears flap, it's really pitiful.
