The internet of things
Bitter and I were talking this morning about how this doesnt feel like the same country as it was a decade ago. Its easy to blame Obama, given his penchant for trolling middle America, but I think the problem goes deeper than that. Its easy to blame Cable News and Talk Radio, but those all existed for several decades, and it didnt make people all that much nastier. Some might argue that its the result of the self-esteem generation coming of age, but I dont think things get this bad this quickly with generational turnover.
Anymore, I kind of watch the whole political process as an interested outsider. And I laugh because, as someone I know said, BEST ELECTION EVER. I can’t disagree, from an entertainment perspective.
Where are we going and why am I in a handbasket?
