News Slop

This morning just about everything I read/look at is pure shit.
If the Republicans have one more debate I might blow chunks all over my laptop — the blow-hole event last night was enough to make anyone sick to their inner-most bowels with such empty, vain-glory bluster that anyone not of this earth might go WTF!
Who/what are these people?

Newt’s vile reproach against the media was a wonder — beyond the debate audience, does anyone out there really think these people could be president?
And Newt’s ex-wife is still waiting: “He could say he’s sorry, but he never has,” Marianne Gingrich said on ‘Nightline.’

An August 2010 interview in Esquire magazine with Marianne Gingrich:

He thinks of himself as president, you tell her.
He wants to run for president.
She gives a jaundiced look.
“There’s no way,” she says.
She thinks he made a choice long ago between doing the right thing and getting rich, and when you make those choices, you foreclose other ones.
“He could have been president. But when you try and change your history too much, and try and recolor it because you don’t like the way it was or you want it to be different to prove something new … you lose touch with who you really are. You lose your way.”
She stops, ashes her cigarette, exhales, searching for the right way to express what she’s about to say.
“He believes that what he says in public and how he lives don’t have to be connected,” she says.
“If you believe that, then yeah, you can run for president.”

And from an Esquire update from yesterday (Thursday):

This is the real story, which is almost the opposite of the one that’s hitting the media now.

The real story isn’t that Gingrich committed adultery — an act every bit as offensive as sodomy to the actual Bible, if not to modern Christians — over and over and over again.
The real story is that Newt Gingrich is so deeply conflicted and strange, so erratic and unreliable, so scheming and secretive, that he’s way too much like a character out of Dostoevsky than a politician should ever be.

But wait, isn’t that what US peoples are inheriting with an allowance of dick-headness — Republican Rep. Peter King, an absolute-asshole in his own right, had this to say about Newt: “The House is on the line this year,” Mr. King said. “I believe we can take back the Senate. We have to win the presidency. Having Newt at the top puts all of that in danger. And then, if he were elected president, to me the whole country would be in danger.”

So far, 2012 is shaping up to be one freak year — and the news slop keeps coming.
