In Politics as in Wartime, the Public is a Casualty

Raise your hand if you have become irritated with sound bites, glossy ads, baby-kissing, union-halls forums and now the increasingly annoying dirt-slinging between political camps.  If you are gay but fiscal conservative, you are attacked by gays; if you exercise free speech to attack one-time ubiquitous American values, you get center-stage. If you use free-speech to criticize others championed by the same suck-up media, you are a bigot.   Profits earned by business – other than those who fund the political machine of the party in the White House are despicable. But what about the suck-up media which profits enormously from it’s muck-raking??  Not much different than the campaigning of two hundred years ago.
