You're Kidding, Right?

Congress consumed by politics, opines an Associated Press (AP) headline today.

Well no shit!? You've got to be kidding! No effin' shit! Damn. I'd never never have expected that!

Now I see the what the bias in the media really is: stupidity. Huge, dizzying, stupefying piles of stupidity. Or maybe cupidity. But a wise person once suggested to me, and it's stood me in good stead for a long time, not to posit malice when stupidity is a sufficient explanation for whatever apparent evil has me confused.

It could be cupidity. But the stupidity thing is sort of the Occam's Razor of differentiating evil and stupidity. In the immortal words of Albert Einstein, Make everything as simple as possible, but not simpler.

Of course, ol' Bert is supposed also to have said [o]nly two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former. Obviously a man with a fine-tuned sense of people.

So, to get back to where we started, stupidity. And the media. It occurs to me that among the current crop of media hacks, there must run a vein of stupidity unparalleled in human history. With the possible exception of the one running through Scientologists.

I mean, come on. These people get paid to observe and report on current events and politics and people and all of those other sociological sorts of things, and they're so obtuse that it surprises them that, OH MY GOD!, politics politicizes things! Holy shit!

These people must be singularly detached from, or ignorant of, well, just about everything, I guess. It should've been obvious to anyone with two active neurons to rub together and an even basic ability to observe. It's not like this is something new. I guess they don't have to read Julius Caesar in school anymore. Or history.

But this is quickly going to cover ground already handled in Good Morning, Your Highness, so I'll stop now.

Stupid. Just effin' stupid.
