New Year's Eve is almost upon us. Revelers celebrate the coming of 2013 - with an admonition to stay sober .... Or if not, at least not to drive.
But what are we Americans to say about this column? It's a story of insanity - well; one might say, several stories of insanity.
Political advantage? People who exploit dead children and anguished parents to press an agenda are soulless ghouls. The people's right to know? Spare me. I could give you laundry list of things the people had a right to know about before the presidential election, and the same self-anointed gate-keepers were more than happy to keep a ton of information suppressed until after it was over.
Ironically, the Benghazi story offers a clue as to what these people are really all about. Most of the MSM didn't give a hoot about four murdered Americans, or the most transparent disinformation campaign in recent memory that followed those murders, until Benghazi became a story about which
general was making it with which bimbo. In short, we have become a nation where sensationalism trumps substance, and decency and decorum are little more than anachronisms that only a decreasing number of dinosaurs who now constitute a minority of Americans choose to consider. I could say shame on the majority, but I'm pretty sure that word has no meaning anymore, either.
If this doesn't knock you cold sober - then read it again... and again!
