Politics Makes Me Sad

You know, it makes a sort of cosmic sense that Orwell is dead, because I don't think he could exist on the same planet as Frank Luntz. You've really got to listen to this Air America clip, it's just...I mean wow. It's the first time I can confidently call Orwellian an understatement. And, sadly, the private accounts-personal accounts switch is happening in full sight of, and with total cooperation from, the media. Keith Olbermann or some enterprising program should air a special on the manipulation of political language with this Administration's verbal contortions on Social Security being the backbone. That'd be Must-See TV, not too mention a service to their viewers. But, be honest, can you really see such an informative piece airing outside Jon Stewart's studio? Yeah, me neither.
