Sometimes, my ego gets the best of me. Forgive me Father Des.
It was an honest mistake at first. I clicked on a Huffington Post feed thru my blog only because I wanted to see what people found so fascinating about Katie Couric (with accompanying photos) and her lack of makeup that would cause over 300 people to comment.
That's when I stumbled onto the Lost Dutchman of stupid. This is what fascinates America. Earlier this week I was reading a poll about how other countries detest Americans. Thankfully, I am not required to choose a side. I have to tell you, I am a shade embarrassed at my countrymen. These are the great minds of tomorrow.
People were taking the time to comment as though Katie Couric's makeup is important. Most were just saying the usual, nasty shit about Katie that they might say about anyone else. A few were making comments similar to mine, minus the profound sense of respect and tact that I usually display. The link is below. I am fascinated by Huffpo. It's like a petri dish for stupid. Everything you need to know about a superficial USA is on display here. No wonder politicians hold citizens in contempt and treat them like sheep. Proof here. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/01/12/katie-couric-makeup-free_n_2462983.html?ir=Media
I couldn't contain myself. I took the bait and left a comment of my own. (see below) There will be at least 10 nasty responses in my inbox tomorrow. It is cheap entertainment. I can't believe I have 3 fans.
Forgive me Des, I'm still working on tolerance.
