THE GREATEST SPINNING EVER SOLD
THE MEDIA SPREADS ITS' HOARY LEGS
"The Only Stupid Question Is The One You Didn't Ask"
Like, "Hey, what's the rush?" Like, "Why doesn't Bush wait for the results, or Kerry's concession before declaring victory?" Or even, "How do we even know who won, with no paper trail?"
Media superstars get six, seven, eight figures a year, for some reason. I guess somebody figures they're worth it. But, is it for the questions they ask, or the questions they don't ask? The above seemed pretty obvious, pretty good, pretty fair questions, given the importance of this election, above all elections. But none of those millionaires asked those questions. I wonder why not?
Lawyers always say "Never ask a question you don't know the answer to; or don't WANT to know the answer to." Good advice, in court. But, what about on TV, the radio, or in the newspaper? How else can they find stuff out, if they don't ask questions? Do they just assume stuff? Or do they already know the answers? If so, why aren't they sharing them with us? Aren't they always going on about the public's right to know? Well, guys, don't we have a right to know what's up with this election?
It's our election, after all. They're running for our votes, right? So, how is it that, as soon as we cast them, we lose control of our votes? How is it that we have no more say, for four more years? How is it that no one is accountable to us for our votes? I mean, they're not even waiting a day, a week, a month, a year to blow us off any more. it's happening on election night, before all the votes are even counted.
So, here's my question. It's a simple one. What the hell is going on here? Oh, and why isn't anybody else asking that question, for a million bucks?
Hm. I think I may have just answered my own question: For a million bucks.
