IT CERTAINLY IS BIG, ISN'T IT?
The Rogue Speaks:
The editorial cartoon, I mean. You all know that I am not tech savvy, so the only way I could figure out how to make it big enough so you could actually read it and laugh along with me was to use a gadget. Works for me!
So let's talk about those idiots Fitz is referring to in his cartoon. They used to really piss me off, but now, not so much. Now I just find them annoying and stupid. They have been fueled by the right-wingnut conservatives who have wound them up like the Energizer Bunny, and they keep going and going. First, they were mad that Obama was a member of Rev. Wright's Christian church, and now they're outraged because they think Obama's secretly a Muslim (I know, Fitz, but I liked yours better).
I guess I should be a little scared that there are SO MANY idiots in America today, listening to the wingnuts' and Fox, and Rush Limbaugh, who is in my opinion a genuine sociopath. He has the innate ability to know just how to push people's buttons and garner their support by fueling their rage. He does it only for money and fame, but they haven't figured that out yet, and may never!
O.k., well, I am a little scared. It is so hard to get through to some of these people! They have just enough education to know how to read, but not enough to recognize fact from fiction. We are going to see more and more of these idiots if funding to education keeps dropping.
I know what you're thinking--"she's going back to her 'art and music in schools' jag." Well, maybe. You have to agree that creative people like artists, musicians, and writers, just aren't as narrow-minded and mean-spirited as those ultra-conservative types.
You have to agree that better education produces more informed, more creative members of society, exactly the kind of individuals that we want to run our country in the future. It's sad that the idiots are too busy being enraged to see that.
