• Quote Unquote: Fierce and Drawn-Out Apathy

    Matt Taibbi on what he calls "the most boring election ever"…

    .

    "The people who work for the wire services and the news networks are physically incapable of writing sentences like, 'This election is even more over than the Knicks-Heat series.' They are required, if not by law then by neurological reflex, to describe every presidential campaign as 'fierce' and 'drawn-out' and 'hotly-contested.'"

    .
    You know, people tell me this all the time. But still, when I close my eyes, I see Emperor Romney, smiling down at his subjects from his throne atop the Washington Monument, dragon fire gleaming off his gold-gilded breastplate.

    Though, I have been reading a lot of Game of Thrones stuff recently. Might be that's not Mitt Romney I'm seeing, butĀ Aegon the Conqueror. They have similar cheekbones.
