Today is the day after Obama’s State of the Union speech. All day long, the pundits and reporters, analysts, and delusional self-important bloggers (myself not included, of course) will spew their opinions about what was said, what wasn’t said, what should have been said, what it meant or didn’t mean, and on and on and on. By 10:00 a.m. I will already be sick to death of this topic, and I haven’t even listened to Sean Hannity or Mark Levin (my afternoon regulars).
Everyday it’s like this. The same stories over and over and over, on every television channel, every radio station, every website, and every newspaper (the few that still exist). Then, a few days later, it’s as if the story never existed. We all move on to the next thing and listen to ourselves talk until that topic is talked to death, and move on again. A few months ago it was the extension of the Bush tax cuts, a few weeks ago it was the shooting in Tuscan, Arizona, today it is the State of the Union speech. Tomorrow it will be something new, and again, by 10:00 a.m., it will already be old.
