Maybe once in a generation somebody writes a comment so profound, so incisive, so utterly penetrating that suddenly you find yourself questioning everything. Has everyone you ever distrusted failed to fail you? Are lies really Truth? Is society on the brink of contentment? Are all social and political interactions governed by a passionate, altruistic Cosmic Enthusiasm? Can fear and loathing survive? And, perhaps most importantly of all, should the government kill people who opine without a license, especially on the subject of TV shows?
This is one of those comments.
As for the writer of this blog: maybe if you didnâ€™t have your head up your ass so much, you might be able to see the humor in Ms. Silvermanâ€™s show, and be able to like Ugly Betty. You and the other ladies that have posted here might think that youâ€™re better than the neocon majority, but your sour, Victorian attitude shows me that youâ€™re just as tightassed and moralistic as them. Prove me wrong and find enjoyment in life, or shut the fuck up and stop talking about popular culture: we already have people who critique that, and theyâ€™re paid for it.
