Somebody Finally Said Something Smart on Fox News

Politics is weird. And creepy. And now I know lacks even the loosest attachment to anything like reality.

Nothing is more facetious than politics, as exemplified by Mitt Romney’s statement on Newt Gingrich dropping out of the race to become the Republican Presidential nominee. These guys were trashing each other for months and now they’re BFF’s? People can talk all the shit they want about reality TV but I’ve seen more realism on The Hills and Basketball Wives than in Romney’s statement. I’m glad Shep Smith called it like it is. Too many commentators would play along and take the statement at face value. Viewers follow their lead and that’s how we get nuts like the Tea Partiers. Politicians are people too. If they don’t have real thoughts and emotions, like it appears Romney lacks, then they shouldn’t be President.
