Kickass, the doorstop dog, reports that the keeper is having difficulty staying on his diet of exposure to stupidity and absurdity because, quite simply, there is so damn much of both that it is like trying to avoid wet feet while wading. So the news cycle is tied in knots over a stupid man’s criticism of a dead hero, or the spectacle of that same stupid man caught between what must be interesting pillow talk of one of his advisors and her husband, or the seemingly endless parade of crooked liars marching from the White House to court houses and ultimately to prison, or increasing legislative moves to enlarge the divide between the haves and have-nots, or legislation to shore up the bankers’ position in the student loan mega outrage, or the necessity of the courts to step in and rein in the absolute arrogance of State Legislators refusing to even talk about the unfairness of gerrymandered voting districts, or the way the infinite tragedy of 100 people killed each day by guns is totally ignored, or………. The keeper had hoped to lose at least 20 or 30 points of stupidity and absurdity on his diet, but it is not looking good. He may have to consider a self-induced coma, even given the cost and health risks of staying drunk.
