CARTOONS: Has American pop culture become too dumb for Beavis and Butt-Head? – chicagotribune.com
sounds like somebody let a part of them die, then tried to blame it on the easy target of resurrected pop culture … Now, all the people i know who didn’t let their inner child die, self included, thought the new B&B went off without a hitch, as if it had never stopped. Shuffle that new ep into the other 180, and aside from the Twilight reference, I don’t think anybody in 1997 could have told the difference.
Verdict: Article is a FAIL. And a predictable one, too. Criticizing the latest adaptation / reboot / resurrection of a subversive-cum-mainstream pop culture franchise is the cornerstone of hipster journalism.
WAR ON DRUGS: U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency Expands War on Drugs – NYTimes.com
Yup. The D.E.A. has commando squads now. Bush created them for Afghanistan, and Obama expanded them to a shit-ton of other countries. The hope and change you voted for, right?
ISRAEL: Reporters confirm Sarkozy’s & Obama’s dig on Nathanyahu
Yup. The leader of Israel is an asshole, and even the other leaders of the world are tired of their shit. Obama getting caught saying “You’re fed up with him, but I have to deal with him every day!”
And why is a tiny little country in the middle east our daily business? Lobbying, oil, religion.
Of course, Obama’s press will not mention this. Mr. Government Transparency only let reporters in if they promised to only discuss things that the government approves. American journalism is so fucking dead.
