  •  Who are the idiot producers who book that... (7+ / 0-)

    ...p.o.s. for an appearance to promote yet another of her worthless p.o.s. books?

    Why, WHY, does this woman (<-loose use of term) get the time of day from anyone with half a brain cell?

    I'd like to believe even ratings-hungry producers have something approximating standards...

    •  There are far, far too many (6+ / 0-)

      of them to begin to count.  And they are the same people who keep promoting a close race to keep the adoring public interested.

      Imagine the media reported the election like 538.com does.  Would anyone besides the really hardcore political types watch the debates?  No because there would be no reason.  Like bandwagon sports fans, they would go to the polls and pull the lever for the guy who is clearly winning because most people want to feel like they are on the winning team.

      That's my theory anyway.

      •  I'd really enjoy telling you you're wrong... (3+ / 0-)

        ...but I'd be wrong telling you that, because I know you're right.  

        I guess us political junkies will have to just settle for fair-weather voters.

        But can you imagine...?  What sorts of kick-ass public policies we could achieve/problems we could solve if people really did pay attention, think, and debate?  The possibilities make me drool...
