        that, especially since I don't believe programming is necessarily designed by political operatives to the same ends. Why go to all that trouble when you are even more successful using the direct approach?

          I'm not saying that operatives directly promote crapotainment culture, but they certainly do benefit from it in that it makes voters even more stupid.

          Also, I'm not into that whole Mystery Science Theater 3000 ironic/campy/I'm just pretending to be a clueless rube to show how clever I am and above it all stuff. Beyond a certain point, it's functionally the same thing as that which it purports to mock, if not worse, because it's self-aware.

          And yes, I am a grouch. ;-)

          •  I can see that. I just don't think (0+ / 0-)

            these entertainment execs are doing it. I wouldn't put it past them, either, to be sure . . .
