    Seems like a recipe for the continuing dumbing-down of political discussion in our country.

    I understand the need for tapping into the public's nerves with emotion, however, when does it all just become a "let's put little Johnny in a wheelchair and parade him in front of the cameras" Bushy State of the Union usefest?

    What happens when you feed the public sausage, purposefully omit telling them how it was made, and then, after you've porked them up, they find out what went into making it? A very unhappy proleteriat.
