We seem to be living in a world where the bad guys are flaunting their badness.
It’s obvious that Obama is using the border crisis to blackmail Republicans into immigration reform that could create a permanent majority for the Democrat Party. Yet, we convince ourselves is about humanitarianism.
It’s obvious that Hamas wants to destroy Israel and is willing to use children as weapons. Yet, we convince ourselves that Israel is like Nazi Germany and the Palestinians are victims.
It’s obvious that the U.N. is an anti-Semitic, anti-American organization with the latest example being the discovery of Hamas weapons at one of the UN schools. When discovered, they gave the weapons back to Hamas. Yet, we convince ourselves that the UN is the last best hope for world peace.
The nation’s editor, Matt Drudge, has tweeted a scoop about a tape drop tonight:
Perhaps, but look at everything we’ve seen this campaign season. Obama would have to murder an underage prostitute before the polls would show a significant blip while Romney has had everything and the kitchen sink thrown at him.
I marvel at the idea that there’s any piece of video tape at this point in the campaign that can have any effect. We accuse politicians and the media of living in a bubble, but I’m fear the general public may itself have been engulfed inside the bubble. What will it take to shock us to the core? I’m highly doubt we’ll be seeing it tonight, and that could be a bigger problem for our country than anything actually on the tape.
UPDATE: Well, here it is. Will it make any difference? My gut reaction is no. It should, but it won’t.
