Sarah Palin ‘Game Change’ Film: The Dumbing-Down of US Politics


The film illustrate a much bigger problem, not just the few as a commentator (see the link below) called it political ignomarius, but rather, a political ignormarius of the entire US population, most of whom can not even point to where South Korea is, or a mere who is their treasury secretary, or what is TARP? or the simple economic crisis nature on the nation, which has been faced with for the past 5 or so years? or what are the differences between the republicans and the democrats? However, ask them any constitutional questions, they will somehow provide a false indication of knowledge in the national politics, but alas, this culture is due largely to ‘the cultic nature of US constitution’, and not knowledge.

Anyway this link from Washington Post is an excellent reading on Sarah Palin and other politicians, written by Richard Cohen at http://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/sarah-palin-and-other-ignorant-candidates/2012/03/12/gIQAoOPG8R_story.html

For the documentary from HBO can be located here, free to watch: http://www.putlocker.com/file/DBE1AFF38D514944

Before we go, the recent events in Afghanistan, are unfortunate and have really opened up a ‘can of whoop a**’ for the brave soldiers down there, watch out for the coming retaliatory massacre from Taliban and others (I have always supported the war in Afghanistan, and the work of our soldiers there, against all odds on them). The acts that united the fishes and sea!

Good Headlines:
