Prediction time


My favorite eco (logical and nomic) disaster porn channel front the hour in just a few minutes.

Let’s see. What fare will they serve?

Germany rescue plan; fail.

Global markets down.

Russia.

US; seemingly powerless.

Bush/rescue; ineffective.

Palin; no evidence.

Polls; Obama up.

Quick cut to SNL.

Weather; some disaster somewhere.

Quick cut to Blitzer; the best political team on television.

“JACKSONVILLE, FL — The National Federation of the Blind is protesting an upcoming movie they say depicts blind people as “vicious” and “depraved.”

Members of the local chapter will meet Friday night at the premiere of “Blindness” in Tinseltown on the Southside, to protest the film.”

This is so far beyond ridiculous that it’s impossible to know where to start, so I’ll just rant. It’s just a movie, you unsighted morons, and you can’t even see it anyway, because you’re fucking blind!

I’m still laughing. Where the hell do these people get off?

Blindness indeed, on so many, many levels.
