Congress is in recess. The President and First Family are at Camp David. The Romney campaign is on hiatus. The Syrians are still killing each other. The Egyptians are trying to sort out their new government. The Libyans haven’t even gotten that far. Israel and Iran are still threatening each other. Putin’s finished his world victory lap. The Olympic torch is still running around somewhere. Anderson Cooper is gay. The economy is sludging along. People are tired of the hysteria over the Affordable Care Act and Fast and Furious. They are searching for Amelia Earhart, again. TomKat’s getting divorced. And the top movies involve male strippers and a debauched teddy bear.
The media is spinning its wheels, endlessly debating healthcare and gun walking because there’s nothing dramatically new, and filling time with backlogs of human interest stories.
In short – the news is so-o-o-o-o bo-r-r-r-ing this week.
