After reading Under the Dome's syrupy coverage of the Palin creature yesterday, I have decided to eliminate the gossip column entirely from my media diet. No more political junk food for me.
I encourage you to do the same.
It's not just that the Dome's coverage is beginning to smell like a wormy box of Cracker Jacks, it's also the fact that right-wing lunatics increasingly dominate the discussion there. The Dome will get its knickers in a knot if someone uses the word ass, while standing silently in the face of seething hatefulness from several of its regulars. And in the Palin reporting, there was no mention whatsoever of her supporters degenerating into a blood-thirsty lynch mob.
I say let the wingers have the place. As it devolves into a whacked-out version of Fast Food Nation, I suspect it will collapse under the weight of so much madness. But if it survives, it will do so without the benefit of my eyeballs.
