STATE OF THE NATION-JACKSON OR CRONKITE

I hope the aliens are not watching our cable channels!  If they are they know that we are a very shallow society who spent 22 hours a day for more than a week swooning over Michael Jackson at his death.  Sure , he made music some of you liked and some of us didn’t.  The only thing he did for me was make me want to puke.  He looked like and was a freak.  He was a freak that we all suspected was a child molester (yeah he was found not guilty) but then so was OJ and you all think he killed his wife.(he probably did)  But you continue to adore this freak who could dance and sing.

Shortly thereafter the greatest newsman of my day passed away and our fair and balance cable news channels in proportion to the Jackson slobbering said “Oh by the way,Walter Cronkite has died”.

What the hell does that say for us?  It was good for HDTV sales, I broke sixteen of them during that week. Every time they said Jackson was bigger than the Beatles, bigger than Elvis it cost me a TV.  Jackson was a freak and probably a pervert to match.  He won’t be missed in this house.

    You’re such a hater! Why not celebrate both Michael and Cronkite? You know, Cronkite was on board with Vietnam until 1968, when everybody jumped off. News wasn’t any better in those days. It’s been corrupt since at least WWII. Anyway, watch “Living With Michael Jackson,” on MSNBC sometime and perhaps you’ll feel a little sympathy for the freak. You have to embrace the freakiness!
