Not Listening

February 6, 2011 Leave a comment

No, I’m not referring to the Super Bowl hype, though it’s true that I’m not listening to that. I won’t even turn on the TV until kickoff in half an hour. No one can possibly say anything new at this point about the teams and the matchup.

I’m talking about Ronald Reagan. His 100th birthday would have been today? Not listening! Don’t want to hear about it. Like the Super Bowl, everything I want to know about him I know already. I have no interest in the absurd cult that keeps growing around him. I will not participate in his beatification. Spare me. As far as I’m concerned, much that’s wrong with this country’s politics today can be traced back to him. So leave me out of it.

Now about that game. I better get ready to watch.
