I was leafing through a pile of old magazines at the doctor the other day when I saw some deathless prose by Bob Geldof proclaiming Obama as "America's first Rock 'n' Roll President".
Leaving aside the issue of whether a has-been old muso (who last had something interesting in the shops when I was still a child) is actually a celebrity, as opposed to a relentless self-promoting twat, I was struck by the clarity of his assessment, especially since it was assessed at the time of The One's coronation. Later revelations have shown him to be a serial incompetent, dogged by controversy over his typical "Chicago machine" politics.
So, given that Bob's assessment was not exactly as accurate as Paul the Octopus, I did wonder why it is that media whores and people who a talent for being able to sing a pop song have such highly venerated opinions?
Do people really think to themselves, "Those lasses from Girls Aloud can really carry a tune, I'll let them influence my political reasoning?" And, as far as I can see, they actually do. Newspapers and magazines carry this endless vacuous drivel precisely because they know that people actually do buy it.
But lately, I'm beginning to wonder if even the cloth-brained fucknuts of the mentally defective class aren't beginning to question this endless parade of mindless stupidity. Surely someone must be beginning to notice that these twats are either completely wrong or just surfing a wave of media interest in something, so they have to articulate an opinion on it.
The fact that their opinions are mindless and illogical, shines through like lighting on a black night.
Surely, people must be starting to see through this shit?
They're not, are they?
