Will it ever end?
Forrest Covington at The Muse at Sunset notes that it's not just popular-music types who are contributing to the polarization of the nation:
This whole election, actually the last four years since the last election, political stridency has spilled over like a toxic oil slick into areas of life hitherto uncorrupted. A lot of artist types have helped exacerbate the trend, mostly pop musicians and "actorvists", but some of the more "serious" types have offended as well. I recall especially Stockhausen's bizarre remark that September 11th was a "work of art".
[Insert "Karlheinz" joke here.]
Less than a week before the election, and already I wish 2008 was over and done with. One tradition that of the gracious loser was basically stomped to death four years ago; I shudder to imagine the next victim.
