All human history, and just about everything else as well, consists of a never-ending struggle against ignorance.

Too Much Attention

Right now the Repubs can't be too happy with their near monopoly of what passes for political news in the country, for fear that it attracts too much attention to the pitiful bunch of aspirants, the Crazy Eight, that they have competing to be chosen as their candidate for President.

This contradicts the conventional wisdom that any publicity at all is good, but that shows how badly those lunatics in all their reckless screaming and running about have upended nearly all the furniture in the American house.

Even with the control of the mainsteam media that the conservatives enjoy through the ownership of all the outlets by tycoons who are all Republican, which is so total that even formerly enlightened publications like the Washington Post and the New York Times have long since gone "under," the media still can't keep the U.S. public completely uninformed, misinformed, ignorant, and malicious all by itself.

At least I keep hoping that it can't, but time is still waiting to tell.
