On Fluke, and Person of the Year
This past week, there was a media kerfuffle over Sandra Fluke's nomination as Time Magazine's Person of the Year.
I think it's appropriate.
If there's one lesson we've learned the hard way this past year, it's how malinformed, narcisscistic, and flat-out stupid, the American people have allowed themselves to become; who better reflects this pathetic reality than Fluke?!?
Fluke convinced a critical mass of the electorate to vote for subsidized orgasms. That's not good, but it is an accomplishment. It obviously worked.
I diagnosed the core problem here. My proposed solution is here. For now, however, Sandra Fluke for Person of the Year strikes me as a sadly appropriate snapshot of America in 2012.
Update: At least keeping Fluke in the news is a good for a laugh at the expense of Angry Liberals.
Update II: As I'm writing this, there's a spoiled child screaming in the background whose demands were just appeased by his parents.
