The problem is that we've gone from Lone Ranger to Star Trek to Full House to Jersey Shore. It's a downward spiral of sick controversy instead of substance. Heck, I believe even the NFL is starting to look like a reality show.

What's really interesting is that they're talking about the exact same issues we're talking about now. You could take the sound clips and overdub them onto a debate from a couple weeks ago and few people would be able to tell the difference.
Nothing has changed. Nothing has been fixed.
And people wonder why everyone is so pissed off they're ready to vote for a hairpiece stuffed in a suit.

"Let them eat cake" is the traditional translation of the French phrase "Qu'ils mangent de la brioche", supposedly spoken by "a great princess" upon learning that the peasants had no bread. Since brioche was a luxury bread enriched with butter and eggs, the quote would reflect the princess's disregard for the peasants, or at least a complete lack of understanding that the absence of basic food staples was due to poverty rather than a lack of supply.
