No, it's not over. However, the media has decided what we are going to focus on, and consequently so have the people. With Dean out, Nader in,
Bush and Kerry fighting off scandal, BS and innuendo at every turn, the media sits waiting for the cards to play out. As with the weeks immediately
around the invasion of Iraq, when you couldn't turn on a TV without watching some rooftop camera focused on an intersection or replays of explosion
after explosion, people got bored. Simple as that. If the media continues to closely follow the presidential hopefuls, we will stop watching. Until,
that is, one of them makes a fool of himself, or it is revealed that he was caught smoking banana peels with Tipper Gore on the Whitehouse roof or
something equally absurd.
Maybe there is a surprise "Ladies and Gentlemen, we got Osama" announcement coming, at which time we will be force fed the "all Osama channel",
but until then, Americans, with their 15 minute attention span, will feed on the neatly selected news items they are being served.
