This ad appeared on my Youtube today.

Seriously, what current issue in our nation’s deteriorating trajectory does this not insult? America’s over-crowded prisons? America’s daily widening income gap between rich and working class and poor? America’s lack of support for the peoples of the world trying to shake off US-funded despotism? America’s ignorant and self-masturbatory culture of apathy?

When you look at the videos that are circulating around Youtube, of Egyptian and Tunisian revolts, and, especially in Egypt’s case, the footage of secret police “suppressing” protesters by running them down in cars, you realize just what a grotesque, distorted and insane media culture we live in.
