Tonight's the night that millions of people of all ages, all income levels, and all ethnicities will be turning on the television to pay rapt attention to an unflinching, no-holds-barred look at the nightmarish problems and challenges currently shaping America and the dismal prospects for our future.
We are referring, of course, to "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo."
But political junkies may prefer tuning in to the first of the Presidential Debates, during which Barack Barry Hussein Soetoro Obama will be asked what kind of ice cream he likes, and challenger Mitt Romney will be asked to give the exact value of Pi to the thousandth decimal, while dodging thrown vegetables, livestock, and quite possibly small arms fire from the debate moderator.
Which is a great pity, because there are a lot of important questions which desperately need straight answers from this president - and we doubt many will be asked.
• Why is the president using executive privilege to cover up who in his administration is responsible for the bloody "Fast & Furious" massacres? And how does he feel about yet another border agent being murdered by the kinds of people he's been giving guns to?
• Exactly who, outside of the president's immediate family, political cronies, and Sandra Fluke's parade of boyfriends is better off than they were four years ago?
• Why is the price of health insurance and healthcare treatment going up for almost all Americans when the president promised Obamacare would bend the cost curve downward?
• When the president tells Russia he'll have "more flexibility" after the election, what exactly does that mean - and why doesn't he want voters to know about it now?
• Why did the president tell the world that the attack in Benghazi was not terrorism when he knew that it was? Why hasn't he even initiated an investigation to find those who murdered our Ambassador and Navy Seals? Followup question: Did the president really think killing Bin Laden was the same as defeating Al-Qaeda?
• Why is the president against school choice, considering it is poor minority communities who are hurt worst by our current school system?
• Why hasn't the president asked the Democrat Senate to produce even one budget during his entire first term? And why is the Commander-in-Chief ready to accept crippling cuts to the military budget because his alleged "supercommittee" couldn't find any budget cuts acceptable to the president's party?
• What steps is the president taking to prevent going over the fiscal cliff in approximately 90 days, raising taxes across the board and, according to every expert, forcing this country into a new and deeper recession?
• What's the f*cking deal with all the golf?!
We doubt that these or similarly important questions will get asked. And no matter what the queries are, Obama will throw up (so to speak) a cloud of lofty, rhetorically impressive, and thoroughly meaningless words until his little "time's up" light comes on.
Although frankly, we think that light came on almost four years ago.
