Twerking Our Way to Nowhere

I don’t know if I can express my disapproval over a performance that made Rush Limbaugh so livid with rage.“It was just this side on on-stage pornography,” the Viagra user who liked even looser women in the Dominican Republic. “It was pure, unadulterated rot.”

Actually, it was pure nothing. I saw the full number on YouTube before the high sheriffs of Copyrightdom had it removed. It was jerky, and sexy more in its intent than its execution.

But I’ll bet that Pat Robertson was mightily aroused to wrath, and we’ll be hearing some priceless lines from the right-wing Christian doomsayer-elect within the next day or so.

I frankly don’t care if Miley Cyrus dances full-on naked on the stage. It’s been done  before, though not by Hannah Montana,.and it will be done again.

In the meantime, more serious issues await our consideration: We are about to add to the mess in Syria. The Stock Market is taking a dive in anticipation of same. Washington continues to be more divided than a Civil War battlefield, with belligerent threats from the Republicans made worse by their suspicion that they are about to be regarded as a very bad episode in our country’s history.
