It's that time again, when we take a soulless look at the American political landscape and judge it. If this were reality TV, we'd be dividing various political subjects into what goes onto "Rock of Love" and what goes to "More to Love." Both, of course, are death sentences.
Let's take a look at what's hot:
Health care. Yowza. This one's been out of the starting gate for months and has no signs of slowing down. Stay tuned for more frothing, repetitious arguments from both sides until the newest catastrophe occurs that takes our minds off this subject.
The Supreme Court. There's a new player in the courtroom, and she's not afraid to let her hair down and practice her dance moves! Everyone give a big D.C. welcome to Sonia Sotomayor. Then tune into the high court's antics about twice a year when they momentarily do something that isn't a snore fest.
What about all the subjects that are "not" hot? Here's a few:
Immigration. What? That's so 2006. Unless, of course, it relates to health care. Then we care about it. Otherwise, take your Minutemen hat and toy gun and go play cowboy somewhere else.
The complete destruction of socialism. We might have a dark horse here. Long in the domain of the late, great Sen. Eugene McCarthy and Ann Coulter, hating socialism is rapidly gaining strength, but again, only if it relates to health care.
In fact, nothing matters except endlessly talking about health care.
