15. Welcome To The "Scandal" Fatigue Game...

...a new version of that 90s show that became so tedious. The purpose is two-fold. First...to try to taint this administration as being inept and/or corrput with one "scandal" or poutrage after the next. Eventually the rushpublicans will find something to grab onto...a new "blue dress". Maybe they'll find a video of President Obama jaywalking...surely he's broken the law and this will be sufficient grounds for article of impeachment. Eventually the corporate media is so consumed with scandal fever that its all they'll talk about...making it all but impossible for the Obama administration to push for any meaningful legislation. Nullification is at play here.

The second game is to innoculate themselves from any future scandals. They'll tire us out from the non-stop investigation until their toady is elected. Then...you see the "get over it" attitude again. Ya know...any time a real scandal is uncovered, the media will rush to say how "aren't we tired of that...we went through this during the Obama years"...and thus illegal wars can be waged and the economy gutted. It's worked before...
