Reality TV

Maury Povich proved that nothing captures our attention more than the bizarre.

The Man Show, The View, Stephen Colbert, Kim Kardashian … Bizarre vision of culture

Racist, Traitor, Domestic Terrorist … Bizarre vision of civil discourse

Nattering nabobs of negativism, Deplorables, Irredeemables, Bitter people who cling to religion … Bizarre vision of We the People

Happy Birthday Mr. President … Bizarre vision of Camelot

Weapons of mass destruction, Nuclear mushroom-shaped clouds, United Nations dog and pony show, Shock and awe, Most-Wanted Iraqi playing cards, Mission Accomplished … Bizarre vision of National security

Hueys, B-52s, Napalm, Operation Rolling Thunder, 58,000+ names on The Wall … Bizarre vision of peace with honor

7-foot-high metal fence topped with razor wire and 25,000 armed National Guard troops surround the People’s House on Inauguration Day … Bizarre vision of government of the people, by the people, for the people

Politicians, pundits, and narcissists capture our attention.  We elect and re-elect them.  We pay them handsomely.  We empower them.  We place our lives and fortunes in their hands.  We let them raise our children with their values.

We live the definition of bizarre.  We live The Maury Povich Show.
