I Swear to God, This Country...

Longer post with more about Tibet and the self-immolations is in the works, but glancing at the WaPo home page and seeing these three stories just blew my mind:

1. "Panel: Pepper-spraying at UC Davis was wrong"
OH MY GOD YOU DON'T SAY! THERE IS SOME EINSTEIN-LEVEL GENIUS SHIT GOING ON HERE. WHO CONVENED THIS PANEL OF KEEN INTELLECTS? WHY DO WE NEED A PANEL TO TELL US THAT A DUDE CALMLY PEPPER-SPRAYING STATIONARY PROTESTERS IN THE FACE WAS WRONG? HOW IS THIS A HEADLINE AND NOT JUST AN OBVIOUS THING THAT LITERALLY EVERYONE IN THE COUNTRY SHOULD HAVE REALIZED WITHIN A SECOND OF SEEING OR HEARING ABOUT IT? I SWEAR TO GOD, THIS COUNTRY.

2. "George Zimmerman to be charged in Trayvon Martin shooting, official says"
WAIT HOLD ON THE GUY WHO SHOT A TEENAGER WHOSE ONLY CRIME WAS ENJOYING SKITTLES A LITTLE BIT TOO MUCH IS GOING TO BE CHARGED? WHERE DID THIS COME FROM? IS THIS TO IMPLY THAT SHOOTING RANDOM PEOPLE IS ACTUALLY A CRIME IN AMERICA? OH IT IS? OK SO AFTER WEEKS OF CONTROVERSY THE GUY IS ACTUALLY GOING TO BE CHARGED? AND THIS IS BANNER-LEVEL NEWS? I SWEAR TO GOD, THIS COUNTRY.

3. "Rep. Allen West says many Democrats in Congress are Communists"
I SWEAR TO GOD, THIS COUNTRY.
