Why not make America just like every decrepit urban center choking on debt while worrying about Global Warming? Why not make it like CNN, a formerly innovative news network, now in third place, but determined to put a good face on it by pretending nothing is wrong? The obvious answer is because it won’t work, but how do you explain that to people who have already failed and who are trying to cover it up? How do you explain it to people who have destroyed the American economy but hope that if they yell loudly enough about all sorts of things, no one will realize it?
So what’s the worst that could happen? President Piers Morgan?
