Poll: Bullshit Is Most Important Issue For 2008 Voters

So far my favorite is the Onion’s War for the Whitehouse coverage of all the presidential bullshit going on. Bullshit is no laughing matter. The very scholarly book On Bullshit lets us know how serious it is.

One of the most salient features of our culture is that there is so much bullshit. Everyone knows this. Each of us contributes his share. But we tend to take the situation for granted. Most people are rather confident of their ability to recognize bullshit and to avoid being taken in by it. So the phenomenon has not aroused much deliberate concern. We have no clear understanding of what bullshit is, why there is so much of it, or what functions it serves. And we lack a conscientiously developed appreciation of what it means to us. In other words, as Harry Frankfurt writes, “we have no theory.”

Because you know “bullshit is the deciding factor in most elections”. We need another book to explain political bullshit. How about “On Political Bullshit”?

Recently I’ve gone crazy with the web video embeds on this blog. Let me know if the site is loading slow.
