America's mixed-up idea of important

September 3, 2013 

America sits on the brink of war, possibly World War III. Yet the most important news is Miley Cyrus' performance at the VMA. I'm glad we have our priorities straight.

She is another name on the long list of pathetic attention-starved young celebrities who have to shock. Those kind end up as a flash, a one-hit wonder, or dead by the age of 30.

I can see the news now: Russia sides with Syria. Launches nukes at the U.S. But first, another Miley/Kardashian/Lohan update.

Yep, gotta love it.
