The good old days

Once upon a time, you'd have to launch a coupla Cruise missiles, invade a sovereign state, or assassinate a foreign leader if you wanted to distract the country from your administration's pisspoor performance. How silly past presidents must feel knowing that now the CIA has only to abduct innocent, vacationing white women or let loose a coupla sharks in coastal waters to distract the public for months on end. Wagging the dog is so ridiculously easy now. Does it worry anyone else? I mean, our government is getting more powerful, and it's simultaneously becoming easier to manipulate the public. Yeah. Bad, bad convergence.
