Seriously?

Why is a red cup a hit when hyper-patriot Toby Keith sings about it and blasphemy when Starbucks serves coffee in it?

This is so much a rich white person's "problem" that it is offensive -- even to those of us who may be rich white people -- that someone who is running for president should take the time to come up with a strategy addressing it while children go to bed hungry in this country, the elderly barely manage to pay for their prescriptions and ... well, that list just goes on and on.

There. I said it and I meant it.

It's shifting the focus from what's really important to a "cup."

I read somewhere or other earlier today: this is calculated misdirection; what don't they want us to notice?

Raven,
They don't want us to notice that the candidates all have, like the emperor, no clothes. So they hide their nakedness behind rants and bluster, sadly with the collusion of many in the media.

For the most recent book parade one of my sons went as the Emperor in has new clothes. He wore boxers, a singlet and a cardboard crown.
