Re: The Simple Life

I didn’t get around to posting this yesterday and I just assumed someone else would’ve by now. Did no one else catch this typically bitchy aside in Tom Shales review of “The Simple Life” yesterday:

“Maybe if the show encouraged more hatred of the rich, who are having so much fun right now (as they usually do during Republican administrations) while the rest of us just hope to cope, it might be worth watching and worth having been made.”

Um, Tom. If you spent a little less time maintaining that oh-so-natural blond look on your column photo and a bit more reading about the corporate scandals, you might have learned that most of them occurred during the last Democratic administration and have been prosecuted during a Republican one. But I understand how hard it is to keep up with the news when you’re so busy “coping” in these trying times.
