PUMAs are starting to bore the shit out of me. Reading more than two sentences of their tiresome rants seems like a chore these days. They’ve become so predictable — someone could write a program that would factor in common headline terms and spit out pro forma screeds that would be indistiguishable from the real thing.
In fact, maybe someone has done just that, and the Paid PUMA Queen (PPQ) skipped off to Monaco with the loot contributed by J4H and the other suckers. That would explain why the PPQ is able to simultaneously hold so many contradictory opinions, e.g., Krugman is right — Obama is not addressing the economic crisis boldly enough! And OMFG, Obama is intalling a socialist system by intervening in the economy!
An automatic rant generation program wouldn’t necessarily catch the lapses in logic. But neither would a stupid person who has no fucking clue what she’s talking about but an economic imperative to gin up outrage several times a day. Occam’s Razor would tend toward the latter. But either way, I’m finding it tedious. How ’bout you?
