Rush compares Paris Hilton to Global Warming

Posted on June 10, 2007. Filed under: entertainment, funny, humor, life, media, politics, radio, writing |

As of last Friday Rush compared the whole Paris Hilton ordeal to global warming in that the “drive by media” insists on feeding us escapist garbage in order to deter “us” from “real” issues.  So if global warming is an escapist endeavor what the hell is golf?  Come on Rush,  can’t you do better than that?

I wasn’t going to comment but I feel obligated.  The spin is doing what here?  A lot, actually.  This is a great move on Rush’s part.  Comparing a celebrity’s wrongdoings with a complex, controversial issue further removes his listeners away from real social problems that they don’t have to deal with.  Well, if I don’t have any say in what happens with Paris Hilton why the hell should I worry about polar bears and hail in July?

why is everyone worried about Paris Hilton? She is just as human as everyone else.

Yes, it’s like your post last week or whenever about feigning ignorance when it’s useful. If Hilton and global warming are somehow interchangable, he can similarly chide us for concerning ourselves with global warming because, after all, it’s just a circus. Good stuff, PortlandPrincess, and I’ll check back soon.
