Someone Spent Time and Money Putting This Cutting Edge Story Together

Stay calm. I'm going to blow your mind here. Are you ready?

Are you sure?

Here we go.

When someone we don't like or who plays for the wrong team does something even if it's relatively innocuous, we're more likely to not agree with the action than if it was someone we do like or who is on our team.

Crazy, eh? Mind. Blown.

So, I'm sure glad to see some cutting edge journalism from CNN on things that are clearly The Most Important of Our Time, things like...what people think about Obama putting his feet on his desk. Really.

I'm very glad they didn't ask people about things like whether or not we should take military action in Syria, the vast data-mining of the NSA, the drone war without borders, locking up people for small amounts of drugs, or any of the other myriad trivial matters that our nation faces. Thank God CNN can resist the siren call of such trivialities and get to the essentials. "Hey, this guy occasionally puts his feet on his desk (you know, like nearly every other male ever who has ever sat at a desk). What do you think of that?"

Next up: Wolf Blitzer showing people (especially people who aren't in the same political party as the President) a picture of Obama and saying, "The President is breathing in this picture. What do you think about that?"
