You must see "Weeds".

You all must view the new Showtime comedy “Weeds”(Mon. 10pm SHOW). It is simply the best and most realistic social satire of post-911-american-culture; without saying anything overtly political about the era. They hit the nail on the head in so many ways. “Weeds” gives us explicit depiction of exactly how filthy our childrens’ sex lives are, and that many of us (particularly the prudes) should not be surprised. It does this in a no-holds-barred sort of way that is breathtaking. They really should have called the show “hypocrites make lousy parents, but better than most.” Everyone is a hypocrite: a nasty right-wing hypocrite or a negligent left wing hypocrite. Meanwhile, society unravels by the seams.

This is exactly the kind of reality-based tv programming we will need to deprogram the red-state-zombies when we eventually take power again. We need to spend a fuck of a lot more on the arts!

Don't get mean "filthy" sarcastically, I assume.

Also, if everyone's a hypocrite of even valence, doesn't that fit into the he said-she said style of reportage in this country? I actually think you can determine levels of hypocrisy, and levels of the outcomes of hypocritical behavior...

I won't say anything about the red-state zombies we need to reprogram. I don't think that'll work.
