But that dates back to Chevy Chase on SNL in 1975 (Gerald Ford, anyone?) and before.  People in general are just more pissed off than ever, because they believe whatever the lie of the day is.

If you're going to blame anything, blame the 800 TV channels and the billion websites that make their $ based on their own cockamamie political theory.  It's like the cretins who put their shows on Public Access cable have taken over the goddamn world.
