Damn you, Anderson Cooper

Each day, I stumble into work, dreary eyed. I sustain myself with a frequent coffee breaks and sugar-laden snacks. My eyes are bloodshot. This is no way to live.

It didn’t used to be like this. I used to wake up refreshed and ready to take on the world. Now, the it’s as if I never really woke up. Each day is a blur and merges into the next.

What happened? I broke down and re-subscribed to cable. CNN slowly infiltrated my life. Only now it was worse. Now it was…HD.

I like news. I like analysis. But the deadly combination of news AND analysis peddled by Mr. Cooper is too much for me. Even though I’ve already read it all online, I feel compelled to see the talking heads repeat the information. Just when I am ready to turn it off, on comes David Gergen, Paul Begala, or even Bay Buchanan. I know what they are going to say. But I have to watch them say it anyway.

The worst part is that the whole debacle doesn’t even begin until 10PM.

At least this will all be over November 4.

Right?

RIGHT?
