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.
