It's a strange world.

While reading a post on Wired about the history of TV, I saw this photo-



It's Al Franken, with a transmitter mounted to his head. This man will likely be walking the halls of the US Capitol in a few short months as the junior senator from Minnesota. The same state that elected a former pro wrestler as Governor.

California elected a guy who once said weightlifting "feels like cumming". Twice.

I don't know what to believe anymore.

I'm actually fairly sure I'd rather have Al Franken in office than Norm Coleman. This is not an informed decision, as much as it is my desire to see just what Stuart Smalley plans to do in Washington.

I haven't seen Idiocracy, and have no desire to see it. However, from what I know about the movie, I think it may be less of a comedy and more of a warning of things to come.

I feel numb.
