Reality Bites

Every once in a while, the stars align and hand me the perfect opporunity to resurrect an often overlooked column from the archives. Today, I've been given the rare chance to bring back two.

In January of last year, I posted a couple of articles focusing on a trend in this country: an unwillingness to accept reality, based on the belief that it can be altered on a whim.

The columns cited, as examples, both American Idol (which airs tonight on Fox), and an interview with Dick Cheney (who has just completed a frighteningly blithe one-on-one with ABC News).

Here they are:

(Reality Check, Part I: "I Can Do Anything I Want, and So Can You"/1.25.07)

(Reality Check, Part II: "I Find Your Lack of Faith Disturbing"/1.26.07)

Cheney's next plan for Iraq is to draw 'em into the shallow water and drown 'em...

I'll take the chance of the Secret Service coming and kicking down my door:

Cheney should be beaten into unconsciousness for that fucking comment.
