Another Sound-bite the Dust?

Another Sound-bite the Dust?

Are you ready?, are you ready for this?
Are you hanging on the edge of your seat?
Are you happy?, are you satisfied?
How long can you stand the heat?
Out of the doorway the bullets rip
To the sound of the beat
(Queen - Another One Bites the Dust)



from Crooks and Liars ;
What's a politician to do when they obviously can't run on their record of failure and incompetence?
Resort to fear and meaningless catch phrases, of course.


Sound Byte Politics
...Pretty soon, we should be able to get electoral politics down to a basic newspeak that contains perhaps 10 keywords: Dream, Fear, Hope, New, People, We, Change, America, Future, Together. Fishing exclusively from this tiny and stagnant pool of stock expressions, it ought to be possible to drive all thinking people away from the arena and leave matters in the gnarled but capable hands of the professional wordsmiths and manipulators.

from Family Guy episode "It Takes a Village Idiot, and I Married One"
Brian syas;
"Louis,undecided voters are the biggest idiots on the planet,try givin' short simple answer."
