And I Thought Things Couldn't Get Any Stupider

Beyonce's new record is awful and obnoxious.

Of course a lot of her previous work was awful and obnoxious, but apparently some dolts took her bubblegum pop song "Single Ladies" as some kind of Empowering Manifesto, rather than the silly O Network bumper theme it was, and now they're all butthurt she's saying "bow down bitches" or whatever.

But this will still come as a shock to long-term Beyoncé fans. It seems that overnight we’ve been transformed from Beyoncé’s beloved single ladies, independent women and survivors, into her bitches. From Beyoncé singing, “all the women, independent, throw your hands up at me” to “bow down bitches” a change is underway, and it leaves a bitter taste in the mouth.

Rush Limbaugh noticed how very stupid this all is and made a prediction.

RUSH: So I'm telling you, folks, we're dealing in a genuine low-information universe. It's perhaps worse than we even know. I was talking to a friend about this event this morning, and I came to a conclusion. I've mentioned on this program a number of times that we've exhausted all of our persuasive attempts, other than a concerted TV ad campaign.

We've exhausted every bit of persuasive talent that we have. We own talk radio, and Fox News for the most part. We've done everything we can, and yet no impact. So we've all been waiting for an event. And when I've said this, people have assumed I meant a hurricane or a tornado, some sort of natural disaster, a God event. No, no, no. I don't mean that. I'm talking about "event" in politics. Let me tell you what I think it's gonna be. It'll be something that will wake people up about Obama.

It isn't gonna be anything serious. It isn't gonna be anything substantive. Something like this is gonna happen: Obama is gonna be talking to somebody on open mike, and he's gonna diss Justin Timberlake's latest CD, and the country is gonna get outraged, and they'll turn on Obama. See, it's gonna be something like that, or he'll diss Beyonce.

Well apparently it's already the Hot New Thing to diss Justin Timberlake's latest CD (he's like soooo over now, Serious You Guys), but I take his point.

The world is collectively embracing Dumb. Stupid, shallow, and puerile. Dumb is easy and easy is Holy.

It will work out exactly the way you think it will.

More Empowerment: I always thought this was a good bubblegum pop song, but empowering? Beyonce just seems to do "gangster"-style baiting and self-promotion from a girly-girl point of view.

I can't see how any adult could take any of this seriously.
