Celebrity Worship vs. Political Activism

Why do people care so much about celebrities who don't care about them? Why don't people care more about politicians who can actually affect their lives?

Hat tip to Neal Boortz:
In the meantime ... the politicians smile. They know that as long as the American people are focused on Martha Stewart, or Kobe Bryant, or Michael Jackson, or Robert Blake, or any of the other big-deal celebrities in the news you are not focused on what they, they politicians, are doing to increase their power, to strengthen their control over your lives, and to destroy our Republic.

Wake up, people. Get involved. Know the issues.

Good luck with that. The press will become more attentive if our politicians start appearing in videos on MTV and VH1 ... wait ... do they still play music on those channels?
