Olympic Shadenfreude

02Oct09

I never really had a convincing contemporary example of schadenfreude to go off of, until today, when many conservative fringe-types jumped for glee and wore glad expressions over the news today that America had lost it’s bid for the Olympics.

OK OK. I will admit that there were many many times in which I would have been very glad to have seen Bush get beaned by a shoe or enjoy the spectacle of seeing Cheny’s smirk cause a singularity in his face and implode inward, but never even in my wildest dreams would I have shown glee over an injury or hope for the ruination of the country in anyway. This is a trend toward a divide that’s starting to get reckless.

It’s time that we all take a collective step back and step away from the kool-aid.
