Is social media really changing what is politically possible? I hope so.

    It has already done so – we just need to keep evolving the proper use. I wish people were as outraged at the dysfunction in Washington as they are about abortion or gun control.

    Agreedto all points above.

    Fortunately/unfortunately, the relative comfort in which most Americans live or believe they live leaves us with the “luxury” of not caring too much about politics. This compounds, or is compounded by (I can’t tell which, if it even matters) the fact that not too much changes with each election. At least not immediately enough for everyone to get very involved with politics.

    Generally it seems that no one cares because nothing changes, so nothing changes because no one cares. I do hope that ease of access to information changes this, but first people need to understand what constitutes accurate information and what constitutes opinion or outright lies.

    Political Irony is, in all honesty, a great example of how a responsible blogger or even journalist should specify where the lines between facts and opinion (and just funny stuff) are.
