Mediate points out that the the shock moment on CBS News this morning may not have been so much the sudden use of an expletive by author Edmund Morris, as much as what he said right after that:
I see an insular people who are insensitive to foreign sensibilities, who are lazy, obese, complacent and increasingly perplexed as to why [Americans] are losing our place in the world to people who are more dynamic than us and more disciplined.
Wow tell us how you really feel Morris. Maybe if America gave him a sequel to My Cousin Vinny he would be happier with our country? What is sad though is that after hearing such a controversial statement, Schieffer suggests that it’s a good place to take a break. Really, just when the conversation was getting interesting?
