WE’RE IN LOVE WITH REDNECKS

October 21st, 2012 · No Comments · Social Commentary

I had put it down in my notepad – rednecks that is. What is our fascination with people in the rural south?

Actually it goes back a little further and a little deeper than that. I like many of you who are reading this are appalled by reality TV. Just search this blog for keywords “Mob Wives, Jersey Shore, Brooklyn 11223 and on and on.

The real life car crashes we can’t can’t take our eyes off of. In fact so many have come and gone I can’t even remember all the shows I’ve bemoaned.

And now – there’s Honey Boo Boo, whom I am just as likely to forget a year from now.

I’m wondering though – what will Honey Boo Boo be doing when she’s lost that chubby kiddo appeal and is say 14? Anyone care to way in on that?

Here’s the CBS Sunday Morning segment on “Rednecks”.
