Things Have to Become Horrible Before Molds Are Broken

No choice.

There was no choice but…

Barack Obama.

There was no choice but…

Jeremy Lin.

I remember an Onion Article titled “Nation Finally Shitty Enough to Make Social Progress” at around the time Barack Obama was elected.  The Onion is a satirical publication, but sometimes there’s a lot of truth in what they write.

Not taking away from Barack’s talent as a speaker and universal appeal, but I do wonder if he’d been able to break the mold as President if the situation in our country wasn’t what it was and arguably still is:  a gigantic, faltering mess. There wasn’t a good alternative and so part of the vote went to Barack because there was no other choice.

In the world of professional basketball, the New York Knicks were in a situation that wasn’t good.  Before what is now known as Lin-Sanity, the Knicks had a losing record and were a gigantic, faltering mess.  They didn’t have any good alternative to and so the coach of the Knicks had no other choice but.
