Lewis Black appeared on the "Daily Show" last night to tackle the topic of "Anger in America." It seems every reporter, columnist, and blogger in America has strung together Joe Wilson, Serena Williams, and Kanye West and decided we as a culture are getting angrier and more boorish.
In fact, the town hall outbursts are getting angrier, but everything else is exactly the same. John McEnroe and Jimmy Connors both verbally abused every line judge they met, and Kanye has been doing this for years. But, as Black points out, who cares? Tennis and the VMAs don't define America, they don't even define Luxembourg.
The only thing that seems to bother Black about these incidents is the amount of money Joe Wilson has raised as a result of a single outburst.
