Some prominent folks in the U.S. media are falling all over themselves for Prince William-Kate Middleton news this week in advance of the Royal Wedding.
Barbara Walters, for one, did a special the other day—or so we hear. (We couldn't bear to watch.)
We hate to be petty colonials, but isn't this a whole of hoopla about not very much. Or, more bluntly, why should we care about the Royal Family?
As MSNBC host Lawrence O'Donnell said last week, didn't we wage a revolution to get away from these folks?
Yes, we did.
