The history of misdirected indignation

Rage is all the rage, in the 90s '00s, rage is money
The righteous fury of a baby who won't share his toys
It's so easy to climb those charts
It's so easy to win those votes
Selling pointless, phony, blind, cheap, stupid powerless anger!
X-tal, "A Lemon Song" (1996)

Apparently, things have not really changed all that much. Adlai Stevenson knew how to handle these cretins back in the Sixties. Today's politicians could learn a thing or two from him.

Then there's the Barney Frank approach, which is fairly awesome in its own right. Arguing with a dining room table, indeed.
