Apathetic youth

Once again, Colbert hits the nail on the head. You’ve probably heard about the U of Florida guy getting tasered at a John Kerry event.

What bothered me the most about the situation wasn’t that Andrew Meyers got tasered (he was being annoying, which isn’t reason to be tasered anyway). What bothered me was how no one there thought it was a good deal. Colbert says it well in September 19’s “The Word.”

In Colbert’s generation, college students were active- taking over school administrations, protesting. Now, they sit back and blog on it. Sure, blogs can be used to instigate change, but not on the same level as protesting.

Check out the clip.
