I caught like five minutes of Terry McAuliffe on Tim Russert yesterday as I was packing up in San Fran.
It’s all just automatic lying, all the time, and everyone is perfectly happy to play along. Disgusting. I don’t know what I’d do if I thought that ultimately, what I make of my life somehow necessitates a daily dose of the bullshit they’re peddling.
I don’t think the nightmarish disaster that is national politics will in any way be solved until people lose interest in the spectacle, beyond derisive ridicule and moral condemnation for the whole lot of it, without distinction or equivocation.
