The fact that we have allowed the Media and Twitter to spend even one second of our time acknowledging that this woman, and the simple-minded man she and her committee have chosen to be her running mate, convinces me that we will follow any suggestion, any thought, any trail, however mindless, just to occupy our curiosity and keep us glued to our couches.
We want our schools reformed, just so long as we don’t have get up and go fix them. We want out streets cleared of rioters, looters, and vicious criminals, just so long as we don’t have to get up off the couch to go demand it.
Especially as long as we can watch the gripping drama of a criminally corrupt politician who may or may not be losing his mind, and a woman of color who isn’t, try to capture our imaginations.
We have met the enemy, and it is us. -Pogo
From where the sun now stands, I will speak no more of this tragi-comedy as it is scripted, until November 2, assuming that the play is still running on Broadway.
