Sure, I still get the itch.

For fifty years I’ve been astonished by the differences between what is and what it seems. Over and over again. I suppose people aren’t exactly wrong, really – we’re just preoccupied with superficialities and diversions.

So it is that, yes, we’ve got some high-profile conservative bigots mouthing the established Republican outlook with atypical clarity – and sure, the Democrats are serious when they argue over money.

All this is sort of refreshing, I guess. But the fact is, we’re still just talking about headlines, as if we’re in a democracy, when the only meaningful questions concern the unlikelihood of ever getting democracy back.
