As captured in one magic sentence: Incredible? Astounding? Beyond all belief?
Which of these terms would you apply?
No one ever believes Cassandra. But the soul of a rapidly dying culture was captured this morning in just one magical sentence.
How emptied out are this nation’s elites? We’ll rest our case on this sentence:
“I think I speak for all of America when I say nothing that interesting happened with the vice-presidential candidates.”
Surely, you know who wrote those words. But don’t worry!
This next time this life-form appears on TV, Rachel will kiss her ass—hard.
Postscript: The liberal world won’t complain about this.
Just as the citizens of a mythical empire couldn’t see their emperor’s lack of clothes, the folk who devise the scripts for that world can’t see that their culture is dying.
Plus, they bow down to the gods of the guild. Complaining? It just isn’t done!
Also this: Attempting to hold back the deluge, the editors stated a different view:
"Thursday night’s vice-presidential debate was one of the best and meatiest political conversations in many years, showing that real differences on public policy can be discussed with fervor..."
Over their shoulders, the sun is setting, as we can see in that other reaction.
Over their shoulders, the sun is setting. The editors don't know that yet.
