The other Conway speaks: We spent the bulk of the day watching the bulk of the hearings. We still haven't seen the whole thing or had a chance to review certain things which were said.
Adding to the excitement, George Conway appeared today as part of MSNBC's standard Panel of The Like-Minded. At New York magazine, this early comment by Conway was being featured as of 9:37 A.M.:
“I don’t frankly want to be on television, I just don’t get why people can’t see this and why people are refusing to see this. It’s appalling to me."We're always struck by commentators who make this type of comment.
The ability to "get why people see things" the way they do is the essence of social and political intelligence. We're always amused when people treat their inability to understand the viewpoints of others as a mark of their ultimate wisdom.
We're in favor of "getting" the viewpoints of others. It's the way large societies work!
You can't understand the way people think? Citizen, fair enough! But if you can't understand such things, what are you doing on television?
