Full services to resume: We're hurrying back to our sprawling campus on this less-than-super Tuesday.
Full services will resume tomorrow. For today, we only have questions, most of which revolve around Charles Blow's recent New York Times column and Josh Marshall's reaction to same.
Does Marshall really think Blow's column was "a very good piece?" Does he really feel he has to apologize for "sounding like a middle-aged man lecturing the younger generation about not knowing how it was?"
Here's another question:
Does anyone think it really makes sense to do politics the way we seem to do now—by grabbing single comments from 1996 and using them as the basis for our evaluations of candidates?
Our political discourse has completely collapsed; we're living in a Babel. As Blow says, a generation of "leaders" has badly failed us. It just hasn't happened in the way Blow describes.
We'll return to full services tomorrow; we'll probably start with Marshall's response to Blow's column. But on this less-than-super Tuesday, we're living in a full-blown Babel, where very few statements make sense.
