The essence of politics

Washington, DC

I know I said I wasn’t going to talk politics this election year, but I think it’s early enough for me to ask for an exemption on this one:

…the overriding impression is that Ed Miliband’s Labour don’t know what they’re doing. And while the other lot don’t know what they’re doing, and in a far more worrying way, they manage to go about not knowing it with considerably more finesse.

Marina Hyde is talking British politics, but the same applies to American politics. Neither party has a clue, but their survival relies upon being the most successful at pretending they do. Show business for ugly people, indeed.

Sadly, most of the people reading this will believe that it all matters and that politics is important. Please just consider the possibility that it doesn’t and it’s not.
