Over the past few years, especially during the rigorous presidential election season, my tribunal education on American politics has been colored by some terrific voices. Foremost among them is the eloquent, bright and intensely dignified Zbigniew Brzezinski. He gave firm contour to Obama's Americanness, and helped usher out the bellicose age of unchecked accusatory politics and corporate media laziness. He has been vigilant, and his recent comeuppance sammich made special for Joe "Fuck" Scarborough was especially gratifying.
May the age of W. era rationalization never find its traction. Happy New Year Everybody!
