One of the Most Amusingly Truthful Things I Read This Year on Politcs

Robert J. Samuelson's Truth Serum on The Trail from The Washington Post:
"... Politics is mostly about immediate gratification -- about offering up convenient scapegoats and instant solutions for voters' complaints, even if the villains and promises are often false. We in the media bless this process by treating much of the self-serving rhetoric with undeserved seriousness. Is it any wonder that our genuine problems persist year after year and, in the end, foster public cynicism?"
