I went to a debate and

the Festival of Banality broke out!

The republic is in serious trouble. The economy is collapsing, inflation is on the rise, we are despised throughout the world and caught in a nightmarish bungled occupation, our infrastructure is crumbling and higher education is beyond the reach of many. From that insipid disaster last night, you might well believe that America's greatest problems are caused by a retired minister, a University of Illinois at Chicago education professor and, of course, bitterness.

We do get the country we deserve.
