On the abysmal clown show that is now American “politics”—a huge distraction from what’s really going on

What’s coming at us will arrive regardless of whichever frontperson sits in the Oval Office (though I could be wrong, and hope I am).

In any case, let’s give this sideshow the attention it deserves, but always think beyond this year’s pro wrestling match (or circus, as Ed Curtin calls it here), in the hope that We the People make it through this year, and find some way to bridge the Great Divide that’s only weakened us, so we can work toward having real elections by and by, whose outcomes really would reflect the will of the electorate, and those thus actually elected work for us, and not for those above.

And if that doesn’t work, we’ll figure out what will.
