One of the reasons for the success of Donald Trump: Ace of Spades quote regarding the republican congress:
I find it increasingly difficult to write about politics now, you may have noticed; it's because I can no longer even pretend to care which asshole is in which federal sinecure.
I think many people feel the way I do.
And if you want to entice the alienated back into the fold, you have to at least let us dream of the possibility of actual change.
That requires allowing us hope -- and not simply doubling-down on the current crop of failures and fainthearts we are obligated, sourly, to call our "leadership."
Hope is a silly illusion, but it is a necessary, sustaining silly illusion.
Faint heart never won fair lady, fellas. Nor have fainthearts ever contributed anything to society, except cowardice and inertia.
