Drama Queens at a Mall
I love you, Americans, but you are such drama queens. The blood-thirsty authoritarian despot in question can’t even stop an investigation into his own campaign. He’s also running behind his predecessors in terms of bombing out countries and starting wars.
But who cares about these insignificant details when it’s all about a jaded consumer needing to feel like a heroic resistance fighter who bravely takes on a terrifying, blood-thirsty despot.
Politics, for such people, is a huge mall where they go to buy experiences that will thrill and entertain them. If Hillary had won, we’d be hearing that she is a blood-thirsty despot right now. Not from this consumer, of course, but from some other one. It doesn’t matter because they are as interchangeable as their infantile fantasies of greatness.
