Matt Taibbi, whom I usually like, has caught the bug of wounded narcissism and declared that this is the most important election in the Democratic party history.
It’s, of course, the exact opposite. The office of the presidency – as well as any political office – is growing less and less relevant. That’s precisely why the candidates aren’t taking the election very seriously.
We should all relax and enjoy the show. Except for those of us who are narcissistically wounded and can’t abide the idea that they aren’t bearing the burden of enormous historical responsibility to save the galaxy with their tweets.
