Brand new bag.
Take away the Republicans' politics of resentment, of small town, "Real America" "us" VS. big city not-America "them" and you don't have a lot left. They might even have to start running campaigns on issues, issues that both real Americans and fake Americans care about. We might be seeing a new world opening up. How sad that it takes a comic to drag this out into plain view. I can think of no greater indictment of punditry than to point out Stewart and Colbert have been more substantive as "pundits" than any real pundits out there.
