We’re all happily pointing and laughing at the President’s absurdities over the past week: crowd sizes, press secretary harrumphing, twitter ejaculations. We’re patting each other on the back for the feel-good march we participated in over the weekend.
The real work’s being done in the Congress. What have they been up to this last week? What bills have come out of committee ready for vote without a reading? What policy has been made, but not announced?
This is misdirection, not entertainment. We’re not winning here, people. Let’s pay attention.
