American politics

I think I may, after living in the US for fifteen years, be starting to understand the American political system. I had always thought that politics was fairly serious business, but when you look for real ‘news’ on the TV here you end up watching people like Jon Stewart and Bill Maher. But that can’t be right, they’re comedians aren’t they?

But then you look at actual ‘News’ programs on TV and realize that the vast majority of politicians are joking too. They must be. No sane person could actually believe some of the nonsense that comes out of their mouths. So now it all makes perfect sense to me. It’s all a big fucking joke.
