Some relatively light news
I wanted this to be something less onerous than what I said yesterday about Biden and Ukraine.
Now, the People's Party was starting to look kind of sketchy about a year ago. But Cornel West is fun, and it's quite clear that the fundamental problem of American politics is the complete atrophy of political imagination, and that another "someone running for President" could contribute to an overhaul of our pitifully inadequate political imaginary here in the US. Of course, this overhaul would have to start by Cornel West being someone more than the Cornel West of the past, and more specifically that Cornel West's campaign would have to be something more than West's pursuance of his own habits as driven by his self-image.
But, as I've suggested before, let a thousand non-Joe-Bidens bloom.
