Out Of The Mouths Of Comic Book Writers…

So I was reading a Wired writeup of a graphic novel called Luna Park, and this quote from the writer jumped out at me as an excellent summing-up of where we’re at these days:

“I’m utterly depressed about our current political situation,” Baker said. “The Republicans have been completely overtaken by the far right, and turned into one of the great, lunatic parties in American history. The Democrats are completely feckless. President Obama seems to have all but disappeared. And beyond ideology, many of our elected representatives in both parties seem to have simply been bought off.”

(…)

“We’re on the verge of making potentially catastrophic decisions, or continuing our equally catastrophic drift,” Baker said. “The basic element of American optimism — that we can and will adapt to meet any crisis — has been destroyed.”

Nailed it.  Unfortunately.
