Here's Chris Matthews, signing off for the year with what might be more of an indictment of The Cult of the Presidency than he intended.

Catch that recitation of nowhere men making all their nowhere plans for nobody?

And the denunciation of the usual suspects "reciting in chorus just what they're supposed to say?"  Um, Chris, that pretty much describes Meet the Press most weekends, surely when Mrs Greenspan stage-managed all the Usual Democrats on Sunday, that's what it was.

The idea of politicians as people holding "positions of very little influence" who get by as "dull creatures of survival" in fact appeals, particularly after years of the Wise Experts breaking everything.

And "not going to take it any more" might mean the end of the conceit that Governing equates to More Expertise Intruded in Our Lives.  Bring it, I say.
