Gebibis on a Cheese sandwich (thank you Nemisis)
Cursing through TD, I saw this and realized I did not even know Chris Hedges was gone? It is sort of like Hedges has been replaced by a guy named Bob!
I was gone last week and nobody gave a shit!

That the latest Oval Office occupant is also (like his predecessor, and his, and his, and his) just going through the motions of going-through-the-motions, is getting more difficult to deny everyday, even for such recently-enthralled disciples as Mr. Robinson here. Yet no one among them seems eager to “dig” into the “truth” of exactly why that’s true.
Could it be that the die is cast, it’s come-up “craps,” and there’s not a damned thing anybody, even the supposedly “most-powerful-man-in-the-world,” can do about it? So he hits his marks and speaks his lines on-cue (just as they’ve all been doing all-along), because even with the “Global” theater burning-down around the empire, “the bloody show” must go on.
“....first as tragedy, then as farce.”

@NYCartist, would you also ask Hitchens to drop his “thing” about religion?

He has no “thing” about atheism, but about fundamentalism.

I hope he gets over his “thing” about atheists.

Great to see Chris is going to give us another gem soon!
I hope he touches on a lot of the topics he’s been covering here like the Greek riots and global warming.
