This man is paid millions of dollars a year to opine about politics:
Yes, clearly what the Democratic ticket needs is someone who favors massive upper-class tax cuts who is a fanatical opponent of reproductive freedom. After all, he sort of sounds like a nice guy compared to Donald Trump and Ted Cruz! Really hard to see any flaws in this plan.
The fact that the theater critic school of political journalism survived 2000 says a lot about the norms of American political journalism, none of which is good.
