We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
I believe that Pollack was highlighting the lack of vetting during the Obama run for President (noted by Ogletree in the tape and Hillary Clinton many times).
The coverage by CNN only proved his point. Seriously, if you weren't appalled by O'Brien's attack on Pollack for not agreeing with her version of "critical race theory" and her constant interruptions of his answers, then forgetaboutit. And Jake Thomas turning it into a discussion of Pollack's racism and the KKK? Only Amy Thomas seemed to understand the point: candidates should be vetted.
Obama was not -- not for either of his senate runs in Illinois, nor for his presidential run.
The larger and more penetrating narrative remains in (though I've long grown tired of the term) MSM hands. So, no matter the value or non-value of this video to a societal understanding it will make no difference in the big picture.
I'm, in a strange manner, reminded of "Clockwork Orange". Where the Ludovico technique was perceived as appropriate therapy. Though I think, in the current instance of our cultural discombobulation it would ultimately make no difference. We seem married to some sort of meltdown, with even the winner a loser.
