Fundraiser Day Three

Against vapidity, the Gods themselves contend in vain.

One of the things I've found in life is that politicians are a lot more sincere than us journalists. And we are more sincere than the people who read and watch us. The public is much more cynical, and that cynicism is stupid.

...As the left of the Democratic Party has gotten more orthodox--look at the Connecticut race--the right of the Republican Party has gotten less orthodox. They're less sure of themselves, they're more willing to be pragmatic, more desiring to win.

It never stops.

It never even slows down.

Not strictly, but there's a connotation of something done in the meantime with interlude where interval is just a period of time
