So it's been a full week since we were supposed to get het up over four assholes in a bar allegedly bitching loudly about politics.
First, have you ever been in a bar? Because if you are a reporter and you have never observed humans interacting with other humans and alcohol, let me give you s short primer. Park a stool near the back of any of a million bars in any of a hundred thousand American cities and towns any night of the week (especially after a long, shitty day at the office) and you will see the entire panoply of human emotion from grandiose affection for every living thing to bellicose rage against every living thing play itself out over again over again, every hour on the hour.
Or you could just listen to Leonard Cohen:
Second, hey, how about that follow up?
@GN192 yes. It's been frustratingly slow
