“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

What It Feels Like Over Here Right Now

Josh Marshall nails it. Some of us were always aware that timing was essential to politics, just as it is with thought and with comedy, and very likely for the same reasons. I've been having these conversation with Jón Gnarr about it, Jón being a fantastic playwright and fantastic comedian, and the erstwhile fantastic mayor of Reykjavik who is now making a comedy series about being the mayor of Reykjavik...

So some of us were less hysterical these last few years than the Huffington hand wringers. That part hasn't been much fun.
