Quote of the day


In order to substantiate any opinions the reporter has, they consult with the political observer, who nods when briefed on the possibility that a game is about to be changed, and allows the writer or pundit to insert their beliefs in a story without fear of being reproached. The political observer usually dabbles in conventional wisdom, and offers little insight — having been stored in an undisclosed office space for so long. The general rule should be, if you can’t say anything without a political observer, it is better to say nothing at all.

– Jaime Fuller, “The Fix guide to understanding all the great political cliches
