The End of America as We Knew It
- Weâ€™re finally done. No more debates, no more speeches, no more ads, no more polls. Now youâ€”you Americansâ€”will vote (or not) and this long, national nightmare will finally be over.Itâ€™s been an ugly trudge from the midterms to now. Die-hard American politicosâ€”the ones who were looking forward to a good fight full of big ideasâ€”must be really bummed out. Mark Shields and David Brooks are, and theyâ€™re generally the nicest guys in the business. Theyâ€™re both discouraged by the smallness, the small-mindedness of both of these presidential campaigns. And theyâ€™re right.
