Howard Fineman's Advice to Obama "Play a Little More Basketball."
Fineman unwittingly confesses the absurdity not only of the American political process but also of media elites, like Fineman, who devote their careers to legitimizing that process:
Don’t try to drive a pickup truck. Leave that for the Scott Browns of the world. But you might want to play a little more basketball in, say, Indiana. That’s the “real America,” too, especially during March Madness. There is a serious point to be made: nobody has an exclusive claim to “the real America.”
