The Problem with Politics Today

I have argued that we should do away with presidential primaries and return to smoke-filled rooms and conventions the outcome of which the outcome is not already  determined weeks before the convention opens. However, I had not realized that these sensible proposals, however helpful they may be in themselves, are inadequate. Then I saw this photo and attached caption which clearly illustrate what is missing from our political conventions: a really loud pipe organ. Seated at the controls is a lady who knows how to silence unruly delegates and blowhard orators. Happy Days Are Here Again. Let 'er rip.
