Punditocracy

E Pluribus Unum versus .... (Punditocracy .... that which forms opinions in the low information consumers of news & internet bloggery) Pundits pretend they know. Pundits pretend they can control via their megaphones, twitterings & facebooks. They only show up on regular & cable news & slither away when they are surprised as so-called experts & unmasked & unclothed as having been wrong!
The Pundit hath no clothes!
I propose this ancient Greecian statue found in wikipedia. I adopt it as the symbol of Punditocracy (see the below) . I code-name him DickJob  or #dickjob Originally the statue in Wikipedia was associated with the New Comedy of Ancient Greece.

Sorry I deleted one of two which looked like a duplicate & it deleted both of them.
What I got from the residue in my brain is you are asking another why question.  

It is what it is!


Attempts to second guess what it is merely fruitless.
(via Wikipedia here) Ancient, Middle & New Comedy.
Dante used the comedy word in his title The Divine Comedy.
I don't take any of our political comments much beyond their amusement-joke factor

The output of a #dickjob is called #Dickjobbery; being opinions & bullshit aimed without consulting & interviewing personally the politician & having that conversation recorded as well from both or every side.

I do not care is what is left when your ears stop hearing; your eyes stop reading and all that is left is your brain recycling your own point of view. Good luck with that.

which actually is the point
tu quoque?

i don't think this particular exchange is tu qoque.  But this kind of interchange is what we get when "[our] ears stop hearing; [our] eyes stop reading and all that is left is [our] brain[s] recycling [our] own point of view".  Which is pretty much what happened in this video.

alternatively we could become sensitive and conscious of otherness impinging on our internal worlds.
Thanks, you illustrated my point.

Some people who listen to pundts also become pundits like a communicative disease.

some other people call those interactions consciousness. 

my straight man to your mirth. 


... far from consciousness - more like you are following the crowd - sheepishly! ()
& here is some sheepish mirth:
