Who wants to hear folks from This Town presenting boy-scoutish and girl-scoutish positions on Sunday morning? Not many, not in this age of the anti-hero. Here the media outlet Politico captures the current yawn.
Instead, we want to hear from and about complex highly flawed human beings who are similar to Don Draper, Walter White and Tony Soprano. We want to witness the confusion and the courage of a Peggy Olson who was born a few decades too early. And we want to hear from Carmela Soprano why she took the power and stayed.
There's not much of a market for plain-vanilla goodness. Those contending they are doing the right thing just can't resonate.
