The chatterers

“Today, of course, there is an army of chattering skulls, experts and commenters we see on TV and on-line. Unless you live in one of the guarded combines around Washington or in a swank building in Manhattan, you will never run into these people on the street. They live apart from the rest of us. That’s why they sound like grad students on an anthropology study. They peer out at us and then describe to each other what they think is happening. To them, we’re just talking monkeys in a game park.”

The Umman Manda

The Z-Man has a way of finding the central part of a thing and describing the thing in manner accurate and understandable.

I have long contended that the TV heads and other D.C. types talk only to each and pay no mind to those of us outside the circle.
