The thing is, what started out as satire now has a run for the money keeping up with reality. It is a theater of the absurd cross with reality TV with cardboard cut-outs given the breath of life. The amazing thing is that in this atmosphere, someone real will emerge, I only hope we can spot her (or him) in all the glare and bluster. This is the primordial stew out of which heroes arise. I am head of a school and I watch the kids every day because I know that among them, are the real leaders.
