Good Op Ed By Frank Rich

This piece by Frank Rich captures a number of points I had planned to blog on but probably won't bother. Briefly, he discusses the incredible disconnect between the perceptions of the pundits and what is actually happening, and how the GOP's superior connections with the cable pundits (not just on Fox) and with the few remaining Washington beat reporters that allows them to make their narrative dominant has now become a trap. although Rich does not compare them with Talosians, I think there is a parallel, particularly the line about "But they found it's a trap...
like a narcotic, because when dreams become more important than reality, you give up travel, building, creating. You even forget how to repair the machines left behind by your ancestors. You just sit, living and reliving other lives left behind in the thought record."
