I'll be interested to see if Luis Guttierez comes up in this list or if his retirement was strategic for greater aspirations

i think it has more to do with the closed-in nature of elite politics and the way it creates a huge gap between how elites view politics and how the general public does. any random voter could tell you that pawlenty was an idiot but his bland vapidness is very appealing to a certain type of political insider who mistakes bland vapidness with in substance.

this dude is just a professor at a small university but he desperately wants to be a political insider and he's very much a "sir, SIR, SIR!!!!" guy on twitter. i think most voters are considerably smarter than he is.

Not that that's not completely inappropriate, but the "distorted and sensationalized versions of this story" bit means there's more to it right
