Senator Marco Rubio gives a speech that sums up, in a few short minutes, much of the modern conservative agenda, and all the media cares about was his awkward reach for a water bottle. Perhaps he should have had his water closer, and simply said pardon me, but the fact that the media, and many commentators made a big deal out of it shows the simplicity of our political discourse. The speech itself was chock-a-block full of conservative talking points, all of which deserve serious scrutiny and analysis. But the sad reality is that almost no talking head left, right, or (supposedly) center, spend more than a minute on the substance of the speech. I would like to think that they are simply too busy, or perhaps simply too lazy, but after watching American news and politics for the last forty years of so, it is almost inescapable that the reality is that they are simply not smart enough to analyze it in a serious manner. That is a real problem.
