On Election Coverage

I don't discuss the election much because I have been around too long. It is a well known cycle, endlessly repeating itself. The electorate realizes the party in power is incapable of governing, so it votes the other party into power, only to rediscover that it also is incapable of governing. Rinse and repeat.

By definition, a political party is incapable of governing because governance and maintaining itself in power are incompatible goals. Political parties are not concerned with governance. Their goal is to keep themselves in power, and inevitably that goal becomes so transparent as to be self defeating.
