The Schmendrick and the Politcs of Personal Destruction


Here's the schmedrick in all his glory

It’s well argued that the current sturm und drang between the two parties is nothing new, that since Jefferson and Hamilton started going at it the nation’s politics has been characterized by exaggeration, vituperation, scandal and coarseness. Yet listen to what members of Congress on both sides of the aisle say about Newt’s politics of personal personal destruction, and its aftermath, and it’s hard to not come away with the impression that something has been lost in the the polity in Washington. They don’t know each other. They don’t talk to each other. They don’t feel responsible to each other. And so they demonize each other.
