  11. It's not like patriarchy is America's future, but we can't underestimate the loss of that myth as our politicians try to seduce us.

  12. In US politics, it's like Dad is just yelling conspiracy theories at Jeopardy while Mom is trying to figure out how to do an oil change.

  13. We've got a mental frame for that, too: most of us have seen Dad get liquored up at some point in life. But then the bender goes too long.

  14. The maternal side has been increasingly deaf, standoffish, while the paternal side is, frankly, drunk and crazy, ranting at squirrels.

  15. In reality, we're just watching a single system play both sides of our parental mythologies. But that's been rupturing of late.

  16. One party sets up on the maternal, nurturing side of our brains, the other on the paternal, firm, scolding side. We think we're choosing.

  17. Two parties carrying a frequently similar strategic bent (mass incarceration, outsourcing, Fed policy) capture voters through framing.

  18. America maintains a moronic two-party system, mostly through procedural winner-take-all rules, but through a binary Mommy-Daddy framework.

  19. Watching the political horserace, both sides, I increasingly see America as a patriarchy with no father figure. We thus feel adrift.

  20. America's conservatives have no Nixon, and for that matter probably wouldn't welcome a Reagan, who would be a former-unionist RINO.
