Another brief, bleated note, this time about “How Politics Made Elizabeth Warren Dull And Less Electable.”
Longtime readers of this tiny sideblog know I believe that the mass audience generally prefers discussing people > events > ideas. Accordingly, while this piece is nominally about Warren, she also serves as a peg to discuss the difference between orthodox and heterodox candidates.
For a more literal account of how Warren became a dull, orthodox leftie, read Peter Suderman at Reason. It’s an in-depth look at a point I merely touch upon: the idea that Warren’s wonkery is not particularly well-founded.
