My favorite columnist on the lackluster IN gubernatorial inauguration:
There is more to red-state hatred of government that just hatred of having that black guy in the White House. If other red states are anything like this one, it's just that government just doesn't do much. There is a vivid passage in this column in which Hammer describes how, after an underwhelming inaugural address, Governor Pence then goes indoors for a fancy meal while everyone else was literally left out in the cold. Then he goes on to muse that maybe it's better that way.
"The problem with internet quotes, especially political ones, is so many people assume them to be true without doing their own research and thinking for themselves instead of being so goddamned intellectually lazy." -George Washington
