Both the party apparatus and the leeches that bolster them are based upon selling and marketing, aka lies. It would be pretty naive to listen to an interview like that and not even have a thought about how the pundits and operatives of the Democratic side act. If people don't think these talking heads, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi don't lie to us, and themselves, then the pundits and associates have done their jobs.

In a real world, you'd have real journalists interviewing these people, looking for holes in their stories, and having all kinds of facts and figures to discredit them. In a real world, you'd have intelligent people discussing various ideas, statements and policies without regard to the party's opinion. You might even have some real-world discussion of what's working and what's not working.

Instead, you end up with the above, "These hucksters", not Our Hucksters with a big plural. It's all about marketing and verbal warfare, and they are selling it to you.
