Americans running for the office of the President of the United States do two things: point and wave.
No one really knows whom they point to. Maybe it’s a vestige from a past when the country did not have 300 million people. Maybe it’s TVs gift to America. Whatever the case, one can safely say, the road to the White House runs through points. The tortured POW though, has broken arms and can’t point.
Why are we watching an unequal race?
 — This is how one sounds profound without even trying.
