Hillary Clinton's Hunger Games Testimony in the Capitol
American politics as practiced in Washington today resembles the dystopian worlds described in such literary works as Animal Farm, 1984, and The Hunger Games more closely than the world in which our Founding Fathers lived when they wrote and ratified the Constitution. These fictional worlds in which "peace" is "war" and phrases like "the buck stops here" mean "I am not to blame" are more real today than history itself. And no Republican legislator in the Capitol yesterday chose to play the role of Patrick Henry, James Madison, Benjamin Franklin . . . or even Katniss Everdeen.
