Welcome to Reality Show America

A new Andrew Bacevich at American Empire.

In contemporary America, celebrity confers authority. Mere credentials or qualifications have become an afterthought. How else to explain the host of a "reality" TV show instantly qualifying as a serious contender for high office?

It's not as optimistic as I'd normally like. But then, American Empire doesn't do optimism well.
