Brunch with the populists

I long ago lost my appreciation for inaugurals (although I did like going to the Nixon Counter-Inaugural in – what, ’72?). The main reason is the overwhelming stench of Big Money. It strikes me as especially unseemly this year, when so many have been financially devastated.

But, as Charlie Pierce points out, you can’t get anywhere without money. Not just for inaugurations, but for the election campaigns.
