It's a bit scary when one must go to moderately left British press (which is to say "loony left" if it were here) to get incisive reporting on American politics. The Guardian has successfully grasped something that the American press has not: American politics has become more a matter of celebrity than of substance.

   Really now. Political commentary of any value in a magazine associated, even in the past, with Tina Brown?
