Note to Stanley Fish's column today in the NYTs RE Sarah Palin:

The Power culture runs on Logos Unchained; all the buildings are square, all the people in pants; it is all that is allowed - Eros is in exile. Michael Jackson is Power's vision of Eros Incarnate; a cryptic caricature; Power's imagining of Eros and a substitute for the real thing. A culture has never been so out of equilibrium and in danger of breakage. The sudden appearance of Woman in Red Dress/True Eros – as in "The Matrix" – almost cracks it in two.
