Sight Gag: The Absent Presence

Credit: M. Wuerker, Politico

Sight Gags” is our weekly nod to the ironic, satiric, parodic, and carnivalesque performances that are an important part of a vibrant democratic public culture.  These “gags” may not always be funny or represent a familiar point of view, but they attempt to cut through the lies, hypocrisy, shamelessness, stupidity, complacency, and other vices of democratic life.  Of course, we invite you to comment … and to send us images that you think might deserve a laugh or at least a wry and rueful look by those who are thinking about the character of public life today.

    True enough, but not far enough. I think this disconnection applies to more and more individuals. Thus what Gurdjeff called “the center of gravity” and what Qigong calls “centered and grounded” no longer exists for many Americans as they become bipolar Amerikans.
