Quote of the Day (Adam McKay, on Why ‘Politics’ Is a Misused Word)

“I think ‘politics’ is a misused word. Like the language that Wall Street used around subprime, there's an agenda to convince people this stuff is boring, they don't need to pay attention. We should call it ‘power.’” —Screenwriter-director Adam McKay (The Big Short, Vice), quoted in Danny Leigh, “Without President,” The Financial Times, Jan. 12-13, 2019
