esquire.comBeing our semi-regular weekly survey of the state of Our National Dialogue which, as you know, is what Perry Como would have sung, had he recorded “Derp In The Heart Of Texas.”

We must give the Sunday Showz a pass this week because they honestly were overtaken by the horrible events in Orlando. (And, my god, what a break Maureen Dowd caught, because everyone forgot about this.) In fact, they all did a decent job scrambling to report the details from what was still a very active crime scene. But they all spent far too much time debating how awful it is that people can kill other people with guns and being somewhat mystified at why we can’t all come together to agree that letting an unstable alleged wife-beater whom the FBI interviews twice walk into a gun store and buy an AR-15 might not be the best public policy idea in the world.
