The resume wavers gather at Washington for the 2016 Derby, in which, one lucky fella, will be selected by the advertising men to be your new president.

It is the triumphant ubiquity of advertising that best gives the lie to The American notion of self-governing choice.

The Americans can’t trust themselves to choose what to eat for breakfast, let alone whom should govern them.

Burgers (1958)

The Americans neither desire to govern themselves nor evince the faintest notion of how to govern themselves.

Stokely – Van Camp’s Variety of Canned and Frozen Foods (1953)

Were the Americans of any state of mind to give, even passing thought to the idea of self-governance, as they watch the horses now parade onto the track for 2016, the Americans ought to think about this:

Dole Pineapple Hawaii Beach Anton Bruehl Photo (1953)

“Did I, or anyone else I know, select these horses to be in this race?

what?? #pudding #vintage #ad #food #1950s

“What, besides being members of the resume wavers class, qualifies any of these candidates for the White House?”


The Honest answer:

“Of course, I’ve never given any of this a first, let alone a second thought, as I rely on somebody else to tell me what to eat for breakfast.”

Pancakes, bacon, and baked apples for that sounds awesome! #food #bacon #breakfast #1950s

All this apropos of the American notion of democratic republicanism:  That we govern ourselves, through our representatives.

In fact, we are told, by advertising men, which of the resume wavers to select:


In precisely the same manner as we are told what to eat for breakfast:

Maxwell House Coffee (1953)

Demonstrating, QED, that the ubiquity of American advertising is that which governs the Americans, in all elements of their lives, most particularly so, in their exercise of what they like to call self-governance.

And, now, here’s the news of who you picked today, Mum…good, well done, brilliant, wise selection!!

    September, 1957
    Saint Jane Frances de Chantal Catholic parochial school, called, by anyone of any background, simply: “Chan~al,” a place where, of an autumn day in 1957, school,  for me,  began and ended in the first convening of the first grade in which a tiny nun, one Sister Dom Bosco, appeared before me, just behind the window appearing at far left of this photograph, and piped out this: “I may be small, but so then, is the Atom Bomb.”
    My determination to escape school commenced immediately on hearing about this Atom Bomb business and took 16 dicey and arduous years to finally accomplish.~~

    "Jean-Marie Le Pen is a friend. He is dangerous for the political set because he's the only one who's sincere. He says out loud what many people think deep down, and what the politicians refrain from saying because they are either too demagogic or too chicken. Le Pen, with all his faults and qualities, is probably the only one who thinks about the interests of France before his own."~~
