Delusion is en vogue. Anything and everything to distract ourselves from reality, Americans watch absurd television shows that make them feel safe in odd ways. With “Scandal”: I don’t even know where to start. That show represents a child’s version of Washington, D.C. after watching an 80’s action films.

Kerry Washington is the actress who portrays “Olivia Pope,” on that fictitious and absurd television show. She cited her fictitious character as credibility for identifying political “spin.” I haven’t seen the claim trending. Maybe no one blinked at the assertion. Enter: our societal ability to equivocate experience with pretending to have experience, professionally. It brings new light to the “no, but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night” line of commercials. Because underneath, maybe that’s how our society thinks now. This is larger problem in society, that she even felt emboldened to make the statement and stand by it.

That’s the average millennial – pre-qualified but never bothered to check the pre-requisites. I’ve found myself guilty in some ways of that mentality. No one is immune from cultural trends that they grew up around.

In regards to her ability to identify political spin. That show is so far from reality and ‘off the reservation’ that citing her make believe role in it immediately disqualifies her from weighing in on any and all things regarding Washington, D.C. and politics.
