Norm Ornstein has become so frustrated with the national dialogue that he has started shouting at the TV.  His rants are, to be sure, quite erudite:

... I have grown increasingly frustrated with how the mythology of leadership has been spread in recent weeks. I have yelled at the television set, “Didn’t any of you ever read Richard Neustadt’s classic Presidential Leadership? Haven’t any of you taken Politics 101 and read about the limits of presidential power in a separation-of-powers system?”

It's just a television. And it was probably tuned to “Two and a Half Men.”
