Let them know what you think in the comment section.

It may be true, but

It may be true, but significant only if one values form over substance. While the level of oratory may not impress, these "8th graders" have brought a paradigm shift in the substance of discourse on the Hill.

The irony of this piece is that the choice of subjects made by the author among the issues of the day indicates a level of sophistication that is comparable to 8th grade level journalism.
