Hamilton and Pence

11/30/16

I’m a bit late to the Hamilton brouhaha after an out-of-town trip, but: These guys just don’t get it, do they? The actor who called out the vice president-elect seems to think he was being respectful. He is lecturing the new administration not on its actions — it’s not even in office yet — but on information presumably taken in his case from the NY Times and Facebook news posts. What are the chances that he’ll be fair in judging the administration once in office? This is why voters outside New York and California have just stopped listening. I’m sure I’ll see Hamilton eventually, but it’s telling that the creators and others in the show’s bubble don’t think the show itself is sufficient to convey the message. So tiresome.
