Russell Brand has become a rare, gracious and lucid voice of reason in our society. (Exclamation points.)
Isn't it a bit surprising, a bit of a shock, and yes, a bit of a shame, that we should have to wait for a mere "comedian" to take up this mantle? A shame, isn't it, that we should have to wait for Russell Fucking Brand to speak the truth so directly and effectively to the abuse of power that is drowning us?
Well, I'm just grateful. Thanks Russell! I hope that people listen. It's sad that a clown has to step forward as a statesman while all of the statesmen are busy turning themselves into clowns.
