Trump as theatre

Some American said to me during the hanging chads imbroglio that 'we Americans sure do know how to make mini-series: OJ, Monica Lewinsky and now Florida.' I never understood why OJ mattered to non-Americans but since then we've had 9/11, as the Americans call it, the Iraq war (a tragedy in many episodes, not a mini-series), Lehman Bros and Donald Trump, in some ways strangest of all. Whatever your opinion of him, you must agree that this is such great theatre. A sort of political Rocky.
