“Can I say one of the problems is that the establishment, if you will, of the Republican Party, including, say, its consulting class nationally and its presidential candidates, what they’re trying to do is hit the target of what they imagine in their imaginations is the feelings and impulses of the base. They’re not good at that anymore. They’re not in touch with — with the ground in America anymore in a way that they used to be. And that’s part of the problem. They’re not aiming at a specific target, they’re aiming at a target they can’t fully see.”
I wonder what Peggington imagines in her imagination when she’s in touch with the ground–At peace with the floor–usually around closing time. Is she aiming at a target she cannot fully see, or a target that only she can see (or sees double)?
