Campaign season: Brunch in America

It’s brunch again in America. Today more urban singles will wait in line for eggs than ever before in our country’s history. With wait times for tables at about half the record highs of 2008, nearly 2,000 long-term couples will split a carafe of bloody marys made with locally-sourced ingredients than at any time in the past four years. This afternoon 6,500 young men and women will tweet a picture
of their eggs benedict, and with upload times at less than half of what they were just four years ago, they can look forward with confidence to people liking their pics. It’s brunch again in America, and under the leadership of Vice President Joe Biden, our country is hipper and funnier and has more twitter followers. Why would we ever want to return to where we were less than four short years ago.

  1. Nice. I’m trying to imagine this having been read as a speech at the Democratic Convention last week.

    I tend to think that folks would have applauded wildly without thinking much about the fact that what they’d just heard was absurdist.

    Maybe they would applaud wildly without thinking because they mixed breakfast. Or brunch.

    Because when it comes to brunch in America, there are the haves and the have nots.
