Late in The Candidate there’s a scene where Robert Redford, playing an underdog senatorial candidate, is sitting in the back of a limousine and exhaustedly riffing in a gibbering way on his campaign’s tagline until he unmasks it as the pure pap it is, causing his campaign manager to pop his head up in alarm. If my life had a tagline – you know, one beyond “I’m not as stupid as I look” or “Not again!” – I swear that’s what I’d be doing with it right now. I’m so tired and un-with it tonight I may as well be in a Holiday Inn room waiting to get up and go to tomorrow’s session of an Amish quilting convention.
