The Jan Morgan experience

Posted By on Tue, Jan 2, 2018 at 8:29 AM

The national media has begun to take note of Jan Morgan's entrance into the governor's race. I'd expect more attention — though Morgan probably has little to no chance to unseat Governor Hutchinson, the sheer spectacle is likely to prove irresistible.

Meet the Press host Chuck Todd tut-tuts, but of course it's the outrageousness of Morgan that caught Todd's attention and prompted him to dole out a little free publicity for Morgan to his 2 million followers on social media. Would the host of Meet the Press be gripped by a minor longshot primary challenge in Arkansas otherwise? The American experiment might hope for better, but most of us like to watch cartoons from time to time.

The news needs a funnies section, which is all this is. Unless she wins.

Morgan has a website up. The "Meet Jan" section has significantly more oomph than the "Policy Platform" section. It's enough to make you wonder whether Morgan is actually running to be a celebrity. A few more scolds from Chuck Todd and surely she could get a deal for a reality television show. It is 2018 and the future has arrived: Everyone is aggrieved for 15 minutes.

Happy holidays.
