The truth is, we say we desire more authenticity in our politics, but when push comes to shove, we want authenticity only when it mirrors our own narrow values and ideals. The reason politicians hire image consultants and stick doggedly to their talking points is that spontaneity and frank talk is punished far more frequently than it is rewarded. That is why it is the public, not the spin doctors or the media, who are to blame for a political culture that is as bland and homogeneous as fast food and DIY furniture.
