Talk about an oxymoron.
You have to wonder if Mike did it on purpose. I mean he has to know that “realism” and “mysticism” don’t really go together. Doesn’t he? You can’t be a realist and a mystic at the same time. Can you? I don’t think so. I guess I should have asked him, but he looked a little busy. Reading those Tarot cards must consume a lot of mental energy.
I wonder if he does it for politicians, too? I suppose some of the things that they say could be classified as “realistic mysticism”. Or maybe “enigmatic truth”. Same thing, I think.
Actually, the politicians don’t really need Mike. They’ve been doing the same thing he’s doing for years and years. In fact, he probably took lessons from them. Set up your little card table, read the cards, and spit out some “mysterious truth”. Nothing to it.
For me, the truly “mystical” thing is that most of the electorate believes them.
