About

I think it was Abraham Lincoln who said, "this whole country's kinda fucking crazy, folks." It's in the spirit of great statesmen that Our Long National Nightmare brings you a somewhat off-kilter look at American politics, history, and culture.

We've called the website Pyramid in the spirit of the unfinished pyramid on the Great Seal of the United States, because of the hope that the unfinished pyramid shows that the American experiment is never complete and because of the reality that it depicts how the American government can't seem to do anything right. Our Long National Nightmare is the central political reporting but there's also great stuff like our coverage of the 2020 Democratic primaries Who The F**k Are All These F**ks and other things that aren't even politics might show up. We'll see.
