The Politician proves Ryan Murphys final form is an acid trip

He’s a writer, producer, and a director, however plenty of other individuals are. The characters’ outfits are fanatically styled and amped up to conjure up archetypes that barely existed till Murphy came up with them. No one on this show understands what they want, or why they’re here, or why they do the things they do, and watching their dramas (and hoo kid, there are dramas) play out generates a similar sensation in the audience. The off-kilterness of it all is both hilarious and uncomfortable– what even is this program? It distorts truth towards impossibilities of color and confusion, even if any surprises experienced during the trip will not hold up in a sober, saner light.
