"The coinage “post-truth politics”, indeed, implies that there was once a golden age of politics in which its elevated practitioners spoke nothing but perfect truth. The sun never dawned on such a day. But perhaps what feels new to us now is the shamelessness of the lying, and the barefaced repeating of a lie repeatedly debunked."

The Dance Master With Kaleidoscope Eyes

In “The Lady in the Tutti-Frutti Hat,” from “The Gang’s All Here,” Carmen Miranda is joined by a long line of barefoot chorus girls who carry giant bananas aloft, lowering them to the ground in what now brings to mind a stadium-style wave. As an overhead camera passes by, 12 dancers, linked at the feet and holding jumbo strawberries, form a star while others surround them, raising and lowering their bananas like petals on a flower. (Berkeley was always up for a bit of surreal, phallic fun.)
