On being an idealistic Swede


The two types of stories I like most on Swedish radio are (1) where they
talk about the United States, since it’s enlightening to learn how others see us,
and (2) when they talk about slimy politicians.

The Swedes seem all upset that their politicians are selfish money-grubbing sleazeballs.
Hey, you idealistic Swedes, they’re politicians. Being selfish money-grubbing
sleazeballs is their job!
