As Leibovich writes in his prologue:
Washington has become a "permanent feudal class," a massive self-sustaining entity that sucks people in, nurtures addiction to its goals, and imposes a peculiar psychology on big fish and minnows alike: It can turn complex, gifted and often damaged individuals into hollowed-out Kabuki players acting in the maintenance of their fragile brands."DC is a city of poseurs," Leibovich told Truthout.
