Here's an excellent edition of Frontline about how we got into the current political stalemate. I listened to it as a podcast and haven't been able to watch it yet (although I fully intend to.) It struck me that the events that start the show were only three years ago, yet they seem so foggy already.
History is deceiving in that it brings order and understanding to events that were confusing and chaotic as they were happening. It's like when the supervisor pulls the tape (will that phrase survive in the digital era?) and everybody sits around thinking, "It doesn't sound that busy to me". You'll see what I mean. Watch it.
