What's Mallard raving about today?
The Emmys, A Capricious Cadre of Cultural Oligarchs, unpopular but critically-acclaimed shows, Redeeming Social Value, Presidential Primaries.
Couldn't you come up with one more "c" word to complete the alliterative phrase correctly? I suggest "Capricious Cadre of Cultural Cabalists." That said, given the general furor over the new Emmy nomination process, it hardly requires conjuring up the spectre of the Illuminati to explain the nominations.
