It's not so much that I don't see the thinking or how they get from A to B, it's that I really do despise it. As someone who works in a political environment, I see it on a regular basis but got to work with the world as it is.
I should correct something I overlooked in my initial post too. I found this a tough read because it wasn't pleasant watching this stuff happen to the characters, but that I'm responding that way is testimony to it being well-written.
