I interviewed you way back when about Zizek. I don't think I'm much closer to understanding him now. However, I recently read that Zizek frequently drops references to Phillip K. Dick. Being a sci-fi fan I find that illuminating. Have you looked into the relationship between them? And read "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?" if it's the last thing you do in this life...

From what I've heard him say, Zizek argues that post-politics is a situation in which administration only appears to have superceded politics, but has not in fact.

Absolutely agree that so-called 'neoliberalism' has been directed by the state. In fact, the size and power of the state has been growing - consider the military might of most developed capitalist nations - and its importance is waxing in the UK and US right now as is apparent from the bank bailouts, etc.
