Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

Feel The Bern!

Reading this profile of Sanders' voters in Iowa, I can only marvel that so many Nader voters are still around.

Politics isn't dysfunctional because Obama didn't do grassroot organizing.  Politics is dysfunctional because of polarization and people putting party over country and hard evidence.  Politics is dysfunctional because of the Republicans.

Obama is disappointing to the Left, because the Left will always be disappointed.  Because no one can meet their impossibly high standards.
