Strange new battle lines are being drawn in Washington. It’s probably the most interesting bit of realignment in my lifetime. Things are changing, especially in the GOP, and it appears irreversibly so.
OK, I think there are any number of reasons why Ms. Clinton should not be considered for the presidency. But I guess I need to add delusion to the list. I think she’s conniving, ruthless, a crony capitalist, an opportunist, and generally a political hack. But I didn’t think she wandered around in an alternate reality. Does she seriously believe that even her supporters are buying this nonsense?
Harry Reid, always good for a Senate floor soundbite. In this one he explains that politics is a game controlled by billionaires but that the Dems don’t have any billionaire sponsors.
As your mom (hopefully) said, “Cheaters never win.”
They do however get rich sometimes. And for some that’s all that counts.
As we’ve said before, the last thing this country needs is another Clinton or Bush in the White House.
Urban politics is a nasty game. The taxi business can be a nasty business. Where the 2 come together there seems to be a synergistic effect. The below article is a case in point.
Probably the last post on this we’ll do on the “Nazis are socialists” debate for a while, but this essay comes from Jonah Goldberg, the author of the book Liberal Fascism so we’ll include it.
Trippi is an old time Democratic consultant who is very smart and his analysis here is interesting. This is a video well worth watching for those who care about the massive political changes going on right now especially on the so called American “Right.” He sees the libertarian movement as perhaps the most important movement in American politics and a movement which will change (and is changing) the political landscape.
I am proud to say that I work with people from all 3 groups regularly. The libertarians I find are the most intellectually stimulating and they have the best taste in music. The progressives are fun because they are bewildered by my positions and seem amazed that anyone not wearing a coon skin cap can be for the 2nd Amendment. They also always have a vegetarian option for lunch. Conservatives invariably have the best food generally, the best liquor, (I don’t drink liquor) and play golf. (Which is a positive in my book.)
