This column makes me think about some of the posters here...how their grandfather was a 

democrat, their dad was...etc.

 

Just like rooting for a favorite football team.

Re: Paul Krugman gets one right!

One of the commentors had a terrific George Orwell quote "There are ideas so absurd that only an intellectual could believe them".  Well we see on here, you have the rude crude smash your face Democrats like the 3 Amigos.  Then there`s the intellectuals, the Bruces, Knappers and Noxs they try to make sense out of a nonsense liberal movement...tough job, it involves ignoring alot of facts.

 

The last half century there`s been a war on the Black family, the dad was put in prison and the government took over as father in the black family.  Well after 50 years of that, you see much of the American blacks are a wrecked people, liberals have done this to them.  And like Kevin Bacon bottom paddled in Animal House, the Blacks show up at the polls for Democrats "Thank you, may I have another?".

Re: Paul Krugman gets one right!

You don't think any identity work is being done on The Folk, heh?

 

I'd say that's generally a function of the meme- when you are The Folk then everybody else is aberrant. That's been developed in a highly calculated fashion over a long period. Nixon is a good place to start.

 

BTW, Bernie's shtick wasn't exactly that other than unequivocally stating that he'd defend the rights of every single outgroup.

 

It was class based, and a lot scarier. As long as the Trumps and Clintons of the world keep the struggling majority seperated by identity you don't have anything to worry about.

Very similar view from a few notches over...

...in the spectrum:

MSM very disappointing in not pressing anybody, in thoroughly discounting, the candidates who have shown interest in making the election "about policy"....Sanders, as the writer mentions, on the one side and, say, Santorum and Huckabee on the other.  Always identified merely as challengers....never more in content than generalities about them.  As the PTB would want it to be.

 

There aren't 2 more genuinely interesting candidates in this race, at any point in it, than Gary Johnson and Jill Stein.  Bring them up at a party or family gathering and look for the bewilderment. Neither anywhere near so quirky or impractical as a Nader or a Perot.
