Tim Egan has a fairly vituperative post up over at the NYT.
I don't agree with his conclusions: I think the American public, left, right and center, are too complacent, too stupified and too cowed to do any "raging" at anyone. Look at the peasant mentality of the "teabaggers" - ramping and stamping about "government interference" in their sorry little lives while the limos of the wealthy glide by toasting the largesse they are receiving from that government. Look at the way the rest of us - all of us - are willing to stand by and let a minority of fanatics insist that our supposedly nondenominational governments hold up a monotheist religious standard for who gets to form a domestic contract with whom.
No. We are, by and large, sheep for the slaughter.
But I do agree that our ruling class has largely become the wholly owned subsidiary of the rentier and corporate classes. If we're going to be outraged about something, why aren't we outraged that 44% of our congresscritters are millionaires?
We rebelled against a king and his aristocratic cronies for that?
And I loved his snarky comparison between the Bull Moose Republicans of yore and the RoboGOP and RoboDems of today.
Anyone with any other thoughts?
