More See the Nature of the Beast

At a website called Ricochet- which I never read, as I gave up on mainstream conservatism some time ago- Obama is compared to 60’s New York mayor John Lindsay, perhaps the first politician to put together a rich/poor coalition.

Lindsay wasn’t that innovative- leftist politics were headed down this road as soon as communists started to work their way back into power in the Democratic party in the mid to late 50’s. Rich, upper-crust people jumping in front of the parade wasn’t new either- upper-class Englishmen became communist spies in the 30’s. This is still the first clear and obvious example of it in America though.

Mainstream conservatives used to talk policy ad nauseam, while ignoring the raw power politics of leftists. They seem to be a little more aware of how the leftist coalition operates.

About thrasymachus33308

I like fast cars, fast women and southern-fried rock. I have an ongoing beef with George Orwell. I take my name from a character in Plato's "Republic" who was exasperated with the kind of turgid BS that passed for deep thought and political discourse in that time and place, just as I am today. The character, whose name means "fierce fighter" was based on a real person but nobody knows for sure what his actual political beliefs were. I take my pseudonym from a character in an Adam Sandler song who was a obnoxious jerk who pissed off everybody.
