No Commentary? Well, maybe a little comment

Joe's idea of meaningful political commentary was expressed in the Times-Standard paper this morning. It is a bit long winded, but it seems this guy has the right idea about the Republican "Believers" and the Democrat "Hopers." Democratic polotics in America is more religious than most people are willing to accept. Beliving and hoping go hand in hand, you know? Joe seems to think this kind of meaningful change could produce something a whole lot more substantive and practical. The kind of a peaceful revolution Dave Berman talks about on We Do Not Consent that includes such high-minded ideals like "truth," "justice," and "liberty for all." Pie in the sky stuff.

The Eureka Reporter had an Op-Ed by Alexander Cockburn called "Change that means something?"

WHOOPS! Thanks Fred. Thanks to you I was able to find an ER link.

No wonder I couldn't find the article on the T-S website for a link. Wouldn't want the Times-Standard to get a bad reputation.

  1. I believe it was the Eureka Reporter that ran Cockburn's column.
