Kat Coble has posted a pretty good summary of present day politics in the United States.
But, really, the two major parties are very much the same now. Theyâ€™ve both become interested solely in purchasing continued incumbancy, and any governance which may or may not occur is incidental.
Very true. This reminds me of an episode of The Wire I saw the other night–incredible show by the way. A Baltimore heroin operation is faced with the problem of taking an inferior product to the marketplace. Their solution? Split into two separate brands and manufacture some pretend competition between the two. The junkies end up buying the same crappy product either way, and the cash all flows to the same source.
