Daily Howler: It is about class, not competence or ethics

Daily Howler: When Harris reports on the Whitewater mess, the press corps' misconduct disappears: "you have to see what is really involved—the steady dissolution of progressive instincts in the face of the mainstream culture’s big pay-offs"

The hope that a "perfect storm" might sweep away right-wing stupidity has to be dulled by the realization that George W. Bush may be a product of broad social and economic trends, including the emergence of stricter, class stratification in American society.

It's kind of a distressing realization. And, it makes one wonder if class consciousness will prevent the society at large from realizing fully and completely what a total disaster the presidency of GWB has been.
