Politics: the good news and the bad news
I love Elizabeth Warren. I think she’s real, she cares about people, she’s smart and tough, and she’s incorruptible. The bizarre news, under these circumstances, is that she’s running for Congress. Is she too good to win in politics? Don’t you have to be a slime ball? Don’t you need to attract and sell out to megacorporations to succeed? We shall see. It could be really great.
And just in case you think I’m being too cynical, please read this. It’s an absolutely stunning, depressing insider’s view of the Republic Party from Mike Lofgren, who retired in June after 28 years as a Congressional staffer, having served 16 years as a professional staff member on the Republican side of both the House and Senate Budget Committees.
