Thomas Frank Explains Why Hillary May Talk Reform, But Will Never Be a Reformer

"The hypocrite's crime is that he bears false witness against himself. What makes it so plausible to assume that hypocrisy is the vice of vices is that integrity can indeed exist under the cover of all other vices except this one. Only crime and the criminal, it is true, confront us with the perplexity of radical evil; but only the hypocrite is really rotten to the core."

Hannah Arendt

"Those who are able to climb up the ladder will find ways to pull it up after them, or selectively lower it down to allow their friends, allies, and kin to scramble up. In other words: 'who says meritocracy says oligarchy.'"

Chris Hayes

The DNC is an arm of the Clinton wing of the Democratic Party.

Hillary is a neo-liberal on economics, and a neo-con on foreign policy.

She and her crowd are masters of spin and the management of popular perception.

I think Frank and Scheer are being far too kind.

The politicians and bankers know exactly what they are doing.

They are not deluded, or simply mistaken; they simply do not care.
