Matt Taibbi with Bernie Sanders

Bernie's view of the last elections:

 "The assessment has got to be that not only did we lose the White House to the least-popular candidate in perhaps the history of America, certainly in modern history, but we've lost the Senate, we've lost the House, we've lost two-thirds of the governors' chairs in this country. We've lost 900 seats in state legislatures throughout the country in the last eight years. Maybe it might be time to reassess?"

If you read nothing else this week...

Here's the real cost of our education system. We so wanted a FDR that we believed that Obama might be one, or that he was a democrat, or a liberal, or not owned by Goldman, or something except the truth. And now we want to punish the poor. The bank bailouts, somehow, in a uniquely American vocabulary, were not entitlements. Nor the no-bid thefts in Iraq. That's not welfare? Only in America.

Americans in heaven...

If the streets of heaven are paved with gold, is heaven a capitalistic society? Or will everyone have the same amount of gold? Isn't that socialism? Does that mean Americans won't go to heaven? Will there be unions for harp players? I'm looking for reasons that the Rapture failed to lift anyone away.

All those luxury jets...

Sadly, most Americans, I would guess, don't want the things Jilani lists in this article.

Selling the farm

I just returned from Finland, a country that actually works. Maybe we could hire 100 Fins to run the US for a few years. I suppose they're too shy to propose managing the whole world.

Trivial Pursuit

Last night CNN interviewed Paris Hilton and her mother. Paris said she was "self-made." So are the new American tent cities that CNN doesn't report on.

Damn. I was looking forward to a new brand of American idiot. (with only an inch of forehead as they say in Ecuador.) Do you suppose his hands indicate the size of a fish he just caught?
