His enemies?

Mr. Winship needs to re-read some Howard Zinn, Chomsky, C. Johnson, Chris Hedges, Steven Hill, Sheldon Wolin and others.

The "Bipartisan Consensus" has been in place for many many years, yet folks like Parry, Wiship and other ivory-tower progressives still believe in the underlying assumption that they Ds and Rs represent different intersts.

Re-visit George Carlin on this issue, he states the case crudely, riddled with vulgar language, yet with spon-on accuracy.
