Jacob Weisberg advises Clinton

Another voice from a ‘Center’ dominated by a total lack of political modesty and an unshakable faith in Neo-Liberalism, and its successor the TPP, offers more of the same: a belief in the political inevitability of both Trump and Clinton. What the future holds is always predictable for those with special abilities! The cast of political characters that bought you that failed Neo-Liberal Revolution now bring you the TPP! If Communism was the product of a failed utopianism, what can we call the ardor expressed by that same old coterie of purchasable thinkers/writers?

Mrs. Clinton isn’t ‘likable’ but compared to the ‘poisonous windbag’ she faces, she has as yet undiscovered charms. The Neo-Cons have pronounced on their preference for Clinton, and even McConnell has pledged, in the heat of the primaries, to drop Trump like a ‘hot rock’. What ever happened to the Republican Party and its 11th Commandment? Like so many political commentators  Mr. Weisberg offer comments on the future, yet there are no indispensable political actors, only an ever changing cast of characters and the best laid plans of those actors, who project themselves into unknown territory. The rest is mere chatter.

About stephenkmacksd

Rootless cosmopolitan,down at heels intellectual;would be writer. 'Polemic is a discourse of conflict, whose effect depends on a delicate balance between the requirements of truth and the enticements of anger, the duty to argue and the zest to inflame. Its rhetoric allows, even enforces, a certain figurative licence. Like epitaphs in Johnson’s adage, it is not under oath.' https://www.lrb.co.uk/v15/n20/perry-anderson/diary
