Huffington Post: A Last Word on the Elections
I think Johann Hari's piece is the definitive analysis of, not only Tuesday's elections, but of the political situation in this country. In contemporary times, it has been the case since Ronald Reagan was elected President and has continued uninterrupted. The right wing uses language and imagery to emotionally and psychologically manipulate Middle America while robbing them blind and laughing at the gullible all the way to the bank and power. The U.S. has become such an entrenched oligarchy, I don't know that it's possible to change that in this or any election.
