America's Counter-Revolution
The Constitution Revisited

From the back cover:

This book challenges the assumption that the Constitution was a landmark in the struggle for liberty. Instead, Sheldon Richman argues, it was the product of a counter-revolution, a setback for the radicalism represented by America’s break with the British empire. Drawing on careful, credible historical scholarship and contemporary political analysis, Richman suggests that this counter-revolution was the work of conservatives who sought a nation of “power, consequence, and grandeur.” America’s Counter-Revolution makes a persuasive case that the Constitution was a victory not for liberty but for the agendas and interests of a militaristic, aristocratic, privilege-seeking ruling class.

Clinton Tries to Change the Rules

Hillary Clinton thinks that, contrary to the agreed-on rules, whoever gets the most primary votes -- rather than the most delegates -- should win the presidential nomination. That's a little like claiming -- after the fact -- that the winner of the World Series is the team not that won four games, but that scored the most runs.

Since Obama wasn't even on the ballot in Michigan there is no way to know how many votes he would have gotten, even if they held a new election now. And nobody can know how many democrats voted in the republican primary because of Obama not being on the ballot. This is ridiculous. This is politics.

"This is ridiculous. This is politics."

No need to be redundant.

That's how I meant it, Joe.

Rules are so 20th century, anyway. I'm sure we'll come up with a better social adhesive soon enough.

Why does John McCain like sand so much?
