Sarah Palin and the middle classes
Nice piece by A Giridharadas saying that (even?) Sarah Palin has realised that 1. there is a permanet political class which is more and more removed from the general public; 2. these politicians are aligned with big business to create corporate crony capitalism, taking their cut from public spending 3. no one really cares about the public at large. Not very different from my post a few days ago: as long as the middle classes pay for the poor and the rich can keep taking thier cut, the politician is rewarded for his role.
