Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I'm trying to think of the last time the American public called for a politician's head based on a sex scandal due to moral outrage rather than partisanship. I'm guessing there aren't many examples. Political life revolves entirely around the 25% of the population that identifies as hard-right nationalist / fundamentalist. No one else gets attention. Look at Obama's recent speech - you don't say those words to leftists. Not even American leftists.

I caught both MSNBC and Fox News yesterday. Both were presenting Bernanke's recent actions as what they were - a direct transfer of wealth from the middle class to the ultra rich. Fox News was channeling Eurotrib. I'm not joking. Not that it matters - we're not willing to go to jail or die to fight against this. I'm certainly not.

you are the media you consume.
