Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
So much to say and so little of it applicable to EuroTrib.

The US Left has no constituency, organization, wide-spread publications - thus no political influence.  The Progressive Wing of the Democratic Party, the squishest of squishy "Lefties," can be compromised away so they are compromised away.  Or they can be bought.  They simply don't matter in the general scheme of things.

For the umpteenth time: there is no Left in the US as a serious political force.  There's less than 100,000 people who are 'active' in some form or other who maybe speak to/for 5,000,000 - out of 300,000,000.  

Rush Limbaugh reaches about 14,000,000 people, more-or-less on a daily basis.

It doesn't matter what the WSW says or how they say it.

Nobody.  Cares.
