So Much for a President Warren

It seems she is just a little too acquiescent to the same old Beltway bullshit as the rest of them.

As somebody in the comments noted, she would never have been allowed into the Senate in the first place if the elites thought she was any kind of real threat to them at all.

Bernie Sanders looks better and better all the time, but some commenters thought he was just as politically toothless as Warren.

Face it: Liberalism has been marginalized for the past thirty or so years thanks to neoliberal infiltration.

Damn this comment after the article is good:

The Democratic party has been a sad joke for so long these little hissy fits provide comedic relief for us "outside the beltway" types that recognize defeating capitalism (not reforming it) is requisite to any improvement in conditions. That the self censoring parameters of discussion is so banal is depressing and is really just a waste of everyone's time. With the Supreme Court now making a mockery of critical thinking, we've hit the trifecta of all three branches of government being a national embarrassment of self replicating mediocrity. There is no hope without vanquishing these jackasses with revolutionary tactics equal to their entrenched servitude to the ruling class.

Well, it was the late senator from Nebraska, Roman Hruska, who said mediocre people need representation:

When Senator Hruska addressed the Senate in March 1970, speaking on Judge Carswell's behalf, he asked why mediocrity should be a disqualification for high office.

''Even if he were mediocre,'' Mr. Hruska declared, ''there are a lot of mediocre judges and people and lawyers. They are entitled to a little representation, aren't they, and a little chance? We can't have all Brandeises, Frankfurters and Cardozos.''

Now they are overrepresented in D.C.
