That's Isaiah's The World Today Just Nuts "Tom Hayden Democrats" and this is from Joseph Kishore's piece for WSWS:
Mass unemployment, poverty, unending war, the erosion of the most basic democratic rights—this is the “new normal.” The conditions that prevail stand as an unanswerable indictment of the capitalist system and therefore pose the necessity for its alternative: socialism.
The conventions, in their own way, expose the bankruptcy of the economic system that the two parties jointly defend. In the course of two weeks, the Democrats and Republicans vied with one another in their displays of demagogy and lying aimed at cloaking the fact that they have nothing to offer the American people.
And doesn't that just about sum it all up.
It was bulls**t.
It was all a con, like Ava and C.I. noted in "TV: Pig In A Poke" yesterday.
One lousy con that's supposed to take us in and trick us.
Closing with C.I.'s "Iraq snapshot:"
