I read several blogs – I think in many ways it’s the best way to check the pulse of the nation – without being told what to believe by the established media. Some blogs are better than other’s, but Phil Ebersole’s blog is a real gem. His style is moderate, thoughtful, and journalistic. He always provides statistics and graphs to back up his assertions – I like that.
As a blogger – I like to spread the word about the good ones when I can. Especially those that are better than my own.
From the post “Are Democrats a top-and-bottom coalition?”
What you would have is, on the one hand, a party in which the Haves advance the interests of the Have-Nots at the expense of the Have-a-Littles, and, on the other, a party in which the Haves advance the interests of the Have-a-Littles at the expense of the Have-Nots. Such a political lineup would be poisonous to American democracy. It would mean the power of the elites would never be challenged.
