I wonder why?
Edited on Mon Aug-12-13 01:05 AM by No Elephants
The professional left and the right (by which I mean the politicians, not the pundits) have united in economic policy, to the detriment of the 99%, which is a very bad thing. They are also becoming closer and closer on social issues, which is a mixed thing, given that no one is advocating the leftist position anymore, but the rightist position is softening.

Meanwhile, though, as the political positions get closer, the pols and the pundits have both ratcheted up the red team v. blue team divisiveness to unprecedented levels.

The "divide and conquer" crap, intended or not, is a win win for the PTB and a no win for the 99%.

If the 99% ever want to win diddly economically, they had damned well better find a way to come together on economics against the 1%. And I don't mean come together by joining the 1% in their "blessed" union on economic matters.

That is going to mean shedding blind party loyalties on both sides and acting in their own economic interests.

Can OWS and Taxed Enough Already ever find common ground? If not, the total economic screwing of the 99% is going to continue.
