And Their Enablers

As Glenn suggests, it's remarkable, at times, what isn't remarkable. And the system of legalized bribery we have in this country is so part of how our government runs that unless someone is literally funneling cash into their bank accounts (and sometimes not even then) it's just seen as business as usual. The media, aside from turning a blind eye to the worst of this stuff, enables it by cloaking the worst of corrupt practices and their practitioners by blessing it all with the label of "moderation." It's moderate, you see, to let the banksters dictate your vote. It's moderate to transfer wealth upwards from poor to rich.
