Lonely crank!

If for no other reason than this, I'm coming out of retirement (yes, again -- you'd think I was Bill Parcells or something):
For a long time there we were told not to attack the fake centrists because at least they attacked Bush, too. But that position is now untenable because it became obvious that fake centrists only attacked Bush’s means, not his ends. Fake centrist economic schemes, which were and are merely slight variances on the corporate-whoring of wingnut policies, used to only be attacked by lonely cranks like General Glut. Now Duncan Black and Thomas Frank and others attack economic Technocrat ‘Centrism’ on grounds of principle as well as on the obvious point that such policies have lost the working class for the Democrats.
That's high praise indeed. If the blogosphere doesn't need another lonely crank, I don't know what it needs!

Zowie - two posts in an hour

And don't forget SN only used "crank" because it rhymed with Frank (and snaps like Black)

If the dems win one or both houses then you will have something to be cranky about. What is it about politics that makes people loose their brains?
