America's Government Has Surrendered to Corporatism
As Frank Rich writes in the weekend New York Times in an op-ed entitled, "Still the Best Congress Money Can Buy," American lawmakers now respond only to those who still have all the cash:
"... When it was reported just days before our election that Iran was protecting its political interests in Afghanistan’s presidential palace by giving bags of money to Hamid Karzai’s closest aide, Americans could hardly bring themselves to be outraged. At least with Karzai’s government, unlike our own, we could know for certain whose cash was in the bag."
