If you’ve got some time on your hands on this fine but dismal and drizzly Saturday, FORA.tv has a video from a few weeks ago featuring Daily Kos founder Markos Moulitsas talking about his book, “American Taliban”, and taking questions about the book, the upcoming midterm elections, and the general bad craziness that’s descended upon the American political scene.
He makes some interesting points, including an idea about teabaggers that I’ve pondered from time to time — that some of them might just be regular working class people hurt by the economy, pissed off and carried away by the momentum of the teabagger juggernaut (baggernaut?) orchestrated by the very people whose policies are the source of their aggravation. In other words, what should have been an electoral opportunity for Democrats.
