The progressive website Naked Capitalism provides a links page everyday which I have found useful lately in so far as this has been an Outstanding Year in Flatland (see most of the posts I've written in the past 6 months.)
Today's links include an excellent article called What Liberalism Has Become. That article cited an Amazon review of Thomas Frank's new book Listen Liberal: Or, What Ever Happened To the Party of the People?
The theme in all cases is that classic Democratic "liberals" actually represent and embody America's elites. No argument here. In fact, that's been a major revelation for millions of people this year. I thought you might find some of that Amazon review interesting. Here it is, with some emphasis added. I also made a few edits for clarity.
