Reading Rant:"The Party is Over: How Republicans Went Crazy, Democrats Became Useless, and the Middle Class Got Shafted." by Mike Lofgren

Instead of reviewing this must-read book, I will strongly advise that you take a listen to Bill Moyers’ interview of the author, Mike Lofgren, a long-time Republican who describes the modern two party system as highly dysfunctional. In Lofgren’s view, Republicans have not only become overly obsessed with obstructing President Obama, but wildly apocalyptic as well. The Democrats, in his view, suffer from political complacency. What a whiff of fresh air to hear a former insider come clean on what is corrupting both political parties. As many enlightened political theorists have always maintained, it matters not who is in power as long as vile, greedy plutocrats control the show.
