Manufacturing Dissent Since 1996
New interviews throughout the week

Hillary, Bernie and hostage situationalism.


The things you people say about each other are viscerally astounding. I can understand demonizing Dick Cheney. However, as you move down from that apex of nearly pure contempt for human dignity, you of course acknowledge that each person along that descent towards the masses has human qualities in greater and greater amounts, until you come to Earth next to your dear old granny, or whoever is your model of selfless virtue.

In a Moment of Truth, Jeff Dorchen considers the Clinston / Sanders hostage situation, explains why Hillary isn't worth the contempt reserved for say, Dick Cheney, and how Sanders supporters have to re-engage with the Democratic party and its presumptive nominee.
