    Off topic, but WRM and his staff might like this nuanced analysis of the situation in Ukraine:

      For whatever reason, Motl has accepted the Russian narrative of the revolution in Kiev, which is that the new government is dominated by neo-Nazis and fascists. This seems to shape his largely anti-Western view of the situation. I don’t buy it. My impression is that the Russians are tapping into deep fears in the region of a fascist resurgence, fears with a sound historical basis, but which unfairly tar the majority of the revolutionaries with the legacy of long-distant choice to side with Hitler against Stalin.

    Can we really call the public employee unions and their minions “left wing”. Aren’t they really defending entrenched privilege? Isn’t that the definition of “right wing”?

      Your post is lame, but it is also lame for the original poster to call Jerry Brown a “centrist Dem.”

  • PKCasimir

    Is WRM now doing its hiring at Berkeley, the only place in the country where Jerry Brown is considered a “centrist Democrat?”

      Among the CA Democrats, Brown is centrist. Strange and sad, but true.
