Andrew Jacksonianism, 2009

Via Glenn Greewald, this is great! An American politician, in this case Mayor Virg Bernero of Lansing MI, getting all Jacksonian about the unholy alliance between Wall Street and Washington against the vital interests of working people:



See, Democrats, it can be done! He wasn't struck down by a thunderbolt from heaven when he attacked Wall Street bonuses and defended union pay and benefits for auto workers. Amazing!

And not only that. He was willing to get in a reporter's face for blatantly shilling for the bosses. Let's have much more of this. If we could get Harry Reid acting like this, the Republican Party might just disappear altogether after a couple more elections.

And I bet he won't be showing up at this ridiculous "fiscal responsibility summit" next Monday demanding that Social Security be wrecked, either.

No subject for immortal verse
That we who lived by honest dreams
Defend the bad against the worse."
