Progressives like Glenn Greenwald, Robert Reich, Chris Bowers and many others, say they understand the flaws in the healthcare legislation that has just been signed into law. For some real, but minimal benefits to a group of suffering Americans, they believe that they could not have opposed legislation that essentially locks the current, corrupt, for-profit healthcare system in place. This is my reply to one of them, but the message is for them all.

In a post on Salon today, Glenn Greenwald reveals to readers the essential tactic of the Democratic Party leadership. It’s not trying to get Republican support, it’s not filibuster reform, it’s not registering people to vote. It’s much more manipulative than that.
It is an explanation for the “lack of spine” that Democrats are often said to have – which, we can now see, is merely a convenient illusion for prominent Democrats. It is a scapegoat that they can use so that progressives will continue voting for them even though we get nothing that we ask for, and instead have to take whatever crumbs are given to us.
So what is it?
This is what the Democratic Party does; it’s who they are. They’re willing to feign support for anything their voters want just as long as there’s no chance that they can pass it.

How did the US military reduce Clausewitz to “get ‘er done”? Lt. Col. William Astore (USAF, Ret.) yesterday posted at TomDispatch.com a detailed analysis of our military’s obsession with the mythical superiority of Third Reich methods, such as blitzkrieg. One problem our military overlords overlooked: those methods got their Nazi master’s asses kicked all around the world. Pepe Escobar’s July 20, 2008 interview with Nick Turse and Tom Engelhardt, The Pentagonization of US Life, amplifies Astore’s points.
