Late Night FDL: From the Department of Dropped Masks

By: Friday May 11, 2012 8:00 pm

I don’t know how much of a coincidence this is. But it is interesting to me that just about the same time as we learn the cruelty of Mitt Romney’s adult life was preceded by teenage cruelty, a video surfaces with Wisconsin governor Scott Walker explicitly promising a wealthy donor that he would use a “divide and conquer” strategy to break the state’s unions.

Even if it’s unsurprising at some level, it is still a bit stunning to see how not just cynicism, but brazen malice is such a large factor in our politics. Not even a small shred of pretense remains that the welfare of the public is the ultimate goal.
