This morning we’re all treated to a feminist screed by John Chait about some comments Diane Ravitch made about Campbell Brown.

If you’re surprised that someone like Chait should suddenly wrap himself in the mantle of feminism and set himself up as judge and jury as to who’s a good feminist and who’s not, don’t be. Because that demagogue party is just getting started.

I confess to being cynical. But remember when the first thing the Democratic House passed in 2006 was prescription drug reform — only to renounce it when they actually had the power to get it through?

Third Way’s Attack On Elizabeth Warren Prompted By Calls For Expanding Social Security

By: Monday December 9, 2013 6:59 am

Why did Third Way launch an attack on Senator Elizabeth Warren? According to one of the op-ed writers it was Warren’s support for a plan to expand Social Security that was the “final moment.” Clearly an unforgivable offense against the bondholders that Third Way represents who want general austerity and cuts to Social Security to [...]
