A Republican apology

CPAC speaker calls conservatives “hypocrites” for ignoring Trump’s sexual harassment allegations

“I’m actually gonna twist this around a bit and say that I’m disappointed in people on our side… For being hypocrites about sexual harassers and abusers of women who are in our party. Who are sitting in the White House. Who brag about their extramarital affairs. Who brag about mistreating women. And because he happens to have an R after his name, we look the other way, we don’t complain.”

Long live neoliberal thought

“Neoliberalism” isn’t an empty epithet. It’s a real, powerful set of ideas.

“It’s hard to think of a term that causes more confusion, yet is more frequently used in political debate, than neoliberalism. It’s one thing to argue that the term should be discouraged or retired from public discussions, because it generates heat instead of light, but it is another to say that it doesn’t have any meaning or use,” writes Mike Konczal.
