An opinion piece that's so depressingly insightful, nobody will want to read it, thus proving it's point. Oh well. But Mr Weisberg doesn't discuss whether this is new to US politics (except for post-WWII, it's actually the norm) and why it's happening now (eg., declining industrial base gutting the heartland, etc)
