    but Cornel West's.

    And I think he has good reason for saying so, Antone Bursh.

      99% of people don't care what he says (he lost credibility when he pushed the "Gore =Bush" lie when campaigning for Nader), and hiding behind him so you can put forward language that would normally draw many HRs is weak.

      •  oh wow (0+ / 0-)

        "99% of people don't care" -- what a swift way to discredit one of the nation's top intellectuals.

        The Gore=Bush wasn't a lie, it was right on. and principled people supported Nader.

        if anything, Obama's first term is actually confirmation of West's hypothesis that both parties are far too similar on issues of inequality, foreign policy, and civil liberties.

        the only differences are superficial social issues.

        people don't "lose credibility" for supporting a candidate who you don't support.

        only amongst hopeless partisan foodfighters has anyone in any third party lost "credibility".

        in fact, an intellectual who has written volumes of valuable work has WAY more credibility than some guy on the internet crying about third parties.
