SEXIST: Fox Pundits Mock Clinton And Warren For Wearing Blue At The Same Time 28.6.2016 Crooks Liars
When you have two seriously brilliant and accomplished politicans on a stage, what do you expect people to talk about? Their education. Probably their career track. Definitely their aspirations. Maybe mention a scandal or two. And let's add in some comments about their spouses/children. That would be if the candidates were men. If they are women, the first thing you talk about is - their clothes. Yes, folks. Even in 2016, with a record number of women holding office and the first female Presidential nominee, Fox News, home of the most brilliant political minds, the focus always goes to looks. Here is a lovely exchange from today, where instead of focusing on actual substantive issues, they drift right to appearances . TRISH REGAN (HOST): Democratic Massachusetts senator Elizabeth Warren, taking a swipe at Trump today while stumping with Hillary Clinton in the swing-state of Ohio. The darling of the Progressive wing, she is said to be on Clinton's list of potential VP picks. Former Democratic pollster ...

Trump and the Racial Politics of the South 27.6.2016 American Prospect
This article appears in the Summer 2016 issue. Subscribe here .  For decades, Donald Trump has been known as a narcissistic, bombastic New York businessman who craves the media spotlight. However, if you unpack the dynamics of his support as a politician, Trump’s stunningly successful run to the top of the Republican ticket is less New York chutzpah and more Southern demagogue. Trump’s appeal to disaffected whites, especially working-class white men, evokes the racial politics of the white South. For a century and a half, a possible alliance between lower-income black and white Southern voters has been blocked by elites appealing to racial division. There is plenty of racism in the North, of course, though the South is the epicenter of this brand of right-wing populism. As the economic fortunes of working- and middle-class white men have faltered in the past generation, resurgent racism has filled the political vacuum. While anti-immigrant politics have their own history in America going back to the ...
