              Oh, of course. FFS.

              I suppose the white ruling class of yore (which includes some non-protestants, I suppose.) was more pragmatic and technically competent, and perhaps less absolutist in their ideology, than the current GOP, but that's not saying a whole lot. It's gotten worse for a lot of reasons, but it's sure as hell not the fault of "meritocracy" or "diversity."

                "Which is fair enough: The old ruling class was bigoted and exclusive and often cruel, it had failures aplenty"
                In marked contrast with today's Republican leadership...

                  Douthat used to get a lot of mileage out of being a Professional Catholic.

                  I wonder if he is re-considering his conversion.

                    Looking forward to the article based on London crimes...

                      There's loads of petty crime in London.

                            Bloody hell. The comments are excellent value, though.

                                  Are the Democrats taking notes from emptywheel because it seems clear that there's more traction there than we seem to be getting from the Democrats talking heads?

                                    Some of them definitely do speak with Marcy Wheeler. Perhaps not Pelosi, but certainly Schiff and/or staff.

                                        Why do so many people in the media think the US needs/wants a royal family. Was 1776 all for nothing?

                                            Also, I can't find a way to make Ursus's link get through to anything

                                              Try it now

                                              Here's a link

                                              Though it is their Twitter frame based on this quote that puts it beyond the pale.

                                              The Kennedys have long occupied the American political culture as the unofficial royal family, but this week, the Trumps appeared to present themselves as the 2019 version.

                                                I feel unwell. Almost every element of that makes me want to vomit.

                                                  They didn’t even really get that right. The one thing they definitely got right was getting rid of royalty and hereditary titles and yet we’ve been trying to restore that system ever since.

                                                    You should probably go with that impulse. You’ll feel better.
