Cornell always deserves 5

Tavis Smiley and Cornel West, together at last! I want to hear more from Tavis though...
I couldn't find the clip, but later in the interview, they DP Amy Goodman! You know, because black people!
Obama rocks. Shame on these Socialist nut jobs for dissing him. Would they rather have Romney won?
I'll bet they threw their vote away on Cynthia McKinney.
I know, right? Socialists keep going on and on about how great "government" is. Then "government" happens, and they're all, whine whine whine!
But yeah, like amed says. They mention Romney in the clip. You dork.
I haven't completely developed the idea, but I think what you're getting at is a big reason the left is so paralyzed right now, EvilHomer.
If you look at some of the biggest problems with our governing structures, like too big to fail, revolving doors between big business and govt, the general fusion between big business and govt, and a managerial class separated from larger society, those ARE state socialist problems. Since almost everyone in a position of power on the left still believes that state socialism in the mid-20th century form is the best possible type of government, they have no real structural critique of these problems that resulted in a large part from their ideas.
That's one reason why I really respect people like David Graeber, who are at least willing to call a spade a spade and try to imagine new forms of democratic organization.
I've really moved far to the left over the past two years. This is one of those rare videos where I can act like a right wing jackass again. You gotta give me this.
Cornel West bonding with Newt Gingrich over their hatred of Obama makes me very queasy. I know it has something to do with liberalism being dead.
