Along with Matt Stoller, former staffer for Alan Grayson (D-FL), another prominent Democrat refuses to support the uniparty this election.
In a recent interview, Camille Paglia got downright Firebaggery.
You’re getting an exclusive, because I haven’t said a word about this publicly. Journalists have tried to get me to comment, and I’ve refused, because I’ve been saving it for Salon!
OK: Who are you going to vote for?
I am voting for the Green Party.
Oh, you are? I don’t even know who the Green candidate is. Who is it?
Jill Stein — a doctor from Massachusetts. Now, I wouldn’t be voting Green if Roseanne Barr had won the nomination, but Stein is a solid and sensible candidate. I don’t agree with everything the Green Party says, but I’m in tune with many of its basic positions. I’m remaining a registered Democrat because I still hope for the reform of my party.
Hence I want to use my vote to make a statement about my unhappiness with the Democratic Party and the direction it has taken. The biggest issue for me is the Obama administration’s continuation of endless war, war, war.
I have been revolted by the silence of the liberal mainstream media about Obama’s expansion of war.
Sound familiar? She’s got a lot of company with people who share the same sentiment.
Please read the whole interview. She’s got some great thoughts on how conservatives have replaced liberals as the group who champions freedom, the liberal establishment, and of course the art world.
