Naomi Klein and The Nation should know better. The Democrats are entirely complicit, as a brief reference to Barney Frank in a more extensive article published by Rolling Stone reveals. The financial institutions administering much of the bailout and receiving funds from it supply both parties with substantial amounts of political contributions. Or, maybe, Naomi has forgotten that it required Democratic votes for the bailout to pass? This is a bipartisan elite theft operation, one that Obama will allow to be successfully concluded before he takes office. Perhaps, the gatekeepers at The Nation required her to characterize the bailout as primarily Republican in order for her article to be published.
