While Getting Understanding

How many years out of government is Robert Reich when he warns…?

“These twelve people have more power over your daily life than your congressman and Senator, maybe even your president.”

Stephen Lewis writes frankly and honestly about campaigns and rage in America:

Far more interesting and insidious than the slips-of-the-lips of members of Obama’s confessional circles is Hillary Clinton’s decades-long involvement in an oligarchical right-wing prayer breakfast group called The Fellowship.

Sound like the stuff of crank conspiracy theories?

Writer Jeff Sharlet of The Revealer, a New York University weblog covering religion and the media, has just completed a book on the subject. Will apologies and statements of distancing and denunciation of The Fellowship be forthcoming from the Clinton campaign? I doubt it.
