Hewitt fails to show the relationship between the anarchist 60s radicals and the election. I disagree with his premise that the election is the result/victory of the 60s.

This wasn't a victory for 60s anarchists, it was a victory for statists.

I can't argue that our process isn't absurd or that our media isn't mired in the trivial. The day before I had interviewed Israel's Ambassador to the United States, historian Michael Oren, and had passed a pro-Israel demonstration in...
