Forget the FBI cache; the Podesta emails show how America is run

If you aren’t part of this happy, prosperous in-group – if you don’t have John Podesta’s email address – you’re out.

American status hierarchy in all its righteousness and majesty.

John Podesta, who has been a Washington power broker for decade.

The Podesta emails show how America is run WikiLeaks’ dump of messages to and from Clinton’s campaign chief offer an unprecedented view into the workings of the pretty satisfied, pretty content elite, and how it looks after itself. Nobody takes road trips to exotic West Virginia to see what the members of this class looks like or how they live. They are, they think, not a class at all but rather the enlightened ones, the people who must be answered to but who need never explain themselves. it’s all supposed to be a meritocracy.
