What marks this political moment, in Europe and the U.S., is the rise of the unprotected.

It is the rise of people who don’t have all that much against those who’ve been given many blessings and seem to believe they have them not because they’re fortunate but because they’re better.
You see the dynamic in many spheres. In Hollywood, as we still call it, where they make our rough culture, they are careful to protect their own children from its ill effects. In places with failing schools, they choose not to help them through the school liberation movement—charter schools, choice, etc.—because they fear to go up against the most reactionary professional group in America, the teachers unions. They let the public schools flounder. But their children go to the best private schools. Trump and the Rise of the Unprotected - WSJ

Your Say

Noonan is so self unaware that doesn't realize that she's exactly the person she describes. What was the point of Jimmy's Italian accent? Noonan doesn't give two hoots about Jimmy or she wouldn't diminish him to make a phony point that she has her fingers on the pulse of the "unprotected".

Noonan and her GOPe ilk are dead to me.
