Paul Street on the splits within the GOP
Bill Resnick talks with Paul Street, an independent historian and blogger on Z-Net and CounterPunch, about the splits within the GOP and rise of the Tea Party, the differences with the Tea Party and Occupy, the evolution of the GOP ticket, Thomas Frank's "What's the Matter with Kansas" (hint: it's partially the Democrats), the idea of Occupy capturing the Democrat party like the Tea Party did the GOP. Street argues that however impossible, the Democrats would be a route to "real power", and that Occupy needs to begin relating to people in terms of actual policy.
