n.— «Why are so many of these angry workers, who can barely pay their family’s bills, voting for radical conservative (“Radcon,” in Reich’s parlance) Republicans instead of Democrats? Because, Reich answers, the Radcons have “exploited these workers’ anger and channeled it toward those familiar targets they want to blame—poor blacks and Latinos, welfare recipients, affirmative action, immigrants, women, Washington bureaucrats, Hillary and Bill and, of course, liberals. Anger is a potent political force. Radcons have been remarkably, and tragically, effective at their scapegoating.”» —“Reich’s optimistic strategy to get Democrats back in power” by Steve Weinberg San Francisco Chronicle May 16, 2004.
