And thus, the birth of the man Glenn likes to call “President Goldman Sachs.”
As Kevin noted, Wall Street abandoned the American heartland in 2008, so it shouldn’t be at all surprised to discover that someone showing up with an anti-Wall Street message resonates with voters there. I’m disappointed it’s a rather punitive and populist message than a conservative one, but historically, fire and brimstone populism has always allowed a candidate to position himself as the champion to a large group of disenfranchised voters.
Now Australian Liberal Party politicians have just elected Australia’s Member for Goldman Sachs as the next Australian Prime Minister.
