Pity the Billionaire: The Hard-Times Swindle and the Unlikely Comeback of the Right - Thomas Frank

It was an interesting book about how the Right used the traditional populist rhetoric of the Left to get people energized and turn their anger toward things like stopping health care reform rather than focusing on the bailouts. But as with What's the Matter with Kansas, I found myself wishing that Frank would take a hard look at the Left, too.

He seems to still believe that there is a populist movement on the Left but I no longer believe that's true of the Democratic establishment. One need only to look at the Progressive Caucuse's budget and how little attention was paid to it to see that.
