Recommended Reading

Last month, Rolling Stone's Tim Dickinson dug deep into the whys-and-wherefores behind the Republican Party's slow, steady metamorphosis into primarily representing the interests of the country's wealthiest few (though, just to be fair, it's not like the Dems are slouches in this area themselves). Now, Dickinson is back with another exhaustive treatise, this time casting his eye on the key issues that have, thanks to the demands of base voters for ideological purity, crystallized as the new Republican platform -- in the process buoying President Obama's reelection prospects considerably. There's too much meat in this one for me to pull just one highlight, so just jump over here and read the whole thing.
