Blowing up the system
Leftist critic Jeffrey St. Clair is working to turn politics upside down from his quiet little subdivision in Oregon City.
By Oakley Brooks
In the fall of 2000, with George W. Bush and Al Gore headed toward the nail-biting presidential election, Oregon City’s leftist agitator Jeffrey St. Clair launched a Molotov cocktail of a book onto the political scene. Al Gore: A User’s Manual, written by St. Clair and colleague Alexander Cockburn, depicted the vice president as a vicious, vain political creature who had consistently betrayed the left. The book was tame, however, compared to what St. Clair asked progressives to do. Two weeks before the election, St. Clair told Portland’s Willamette Week that given the choice between Bush and Gore, “My inclination would be to vote for Bush, for this reason: It would energize the opposition. You look at what it means to be a liberal or a progressive and I think you’ll find very few areas where Gore is on your side.”
Six years, nearly 3,000 American war dead, two lawlessly violent Middle Eastern countries, one recession, $3 trillion in new national debt, one botched hurricane response and a Plamegate later, St. Clair says he underestimated Bush’s incompetence and couldn’t foresee the loss of life, but he’s far from ready to retract his statement of 2000. In fact, he’s feeling somewhat redeemed.
