Hypocrisy from the Liberals?
Say it ain't so! As we all know, there is a Senate race in the Northeast, where some Democratic party bigwigs have decided to support an independent candidate over a qualified Democrat.
What we don't all know is that the state is not Connecticut, but Vermont. Bernie Sanders, a socialist who is running as an independent, is getting no opposition from the Democratic Party, or the liberal blogs. In fact, the party honchos
seem to be trying to make sure that no real Democrat gets on the ballot:State Democratic leaders are spearheading efforts to gather signatures to put Sanders on the ballot as a Democrat, even though Sanders has repeatedly said he would turn down the party's nomination if he wins the primary. At least three other candidates have announced their intention to run for the Democratic nomination in the Sept. 12 primary, but party leaders prefer Sanders to any of them.
Where is the concern from Matt Stoller and Jane Hamsher about the fact that the party elite is trying to keep Democrats from having a real choice in Vermont?
