Has Bernie Sanders really helped Joe Biden move further left?
(The senator’s relationship with Biden has proven constructive, with an ambitious agenda – but some Sanders aides and supporters offer a mixed verdict)
As much as I think Lee waited too long to run for the Senate seat, she may serve another purpose: to bring out differences between progressive and centrist politics. Has Schiff been accepted to CPC yet? I’ve not seen any news.
He’s no progressive; he’s a craporate Democrat. I sure wish Lee was about 20 years younger. However, Porter is running and she knows conservatives.
Half of the CPC isn’t progressive, but that hasn’t kept anyone out.
Some of them are in there cos it looks good PR-wise.
Like Shontel Brown.
Good point. 🙂
See Shontel Brown. But this time, both Porter and Lee are strong CPC members so it might be more difficult letting Schiff in just to help his run for Senate.
Good point again. Also, more genuine progressives/liberals are getting elected and adding to their numbers in the House. That spells power.
I don’t see Jayapal and Pocan saying no to Schiff, especially if Jeffries puts his thumb on the scale, which he could do.
Just wait until this cretin gets outside his PR bubble, and into the national spotlight. Orange Maggot got away with it but this yahoo won’t. 💩
FOX “News” is NOT news; it’s pure FRightwing POX Propaganda. Wouldn’t it be nice if we could kick the plague called the Murdoch family out of our country, pull their passports, and abolish their U.S. citizenships? They are a slimy insult to every decent American in this country!💩💩💩
Slotkin went on MSNBC to declare her candidacy, and of course, Larry O’Donnell almost anointed her as the candidate-nominee.
Let’s hear it for the 💩holes called the DNC. 💩
the first two,🤮🤮
There’s a 💩load of them. 🤮🤮
Bet they voted for Repukes if they voted at all. Sad.
It is a red district for sure. But Buttigieg and Biden just lost their vote for 2024 and possibly 2028.
I’m not voting for those 2 jokes and I’m a good 180 degrees opposite of the tRumpers.
Well to be honest, it would be extremely doubtful they would ever get it. Hopefully, they aren’t poisoned against Sherrod Brown in 2024. On the presidential level, Ohio is no longer crucial for the Pres election. In the Midwest, it’s all about Wisconsin and Michigan.
Michigan is already swinging Progressive. And it look like that sensible judge will win the WI SC seat. That will be YUGE!
I’m not confident Janet has it in the bag yet. We haven’t seen AIPAC money or Americans for Prosperity super PAC org.
True dat, but I’m gonna keep the faith (for a change). 🙂
Orl please dont jinx the thing!!!!!🤞🤞🤞😬😬
How am I gonna jinx it? 🙂
i thought i read something that it went around 70% for the cult.
One drug: insulin and not until next year. That is helpful as it’s outrageously expensive, but the other drugs – 9 others that won’t kick in until 2026?
No comment from the disgusted gallery.
C-SPAN interviewed some of the new frosh in the House. This one is Becca Balint.
Two new stars. Balint is extremely likely going to replace Bernie in the Senate when he retires.
Rupert and Lachlan Murdoch, huh? How cozy!🤮💩
T and R x 2, jcb!! ☮️🙂👍
Dave Dayen, from social media site mastodon:
Will someone kindly tell me why Americans vote against their safety and economic interests???
They vote on their social tribalism.
Sadly a fact for a lot of the GQP, for the uneducated, uninformed its as simple of looking for the R on the ballot
Well, Jill, you’re doing your old(!) man no favors. He didn’t get my vote in 2020, and he sure as hells bells won’t get it next year!
She’s OK; she’s better than the baroness was.
As usual, Bernie handled it well
Man, is she a twit! 😂
