Sanders seeks to disqualify two great liberals from convention
(from: Swing State Project @ May 31, 2016, 07:01 AM)

The Sanders campaign emails be the most absurd shit you?ve ever seen.

In a formal credentials challenge, Sen. Bernie Sanders? campaign on Friday asked for the ouster of two ?aggressive attack surrogates? for Hillary Clinton from key Democratic National Convention committees.

The campaign called for the removal of Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy as a co-chairman of the Platform Committee and former Massachusetts Rep. Barney Frank as head of the Platform Committee.

?Governor Malloy and Mr. Frank have both been aggressive attack surrogates for the Clinton campaign,? Sanders campaign counsel Brad Deutsch wrote in a letter to the party?s Rules and Bylaws Committee. ?Their criticisms of Sen. Sanders have gone beyond dispassionate ideological disagreement and have exposed a deeper professional, political and personal hostility toward the senator and his campaign.

Hmm, let?s see. Newly minted Democrat Bernie Sanders seeks to disqualify the first openly gay congressman who also happens to be the author of Dodd-Frank?the law Sanders would use to break up the banks, He also seeks to disqualify the architect of incredible progressive achievements in Connecticut, including paid family leave, stricter gun laws, and a dramatic decline in the state?s prison population. You know, two long-time Democrats who have done amazing shit. And why? Because they?re ?aggressive attack surrogates? ? in a political campaign! Try to contain your horror, please. 

Meanwhile, in what is apparently not a joke, Sanders named Cornel West to the platform committee, who is not an ?aggressive attack surrogate? at all? Sanders was supposedly the antithesis of a politician, yet here he is challenging the worst of them in the hypocrisy game. 

This is all part of Sanders? pretensions of a contested primary. Ha ha, as if. Except it?s hard to laugh when it?s clear that Sanders seeks to divide the party heading into its face-off with Donald Trump. Ironic, huh? We thought it?d be the GOP divided and in civil war. Little did we know that Sanders? kamikaze mission would wreak that on the Democrats instead.
