1. I've been critical of Joan for

 

2 months. When I tweeted her about her Tweety appearances, she would just retweet to her followers. Her daughter has been working for Hills campaign. Why she waited this long is beyond me. And why did Katrina hire her to begin with. A person with integrity and honesty would be nice.

7. This insipid "under the bus" meme only has meaning

to those who rely on the opinions of others to form their own. I can honestly say I don't care who BO, EW, JC... endorse.

8. Sorry, all I know is she's a columnist. As I've never lauded her,

 

I can scarcely be charged with throwing her under the bus. Joan Walsh is hardly some progressive hero, in any case.

4. From my perspective

this person is awash in denial of the obvious conflicts of interest.
There is no notion, in my mind, of incompetence on her part or of her daughter's until she begins mentioning the fact that she isn't biased just because her daughter works for the Clinton campaign. SHe then goes on to cite a colleague who ALSO couldn't be biased because her daughter ALSO works for the Clinton campaign. I'm surprised she was able to type those sentences, that her human fingers didn't revolt under the command synapses coming down from her malfunctioning brain.

OK, we're supposedly all adults here. We all agree that, in large part, there isn't that much daylight between HRC and SBS on most policy issues. The author even acknowledges that Senator Sanders should be commended on his voting record but somehow the former Secretary is "leading" on women's issues, even though she served in the Senate only briefly. I can't comprehend the nature of the blinders she's wearing.

Another thing, and I'll admit that this is speculation on my part, if the citizens of Toulouse aren't far more in favor of Bernie Sanders than ANY other candidate that this country has produced in the last fifty years, I'll eat my hat. This is France we're talking about. A country where people will march in the streets to extend a coffee break.

Have at me if you must but I think this article is full of bunk.
