It's an interesting read. And not terribly long.

And BTW, it was posted by a Hillary supporter.

1. Misleading crap

 

DSCC money and pocket change at that.

2. Bernie's damned if he does, and damned if he doesn't

If he doesn't-- "He doesn't support Democrats!!!111lll!"
If he does-- "He's a hippokrit-- he attends fundraisers!!!111lll!"

4. I think this was written as a slam against Bernie but in doing so it confirms that he does raise $

for other Dems.

Is that how you interpret it?

5. I ran through it pretty fast, so I have to say that I could certainly see it that way.

It was posted by someone I know on Facebook who doesn't miss any opportunities to slam Bernie.

Mostly I stay away from her stuff, but I couldn't resist this one.

6. from the link

Sanders campaign manager Jeff Weaver brushed off the candidate’s presence at the retreats, noting that guests did not only include financial services industry lobbyists, but also representatives of organized and other progressive constituency groups.

“These are not like Wall Street only events. They represent a much broader range of Democratic supporters,” Weaver told MSNBC.

A guest list obtained by MSNBC from the 2007 Martha’s Vineyard retreat does show a mix of attendees, though labor unions and constituency groups are a minority. “He certainly never lobbied or asked any financial people for money,” Weaver added.

8. Yup. I highlighted it too, on Facebook, for the person who posted it.

I'm curious if she has anything damning to say.

7. Oh noes! It's over. Over, I tell ya. Look.At.This:

 

.

Sanders was even once spotted chatting sociably for close to an hour with a financial services lobbyist who was in a hot tub while the senator sat nearby.


Stick a fork in him. He's done!

10. poor msnbc - their blog posts are

reeking of desperation. this could be an example of a hit piece written by a clinton campaign "investigator" and this was the only dirt they could find.

11. The best line in the story

Some guests said they were surprised to see the populist crusader at these lavish events and suggested he was probably in it for the free vacation.
