Sanders proves his critics right: Thin skin, sharp elbows and not a team player (Rubin, WaPo)

Jennifer Rubin column on Sanders's attack on ThinkProgress and the Center for American Progress:

https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2019/04/15/sanders-proves-his-critics-right-thin-skin-sharp-elbows-not-team-player/



Found the link to her column thanks to a tweet from Laurence Tribe:





Bernie will probably lash out at @JRubinBlogger for this column. Bernie supporters shoot angry tweets at me whenever I voice doubts. So be it. If he’s up against Trump, I’ll get the BURN. But I’d trust nearly any other Democratic candidate more.

2. So WAPO's "Right Turn" embarrassed republican doesn't like Bernie.

 

Good.


Same With Lawrence “Corporations a people too” Tribe.

Since the mid-1990s, Tribe has represented a number of corporations advocating for their free speech rights and constitutional personhood.[27] Tribe represented General Electric in its defense against its liability under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act ("Superfund", in which GE and Tribe unsuccessfully argued that the act unconstitutionally violated General Electric's due process rights.[27][28]

So amazing to see these republican attacks honored here on the Democratic Underground.

Republicans are already dividing us. It makes me sick.

3. I would have no other choice than to vote for him if he was the nominee

 

The only way I would vote for him in a primary is if he was in a one on one race with Anthony Wiener.

14. Wow! Lately there's been a narrative about how all is forgiven,

 

but I'm not seeing that. For every fan, there are 2 democrats who are still extremely angry with him. I don't think he has a shot.

17. Bernie folks -should- lash out. The author is a right-wing neocon warhawk.

 

May as well be posting editorials from Fox News. At least then we know it's bullshit from the URL, rather than foisting off this American Exceptionalism dipshit on the rest of us as a legitimate journalist.
