Response to Hell Hath No Fury (Reply #8)

19. The main reason I rarely post.

This kind of stuff has been normalized to the point being accepted by the majority of Part. You'll hear all about McGovern from 1972, who was certainly no leftist. He simply ran against an incumbant and was outspent 9 to 1. Also the whole media was in on it. because they wanted the end of the anti monopoly rules among other things. In reality the super delegates have always gone with the winner of the most votes, so I don't think it's had much effect. It has got to the point that anybody for universal healthcare is branded a "leftist" even though it's been a part of the platform sine 1948. Someday, the party has to come back to life with real programs rather than "We don't Suck as Much".
