…Of course it needs to be said that the DCCC is not the Democratic Party. At all. It is its own separate animal and heaping blame on the “party” when the blame belongs to the DCCC helps no one. It just confuses the issue.
And last but not least, progressives who gave Bernie a pass on saying the exact same thing a few months ago but are heaping scorn on the “Party” need to get their stories straight.
