The resident Cominternist at the Washington Post, Harold Meyerson, scoffs at talk that Joe Lieberman’s defeat in Connecticut means the Democratic Party has moved left. But then he happily informs readers that not only Ned Lamont is anti-free trade, but so are other key Senate candidates Bob Casey, Sherrod Brown and Bernie Sanders.
Another Ned Lamont endorser: Michael Schiavo, the devoted husband who couldn’t wait to pull the plug on his wife last year in order to remarry. He’s devoting his free time to opposing every politician who sided with his wife’s parents in the case. Thus, he’s backing Democrat Angie Paccione in a Colorado congressional race. In welcoming his support, Paccione chose language that was, shall we say, unfortunate. “We need more individual citizens like him to step up and put an end to it.”
