Markos is just as stupid as ever
So I was curious how the GOS was reacting to Sanders dominating the primaries.
Even after multiple purges of hundreds of Bernie supporters, the rec'd list had plenty of pro-Bernie diaries (with an equal number of pro-Warren).
Moulitsas expressed frustration at former Vice President Joe Biden’s continued candidacy:
“Not only did [Joe Biden] eat up a lot of oxygen, but he basically was the singular reason both Kamala Harris and Cory Booker weren’t able to gain traction … he created this meta-narrative that a white male was necessary to defeat Donald Trump, thus damaging people like Elizabeth Warren, and then he goes and runs one of the most god awful campaigns in the history of presidential campaigns. So he has done nothing but wreak havoc and destroy the diversity of the field, and leave us with a field that is bereft of the stronger candidates we would need to move forward.”
Moulitsas also shared concerns that Michael Bloomberg has bought the support of a significant number of superdelegates, many of whom are mayors, explaining, “He has been racking up endorsements from mayors because he’s been seeding millions of dollars into cities for years now, and mayors are going to be a big crop of the superdelegate pool.”
Despite the popularity of Senator Bernie Sanders, Moulitsas believes the only viable candidate is one who can truly unite the party.
So Booker and Harris were such "stronger candidates" that they are no longer in the race.
Why? Because they were black. No other qualification matters to Markos.
Policies, vision, competence and character don't even register. Only race and gender.
Meanwhile, Bernie with the most diverse support, "can't unite the party".
DKos is sinking in the rankings even in middle of the primaries, they are so irrelevant.
Check out where DKos was ranked at this time during the last election. Note the numbers.
