Some plain talk from the executive director of the National Nurses Association, RoseAnn DeMoro, on the notion that the DNC is closely involved with the protests in Madison:
This is such a DC insider insipid analysis. Of course the DNC didn’t lead this, it was a protest.
This DC insider perspective is not the shared perspective with the rest of the US who are clearly not into the two party faux bipartisan neatly constructed box. As for DC progressives, I agree with Cornel West, Obama has domesticated them. But I think that you might be surprised at the absolute contempt everyday people (outside of the beltway) have for this beltway bullsh**. The outrage is real. It is spontaneous and if the DNC disappeared, it wouldn’t matter.
I don’t agree that Obama domesticated DC progressives — they were neutered at least 20 years ago — but otherwise, more of this, please.
