67. You claimed a lot, but failed to provide ANY proof of what you do.

You therefore have no right, that's none-zero-nada to make any insulting presumptions about Manny, me or anyone else with whom you disagree. But in your grand tradition of undocumented claims, and because the last thing I would do is provide my name to your cohort, here are some my lifelong bona fides.

I've campaigned for Democrats in every election since JFK (heard him speak at my university as an undergrad), i.e. knocked on doors, collected signatures for nominating petitions, worked the polls, and phone banked for local, state and federal candidates; had an uncle who was state party chair for many years (his obit described him as "Mr. Democrat"/I have a treasured photo of him with JFK in the Oval Office); was a guest at Clinton's first inauguration (one of my kids worked for the DNC and the inauguration committee), have served as both appointed board member and an elected official in my local government for the 10 years since I retired from working for the State House Democratic Caucus.

But most important of all, grasshopper, I have never sold out the political values of my grandparents, parents, and, I'm proud to say,my adult children, to the centrists/corporatists/Third Way bunch. I am sickened and disgusted at any Dem. who supports candidates who sell out their constituents to Big Money interests/lobbyists/ and/or appoint Wall Street oligarchs to state or federal cabinet positions. Obviously you and I are on different sides of the present split in the Democratic party. You may wish all we progressives would shut up and go away, but we're Democrats and we're staying to fight and return the party to its roots.

And that's all she wrote!
