5. You know nothing. She has nothing to do with Dolan other than that they're both

Catholics, like Biden and the Kennedys and millions of other Catholic progressives. Unless you're an anti-Catholic bigot, there's no reason to speak about her that way. She recognizes, as you clearly don't, that the Dems invited Dolan to their convention because the GOP was pretending that Dolan's blessing at their convention was equivalent to an endorsement. Now Dolan has been neutralized. This is a good thing.

Simone Campbell is one of the Nuns on a Bus that deliberately scheduled their campaign to COUNTER the Bishop's campaign against the birth control mandate and to speak out on the needs of the poor and oppressed. Her group is involved in strong efforts to speak out against the Paul Ryan budget.

If she is a hate monger because she's Catholic, then so is every other Catholic on DU. Are you really trying to go there? Do you want to bully and insult all progressive Catholics into leaving the party?
