8. Are you even gonna bother refuting what the author says?
Jerry was on "State of the Union" blaming democrats for not being willing to cut entitlements. Thats fucked up nonsense. I like Jerry as a person as much as anyone else but hes become a total centrist in recent years. Pointing out that Jerry Brown is flat-out wrong about a lot of stuff has nothing to do with "bashing democrats" its about calling out any politician when they lie. FireDogLake is awesome and anyone who reads it on a regular basis knows that they dont play partisan games, they are progressives and they call out anyone who is harming the cause of progressivism regardless of their party.
