The far left thinks they’ve bought the Democratic party, now they want it back.
WASHINGTON (AP) – Liberal powerhouse MoveOn has a message for the “professional election losers” who run the Democratic Party: “We bought it, we own it, we’re going to take it back.”
A scathing e-mail from the head of MoveOn’s political action committee to the group’s supporters on Thursday targets outgoing Democratic National Committee (news – web sites) chairman Terry McAuliffe as a tool of corporate donors who alienated both traditional and progressive Democrats.
“For years, the party has been led by elite Washington insiders who are closer to corporate lobbyists than they are to the Democratic base,” said the e-mail from MoveOn PAC’s Eli Pariser. “But we can’t afford four more years of leadership by a consulting class of professional election losers.”The good news is that the chances of a centrist leading the Democratic ticket anytime in the future just keep getting bleaker and bleaker.
