    LOL at anyone who thinks that Sanders is a true progressive on any front other than the financial one.

And if you can't see what's wrong with that, then you needed your head examined.
    This Washington Post article offered a clarification:

    “If you run as a Democrat, you’re a Democrat,” Sanders said. “Some Democrats are progressive, and some Democrats are not.”

    Sanders qualified this by saying he didn't know much about Ossoff, so perhaps it should be taken at face value — that he truly doesn't know enough to make a decision about him.
    I didn't know who Ossoff was before this, but it sounds like Bernie should (and it's disappointing that he doesn't).

    As far as supporting a Pro-Life Democrat goes... do you think the Republican is going to protect women's rights?

    Isn't that all the more reason to support a Democrat who would?

    Ossoff and Mello are running in different elections. Mello is running for mayor of Omaha Nebraska, and Ossoff is running for congress in Georgia.

    If you're asking why Bernie would choose to support a mayoral candidate over a congressional one... I have no idea.

    Tom Perez greatly regrets this goodwill tour.

    If Ossoff wants Bernie's endorsement, he needs to be more of a strong progressive Democrat like Assad superfan (and longtime opponent, now "reformed", of gay rights) Tulsi Gabbard.

    Somebody needs to update this. Are there any countries Trump hasn't offended?

    That seems a bit of a strong a statement for a few execution rulings. Is there anything about them that's not standard for the Supreme Court? (Serious Question)

    On that note, the workers' party president signed a (worthless) executive order to dismantle Dodd-Frank: http://thehill.com/policy/finance/32...rs-at-treasury

    Also, if Democrats don't vote in favour of paying for the wall (that Mexico isn't going to pay for anymore), Ttump admin threatens to defund healthcare: https://www.washingtonpost.com/power...=.52e104a6fe7b

    Then he counted how many days were left to a hundred, realized he was still on his fingers, and started to panic.

    Seems like a pretty irrational ultimatum considering Republicans have been getting pissed upon for attempting to screw over healthcare.
