This, ladies and gentlemen, is a veteran progressive activist’s recounting of how and why we knew Obama was a fake:
I was surprised and horrified that the DLC, Senators Obama and Hillary endorsed Sen. Lieberman, the closet Republican, when he ran as an Indendent after losing the Democratic primary to Ned Lamont. The Dim Party’s support of Lieberman rather than the somewhat more progressive Democratic Party’s own candidate, Ned Lamont really did more than just about anything to finally rattle my cage. But I still clung with tepid faith to the hope that the Dem. Party could be reformed, so I was still surprised – though not shocked – when no leading Democrat stood up for our right to hear from all the candidates throughout the debates of ’08 when the corporate media decided that Kucinich would be excluded from the last couple of debates. When Kucinich dropped out of the 08 primary – I finally defected and joined a 3rd party.
