"The Democrats used their meeting to tell a richer, more expansive national story, one more or less in tune with the party's platform and aspirations." Are you kidding me?
Both parties are lying through their teeth about the future they have in store for us. The only difference between the two is that the Republicans also have to lie about the past eight years. If the Democrats had been in the White House the past eight years they'd be the ones lying about it.
They're both frauds. But now that The Nation is a Democratic magazine instead of a progressive one, the Democrats "tell a richer, more expansive national story." Good grief.
