Trashing Their Base

Trashing Their Base

Abby Zimet

It's bad enough that Arkansas' corporate-funded, ever-waffling
Lincoln fought off the challenge by labor-backed, more progressive Bill
Halter - just barely, it must be noted – to the grating tune of headlines like "Lincoln Beats Anger On
the Left," yet. Now the White House is apparently pissing on its base
again by blasting
labor for "flushing $10 million down the toilet on a pointless
exercise." Alas, much good will goes down as well. These guys are
masters of tone deafness.

"Labor isn't an arm of the Democratic Party - it exists to
support working families." - AFL-CIO spokesman Eddie Vale


Independent media has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies.   Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook.  Never before has independent media been more endangered.  If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support our critical Winter campaign now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing.
