James Richardson makes an eloquent case for why Nevada Democrats – explicitly including current Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid – should put local needs over partisan ones by making it clear that the American Bridge stalker-PAC would not be given free rein in a hypothetical Las Vegas GOP convention. Unfortunately for Las Vegas business owners and workers, Nevada Democrats will do nothing of the sort. Loyalty flows only uphill in the Democratic party these days: and if any of the little guys get hurt by it, too bad: they shouldn’t have been little to start with*.
Hey, don’t shoot the messenger. I’m not even really mad at American Bridge: stalking candidates is part of the deal, these days. But let’s not pretend that American Bridge’s ultimate masters care anything about the people that get in the way between the Democratic party, and political power…
*But don’t worry: the Democratic party will make up for it by shrieking about me because I didn’t type out ‘little guys and women.’ Well, probably not – but only because they wouldn’t think it would be cost-effective.
