The Harman Resignation
Jane Harman to resign from Congress effective tomorrow(?). Going to run the Woodrow Wilson Institute in DC. Hm. Interesting.
Especially interesting to me is the momentousness of the news to the "lefty" blogosphere -- the story is everywhere -- and the fact that there is literally no support whatever among the blog proprietors for Harman's two-time primary challenger, Marcy Winograd -- a real live, dyed in the wool anti-war progressive. It's almost as if they hate her and would prefer just about anyone else, including a near clone of Jane Harman in Janice Hahn. It's amazing.
Not surprising, though.
It seems that actual progressive leftists really aren't welcome in the Insider's Club of A-Listers, Dem Consultants and Libertarians posing as "lefties" in the blogosphere.
I can see it now. They'll do almost anything to deny Winograd the election -- assuming she runs.
