The Democrats’ (Un)Civil War

It’s the left against the far left. Of course, I always find this sort of thing amusing/infuriating:

A group of moderate Democratic lawmakers sounded the alarm Thursday over the party’s shift to the left, saying the embrace of ultra-liberal policies could endanger their efforts to capture Congress in the November midterm elections and the White House in 2020.

There is nothing “liberal” about them at all, let alone “ultra-liberal.”

This seems related somehow: Hillary says that Brett Kavanaugh will bring back slavery. Gee, that’s not hyperbolic and demagogic at all.
