Faux Progressive Dems Endorse Less Progressive Candidate, Fail to Note the Error of their Ways

So, get this: so-called "Progressive Democrats of America" endorse Barack Obama exactly one day after sending out an email admitting that Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton's policies are MORE progressive than Senator Obama's.

But they don't give a shit about that.

Defeating uppity Hillary is so much more important than actually being progressive.

Can you believe it?

No matter who we've supported so far for president, many PDAers have seen firsthand
the enthusiastic, youthful, multiracial movement that has embraced Barack Obama. The
Senator hasn't been totally progressive on the issues, but
our engagement with the inspiring Obama movement--which includes tens of thousands of open-minded newcomers to activism--leaves us hopeful.

Well, "shiny new youth hope youth change shiny new youth hope change shiny new new!" CERTAINLY trumps actual progressive stances on the actual issues, does it not?

Facts, plans -- they're just so so RETRO!!
