The Crowded Progressive Caucus - Yahoo! News: "The Nation -- What will be the largest of the ideological caucuses in the new House Democratic majority?
Why, of course, it must be the 'centrists' affiliated with the Democratic Leadership Council's 'New Democrat Coalition.' Yes, that's got to be the case because all the commentators at the Wall Street Journal keep saying that centrists were the big winners on Tuesday.
Well, then, it must be the more conservative Democrats who identify themselves as 'Blue Dogs.' Surely, that's the answer because all the folks on Fox News keeping talking about them.
The largest ideological caucus in the new House Democratic majority will be the Congressional Progressive Caucus, with a membership that includes New York's Charles Rangel, Michigan's John Conyers, Massachusetts' Barney Frank and at least half the incoming chairs of House standing committees."
The MSM better break out their newest GOP talking points because their old ones are wearing pretty thin.
How about the Senate?
The caucus will need an infusion of new members -- not because those associated with it lost elections Tuesday but because they won. CPC members Bernie Sanders of Vermont and Sherrod Brown of Ohio will be leaving the House to become U.S. Senators. Interestingly, the two members of the "Blue Dog" caucus who ran for the Senate, Hawaii's Ed Case and Tennessee's Harold Ford, both lost.
Whoops! Those Progressives stomping all over the MSM's crazy GOP talking points everywhere you turn...
Welcome to a the real world. A world where facts will be used LIBERALLY...
