Re: “Anger Management: Sanders Fights for Employees, Except His Own

I don't really think this article is fair. For one thing, the headline is an inaccurate and cheap swipe. Bernie doesn't have an anger management problem, or a short fuse, or whatever. What he does have is a low tolerance for BS (which is one of the reasons why voters like him, incidentally). I also think it's kind of lame to quote a bunch of "unnamed sources."

Speaking as a former Bernie staffer, I can confirm he is not an easy person to work for-- he is very particular and wants things how he wants them-- but I never once felt abused. On the contrary, I always felt really valued and like my hard work was appreciated. Bernie has exacting standards. He doesn't like mistakes. He expects staff to work as hard as he does. If you want to work for Bernie, he sets the bar pretty high. But frankly-- shouldn't he? Bernie is very serious about trying to make our state and country a better place for working families. He wants serious, committed people working for him. Trying to say he's doesn't "practice what he preaches" in terms of workers rights is ridiculous and unsubstantiated editorializing on the part of Mr. Heintz.

Re: “McAllister Says He Hasn’t Decided Whether to Resign

Dalliance is not the same as rape. Sorry. Not even in the same ball park. I don't like Shumlin either, but he is SO not the point here. And to equate "dalliance" with forcing women to have sex with you or else lose their housing and jobs is missing the point entirely. Rape-- whether physically forced or economically coerced-- is rape. It is sexist, wrong, and it's a crime.
