Democrats not running from the S word: http://theweek.com/speedreads/569343/want-know-difference-between-democrat-socialist-dont-ask-dnc-chair I chortle, and I appreciate the conflation…. But good grief, she must be obtuse. There are degrees, and these could have been unpacked simply for the sake of HRC / the party. Thing is, “Democrats” are supposed to believe in socializing costs in pursuit of social goals…. A guy like Sanders thinks pursuit of these goals requires the dictate of practice and production.
A contrast for its lack of outrage: http://www.twincities.com/localnews/ci_28565889/germany-shelves-nazi-crimes-probe-minneapolis-man Not that I disagree. Now, pursuit of him is dropped ostensibly because he’s medically unfit for trial at his advanced age. But the more material thing to be observed is the guy was foremost a Ukrainian anti-Stalinist. Uh, can you fault him for that? But by virtue of the enemy of my enemy is my friend thing it aligned him with the Germans at a time when a Ukrainian partisan could run wild a bit. And yeah, he had a record of co-mingling with the German war machine in eastern Europe during those years, this which included village sweeps; ie, burning them to the ground. Not nice, but I think there’s a truthful case to be made that one can be party to that as a 20 something soldier in a continental land war, and not be a war criminal in the way the rest of those SS perverts were. And that, maybe it isn’t the type of guy you prosecute for being on a losing side 70 years removed.

There’s a premise here that’s rejectable. http://blogs.mprnews.org/newscut/2015/07/why-women-senators-are-more-effective-than-men/ Thing is Sen. Amy isn’t effective. Popular, yes…. but that speaks to something else.
