Escalation: MoveOn rips Hillary donors, defends Pelosi over superdelegates

posted at 6:09 pm on March 27, 2008 by Allahpundit

I should have predicted this yesterday since Obama thrives on small Internet donations, not big bundlers. Ah well. Delightful, and not just for the obvious reasons:

This is pretty outrageous: a group of Clinton-supporting big Democratic donors are threatening to stop supporting Democrats in Congress because Nancy Pelosi said that the people, not the superdelegates, should decide the Presidential nomination.1

It’s the worst kind of insider politics—billionaires bullying our elected leaders into ignoring the will of the voters.

But when we all pool our resources, together we’re stronger than the fat cats. So let’s tell Nancy Pelosi that if she keeps standing up for regular Americans, thousands of us will have her back. And we can more than match whatever the CEOs and billionaires refuse to contribute.

What makes it delightful? Why, the fact that Hillary went face-first into the tank to side with these cretins during the “Betray Us” fiasco, as part of her nutroots charm offensive. Not only did she refuse to denounce the ad when pressed by reporters, she voted no on the Senate resolution in support of Petraeus — which is further than even Obama was willing to go — purely and simply because it repudiated MoveOn by name. What a joy it is to see her ass-kissing of the dregs of the lefty blogosphere repaid by having them turn on her at every opportunity. Remember this, Hillary? I do. Reap the whirlwind, loser:

Update: A good point from KFB in the comments. Since when is the left opposed to billionaire fat cats influencing the party?
