Dem Party blogger Braisted wrings his hands over the local service union's local endorsements and tries to portray them as conservative because they weren't embracing his candidates. He also compares them to the other unions in an attempt to single them out for their lack of conformity.
In the end this is convenient, and thus, hollow jabber from a blogger who doesn't protest one iota when President Obama caves to Republican agendas. Yet, he pounces on and pigeonholes, without a second thought, SEIU as conservative for refusing to endorse candidates who have not defended their interests. Other than these endorsements, Braisted fails to demonstrate that the union frames their ideals conservatively. Look, Braisted is bent on supporting Karl Dean and the candidates most likely to advance Dean's career, because we're closing in on election time and that's just what he does as a party wonk and consultant, even at the expense of more razor-sharp reason.
UPDATE: Samantha Yeargin contends that my reference to Braisted as a Dem Party blogger is disingenuous.
