Harman Smokes Winograd

I understand folks are disappointed that Bill Halter lost his bid to unseat Sen. Blanche Lincoln (D-AK). But the news wasn't all bad yesterday. Marcy Winograd -- best known for advocating the dissolution of Israel and implying that Henry Waxman had dual loyalties -- was soundly defeated in a primary challenge to Rep. Jane Harman (D-CA). Harman won by nearly 18 percentage points -- roughly in line with her 2008 results against Winograd. Contrary to what GOP talking points might have you believe, rabid anti-Israelism will not, in fact, get you elected in a Democratic primary (in fact, all the evidence shows that it turns Democratic voters off).

Schraud, you are clueless about what Winograd is "best known" for, and about what was at stake in that primary election. Winograd is a peace activist and Harman a warmonger. Winograd was not tied to corporate interests; Harman is their puppet. Harman lied her way to victory in the primary, Winograd fought sincerely and let the world know about Harman's pro-war, anti-civil liberties, pro-Bush stances.

What did Harman lie about?
