    Put yourself in his shoes: as a politician, you are kinda like a marketer. You want as many people as possible to endorse you. While I'm no fan of Linda Sarsour, I generally can't fault Sanders for appreciating any support he gets right now.

    It occurs to me that this is such a small fault, if it is one at all, compared to the problems with Trump, his main competition so far.

    Sanders is happy to quote someone else's supportive words. Trump would write an adulatory essay for himself and then quote himself as an expert on why everyone should vote for him.

    Not really. It just means he largely has a base of supporters who are starkly lacking in discernment and moral discipline.

    So Bernie Sanders is making the Super Best Friends from South Park? Jesus Christ, Mohammad, Aqua Man, Buddha. Socialism add Lenin. Lenin likes pulling the levers.

    I've never heard of this person, just took a quick read of their wiki page. Am I missing something? What's the issue with her?

    A lot of people on the left ignored it for while or made exceptions that wouldn't be extended to other groups as many do with NOI. After all Black Caucus Congress members hug and shake hands with Louis Farrakhan in private meetings yet scream about King in public.
