David Sirota's blog entry about Rep. Melissa Bean's snubbing by Labor Groups in her district means that without their support, she loses her seat come November. However, she and Rahm Emmanuel have gone to the labor movement about that CAFTA vote, saying Bean's vote doesn't mean that labor groups interests will be harmed, and basically, that they should suck it up, pony up the cash and re-elect her.

Excuse me, but unless we start holding sellout Democrats like Bean accountable for their voting records, we get nowhere. And the labor groups are telling that to Ms. Bean - cry them a river, they're telling her.

What good is it to maintain a Democratic majority and we know that better than 50% of them will sell out our interests at the first opportunity? I'd rather have a small number of those we know who will fight for our interests than pad the numbers of Democrats with those DLCers who are nothing more than Republicans in Sheep's clothing.
