"I'm Sick of It"

I've got a new piece, co-written with Peter Daou, up at Blue Nation Review, on the media coverage of Hillary Clinton's visible anger in response to Team Sanders' mendacious attacks on her, and why this may finally be the moment that Sanders can no longer get away with them:
Hillary stepped outside the perfect calibration pundits and reporters demand of her and appeared, just for a moment, the way Bernie is allowed to appear all the time without special comment: Righteously, passionately angry.

We are glad that she did, and glad that there are media outlets who are responding with credibility. It is long past time that Bernie's frontal attack on Hillary's integrity is shown for what it is.

Hillary responded the way she did for a reason. That reason matters. It's because her opponent keeps implying she's corrupt without providing an iota of evidence to support that awful claim.

If it takes Hillary responding the way any person would to finally bring Bernie's actions to light, then we welcome it.

And Hillary? I'm sick of it, too.
