Mystified

I have watched with dismay and puzzlement the effort by a large group of democratic senators to subvert Obama 's major Iranian diplomatic initiative. There is only one rational explanation - viz that they are in the pocket of AIPAC and Netanyahu. But why on earth is my Senator Hagen part of this cabal?

Does anyone have any actual information?

No insights here on Hagen et al.Just wanted to point you and your readers to a depressing article that makes clear how the American Right has actually managed to turn the immiseration of the working class into a political advantage for them: http://robertreich.org/post/73471886666#

Can anyone tell me how to cut and paste a URL on an IPhone?

I'm going to assume you mean the reich link in the mesnenor comment. I.e.,
http://robertreich.org/post/73471886666#
reich link here. I've inserted it as a live link that you just be able to tap or tap and hold. I hope.

Blogger.com makes it difficult by how it presents comments. (If it were a link in an email or some other kind of web page, then merely pressing-and-holding would wake up a menu of options (open/copy/cancel). But with this you have to press and hold; you then get a selection box that incorporates the whole comment. You then carefully drag the anchor points the define only the link. Then hit the copy option. Etc.

David thank you. Little by little I am learning my way around this new toy.
