A fine post at Dkos by Kossack Turkana turned up a ton of information about Senator Clinton I hadn’t seen previously. The diary itself was about the constant hateful spew of hot air aimed at Senator Clinton. A stream of hatred towards Senator Clinton appears to have become a standard feature on many Democratic or Progressive websites as she continues to gain in the polls.
The diary title says it best: Every insult about Hillary can be excused (So please keep it up.) She wrote this in response to another diary, with over 600 comments, called: Everything about Hillary can be excused. (So please shut up.)
Turkana offers a host of actual facts as well as her opinion. Both diaries would be worth reading.
As a sample of stuff I did not know about Senator Clinton’s voting record, here’s a list of 100% voting record ratings from various organizations as provided by Turkana, who researched much of it from ProjectVoteSmart:
Planned Parenthood, NARAL Pro-Choice America, National Family Planning & Reproductive Health Assocation, The Humane Society of the United States, Fund for Animals, Society for Animal Protective Legislation, American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, Animal Protection Institute, National Trust for Historic Preservation, Leadership Conference on Civil Rights, National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, League of United Latin American Citizens, Human Rights Campaign, National Education Association, National School Boards Association.
These are just the first 15 organizations. There are 54 more on the 100% list at Turkana’s post. Then there are 10 more with a 90% or more rating. There are a ton additional statistics in this post.
I found her voting record ratings very interesting. Even if you are one of the true bone deep Clinton-haters, this is a compilation of facts worth reading. By the way, I am not a Clinton supporter, volunteer or staffer. I do like facts.
