    a corporate Democrat, over the progressive, energetic Brian Schatz in Hawaii is just the most current example of the way Emily's List frequently plays a counter-progressive role in politics.

    Their endorsement of Nikki Tinker, a corporate shill whose campaign against the more progressive Steve Cohen reminded one of something out of Nazi Germany, and their extremely late withdrawal of that endorsement, was probably their worst intervention of all time. But their habit of choosing less progressive women over more progressive women and men is recurrent.

    Like Bloomberg's PAC, they sometimes hit the right note and sometimes the wrong one. In endorsing Nunn, they've probably hit the right note, but that doesn't mean one should contribute to Nunn via EL. I encourage all progressives to find another way to funnel their money to causes they support.
