WAIT, ISN'T BERNIE ENGAGING IN McCARTHYISM...:

Halperin: Clinton World Engaged in 'McCarthyite Tactics' on Sanders And It Backfired (David Rutz, September 18, 2015, Free Beacon)

"McCarthyite tactics" by David Brock's pro-Hillary Clinton Super PAC Correct The Record on Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) turned out to be the "worst of both worlds" for the Clinton campaign, Morning Joe panelist Mark Halperin said Friday.

The Huffington Post reported Correct the Record circulated an email trying to tie Sanders with far-left Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn of the United Kingdom, who has praised the late Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez and called the killing of 9/11 mastermind Osama bin Laden a "tragedy." 


...when he calls himself a socialist?

And isn't he the one who tied himself to Corbyn?

Bernie Sanders: 'I Am Delighted' By Jeremy Corbyn's Victory (Daniel Marans, 9/12/15,The Huffington Post)

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) said he is "delighted" that the Labour Party elected Jeremy Corbyn its leader.
U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) hailed the election of Jeremy Corbyn to the leadership of the United Kingdom's Labour Party as a promising development in the global fight against inequality. 

"At a time of mass income and wealth inequality throughout the world, I am delighted to see that the British Labour Party has elected Jeremy Corbyn as its new leader," Sanders, a Democratic presidential candidate, said in a statement emailed to The Huffington Post Saturday. "We need leadership in every country in the world which tells the billionaire class that they cannot have it all. We need economies that work for working families, not just the people on top."

Sanders' appreciation of Corbyn is mutual.

It's all well and good not to be associated with your own politics, but it's a tough act to pull off.
