So Robert Johnson believes the dem party has moved too far to the left, then claims he’s a “centrist”.
Not quite Robert, you’re on the right.
Should we expect anything less of all MSM at this point?

Our political identity lies more in where we fall on the political spectrum (that spectrum should probably be more complicated than a linear scale) than our race or level of wealth. Are black conservatives any less black? Is a rich socialist any less rich?

Simple answer to the lede question: because the Post is by design and in practice, the voice of the oligarchs.
