Politico wedgies the left: “don't tase us, bro'”

The usual overgeneralizations apply as Politico tries to separate liberals from whatever adherents to the left of that position are calling themselves. They’ve chosen Jacobin as this week’s strawman to separate Sanders Democrats from Warren Democrats.
