When progressive selective memory attacks: Michael Moore gerrymanders around reality

2016 is just under way but we already might have a front-runner for the “Selective Memory of the Year” recipient.

The wind-up:

And the pitch:

In 1996, during his first run for office, in the Illinois State Senate, Obama defeated his former political mentor Alice Palmer by successfully challenging her nominating petitions and forcing her off the ballot, effectively ending her career. A few years later, Illinois Democrats, after toiling in the minority in the Senate, gerrymandered the state to produce a Democratic majority. While drafting the new political map, Obama helped redraw his own district northward to include some of Chicago’s wealthiest citizens, making the district a powerful financial and political base that he used to win his U.S. Senate seat, a few years later.

If we’re to go by the rule of thumb from one of America’s most capitalist anti-capitalists, Obama must have been a closet Republican back then.
