Huh…now that progressives are getting ticked off about the draft platform (PDF), it appears the Party is listening to our reaction. And they are reacting in the old-fashioned way…they’re avoiding the problem.
While the draft platform, direct from the party bosses, is still on the Massachusetts Democratic Party servers for the time being (save it while you can!), links to it are off the page. They are were up there for a while, but no longer. The old place on the front page — gone. The convention page — gone. Just plumb gone.
[Update: The draft has not been completely deleted, just well-hidden. It was linked clearly from both pages, and now is buried on page 25 of the 2009 Delegate Guide (PDF), linked from the front page. If you can guess which link to click and wade through a couple dozen pages, you can find it.
There is no way to get to this document from the Convention Page. So it’s still sorta there…if you know where to look.]
