Dems telling Bernie he’s lost, so pipe down

berniesanders

AT: Any doubts that the Democrats are the top-down party and the GOP is the bottom-up party should be resolved by the latest round of criticism telling Bernie Sanders to stop behaving like anything other than a token opposition candidate, intended to provide cover for the inauguration of the successor to the throne at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. After all, the only reason socialist/independent Sanders was allowed to run for the Democrats’ nomination was that he was expected to lose gracefully.

He hasn’t stayed on script.  In fact, he’s been having the time of his life, and attracting wild support from Democrats as outraged at their party’s establishment as Trump supporters are at the GOP.  And Bernie, who has been a nonentity in the Senate, never taken seriously by the Democrats with whom he nominally caucused, suddenly finds himself leading a movement that, however simplistic and nonsensical, gives the alienated base exactly what it wants: revenge and free stuff (they hope).

  1. I am intrigued by the poll that says 50% of Bernie supporters will vote Trump… Rather than Hillary…

  2. Hillary got more than twice as many votes in NY than Trump did, so even the bern kids wouldn’t be enough.

  3. Only 14% of the total population of NY voted.
    (2,647,333 of 19.8 million)

    So conclusions are a tad tenuous, at best.

    izlamo delenda est …

  4. In any event, the fact that a self-described socialist, an adherent to an alien, parasitic, mendacious philosophy, is running in the Demonrat primary should be setting off klaxons in the minds of the few remaining Americans with some semblance of mental processes remaining.

    Ah, well …

  5. I realize that Moe. That was my point.
    Winning a state that will end up yielding no electoral college votes is not a big deal, unless the goal is something other than winning the presidency.

  6. I am intrigued by the staging of this photo. It makes it look like an image of Barack on the poster is ecstatically enjoying himself in Bernie’s rump as Bernie is bending over (slightly). Was this intended as some kind of subliminal message?

  7. Even though NY is overwhelmingly D in the primary, when all those I’s and D’s who would have voted Trump but couldn’t because of the registration deadline, vote in the GE along with all those Sanders supporters who are voting for Trump if Killery gets the nomination — who knows what the numbers will be.

  8. AA, pointing out that people far to the left of Hillary support Trump sounds a lot like an argument for voting for Hillary as the lesser of evils.
