All the New Yorkers I know, native born

are voting for Bernie. Don't trust Clintons.
Jewish dem-socialist-activists going way back.

As the junior Senator from Vermont, Bernie armed the Gangs of New York

and laughed about it with Fidel Castro.

I hope there is a Ghost of Interventions Past

'splain a few things to her.

Especially hard for the thousands who are dead to move on.

Here is a bit

I accessed through the Opinion link at the site:

Charles M. Blow
There are two prominent features of the Democratic Party’s presidential selection process that are thoroughly undemocratic and undermine faith in the party: superdelegates (which favor Hillary Clinton) and caucuses (which favor Bernie Sanders).

As the New York Times editorial board explained: “Superdelegates are party bigwigs — 712 Democratic leaders, legislators, governors and the like. They can vote for any candidate at the nominating convention, regardless of whether that candidate won the popular vote. These unpledged delegates make up 30 percent of the 2,382 delegates whose votes are needed to win the nomination, and could thus make all the difference.”

Let’s start there. Superdelegates, whose votes are not bound by the millions of individual voters, make up nearly a third of the delegates that would be required to win the nomination. That, on its face, is outrageous.

It’s no surprise that superdelegates were created by establishment elites to increase their own power. Superdelegates were invented by a Democratic rule change in the early 1980s after the nomination of George McGovern in 1972 and the devastating loss of Jimmy Carter to Ronald Reagan in 1980, precisely to help the establishment prevent the nomination of insurgent candidates of whom the establishment disapproved. (Sanders is nothing if not an insurgent candidate.)

Here's a comment I got

And Bernie has the benefit of an adoring cult that will lap up any and all republican shit that they can fit into their insulated white little mouths. No repercussions for them when Trump or Cruz get elected.

Not quite a label, but a mouthful

If it were Bernie with all the superdelrgates I'd wager

he'd be asking them to get off their high horses.
