He’s gotten the freest ride a top-tier presidential candidate has ever gotten. The freest, bar none

So Bernie’s still at it, telling George Stephanopoulos on Sunday that he thinks it’s not impossible for him to get 70 percent of the vote in every remaining state. Impossible. If anyone’s likely to hit 70 anywhere, it’s Hillary Clinton in Puerto Rico. Maybe Sanders can do it in the Dakotas, but even that seems ludicrous, because those states have primaries, not caucuses, and he’s never won a primary by that kind of margin except in his home state.


But I don’t know a single person whose opinions I really value, and I include here Sanders supporters I know, who takes these polls seriously. There’s one simple reason Sanders polls better against Trump than Clinton does, which is that no one (yet) knows anything negative about him. He’s gotten the freest ride a top-tier presidential candidate has ever gotten. The freest, bar none.

While he’s all but called Clinton a harlot, she’s barely said a word about him, at least since the very early days of the contest. And while Republicans have occasionally jibed at him, like Lindsey Graham’s actually quite funny remark that Sanders “went to the Soviet Union on his honeymoon and I don’t think he ever came back,” in far more serious ways, Republican groups have worked to help Sanders weaken Clinton.

That would change on a dime if he became the nominee. I don’t think they’d even have to go into his radical past, although they surely would. Michelle Goldberg of Slate has written good pieces on this. He took some very hard-left and plainly anti-American positions. True, they might not matter to anyone under 45, but more than half of all voters are over 45. And then, big-P politics aside, there’s all that farkakte nonsense he wrote in The Vermont Freeman in the early ’70s about how we should let children touch each others’ genitals and such. Fine, it was 40-plus years ago but it’s out there, and it’s out there.

This is what sane rational people look like.

Bernie would be NOWHERE without the DNC.

No access to campaign resources. No access to data. No access to voter rolls. No access to debates. No access to fundraising. Etc etc etc. This was decades of work by the Democratic party, and they handed it all over to a non-Democrat.

The DNC bent over backwards for a candidate who not only wasnt a Democrat, but was also at times hostile towards the Democratic party i.e. suggested a primary challenge to Obama in 2012.

So, when does Bernie return the favor?

Here's how Dem election 2016 will play out...

Hillary will win the nomination. Bernie will not only endorse her, he will hit the campaign trail as well, along with Obama, Biden, Liz Warren, Sherrod Brown, and a united army of surrogates. Meanwhile, every sane, rational Hillary and Bernie supporter will unite to defeat the Tangerine Terror; Donald Trump. The haters and disruptors (a small minority) will go back to assuming their libertarian personas because they were never Democrats anyway. Hillary then shellacs Trump at the debates. Our allies unite against the rightwing hate, bigotry, misogyny, and racism, which in turn energizes the base and results in winning the WH and taking back the senate. Same as it ever was.

"Im scared for my family," Ms. Lange said. "Scared for my kids".

Apparently Team Bernie doesnt think its their problem.

Bernie fans always claim that there are millions of angry people in America...

Yet they dont believe that anger may occasionally lead to violence? Is that really so hard to connect the dots?

In a strange twist, a call for "revolution" has led to political violence. This is unprecedented. Who would have thought?

So to recap: millions of Americans are extremely angry but any violence that occurs is obviously Hillary's fault because Berners can obviously control their anger. Also, "revolution revolution revolution" but political violence isnt the Berners fault because everyone knows historically revolutions never result in violence.

Oh, and Debbie and the DNC are "evil" even though Bernie Sanders would be nowhere without them, NOWHERE. They gave an Independent senator the keys to decades of data, resources, and voter rolls, and Bernie thanks them by smearing them and suing them.

This embarrassing campaign cant be over soon enough.

Burlington Got BERNED

Burlington College announced today that it will close on May 27 after it found itself unable to recover from “the crushing weight of the debt” incurred under Jane O’Meara Sanders, the college’s former president and wife of Bernie Sanders.

At the end of 2010, Ms. Sanders took out $10 million in loans on behalf of Burlington College to purchase a 32-acre swathe of land from the Roman Catholic diocese, which put the land up for sale to help cover the costs of a $17 million sexual-abuse settlement.
