Calling Martin O'Malley a DLCer is as ridiculous as calling Bernie Sanders a gun nut.

Governor O'Malley has been a champion of progressive policy for years. He's been there on LGBT rights, immigration, education, gun control, criminal justice, abolishing the death penalty, and taking care of veterans.

I'm sorry he said some less than flattering things about Sanders, but Governor O'Malley is not a DLCer or a centrist by any stretch of the imagination.

I, for one, welcome the arrival of Kentucky's new Governor-elect.

We did it, my friends. Don't let the media lie to you: the Kentucky gubernatorial election was a great victory for progressives.

As I'm sure you're all aware, I've hated the Affordable Care Act since the day our spineless party proved incapable of implementing single-payer so many years ago. Our corporate-owned party sought to throw millions of Americans to the for-profit health insurance industry.

Consequently, I praise our unlikely progressive ally in Governor-elect Bevin. Though the corporate stooge Beshear constructed what many consider to be one of the great success stories of the Americans for Corporations Act, Bevin has promised to liberate Kentuckians from this tyranny by the thousands shortly into his tenure.

While this devastating blow to our corporate shill-in-chief's signature domestic legislation remains the primary victory of this election, a secondary achievement cannot be ignored.

Such a victory would not have been possible without the tireless efforts of our progressive allies to expose the corrupt DNC and its Prime Shillstress, DWS, for what they are. Together, we showed these corrupt, corporate masterswe wouldn't stand for their status quo puppet Conway or the health insurance industry.

Here's to more progressive victories in 2016!

Get over it. Seriously, get over it.

Look, I'm deeply sorry some of you got your feelings hurt by proxy a few months ago, but just get over it.

I'm really tragically upset that some people sick of seeing their friends and family butchered used some harsh words and demanded to be taken seriously, but get over it.

I'm breaking down in tears that you're still having a sad over your candidate being inconvenienced a few months ago, but maybe you should take like him and get over it.

I'm curled up in bed sobbing that Clinton wasn't confronted the exact same way that Sanders was in Seattle, but get over it.

Sure, statistically, by the time I finish writing this, a black American will have been killed by community or police violence, but we'll get to that after we thoroughly address your months-old sads.
