30. A genteel primary fight, really?

Were you hiding under a rock the entire primary season? Yea, Bernie started out gentile and then he been to think he really had a chance to win after all. Though Hillary never really went after Bernie except on the guns issue (a lot of ammunition remained unfired because she didn't want to turnoff his supporters), Bernie went after Hillary with a vengeance.

Google "Bernie hammers Hillary" and see how many direct hits you get. Sanders hammered away at Hillary Clinton through out most of the primaries on her ties to big corporations and weak progressive credentials. He reminded everyone about her votes for Iraq War. And supporters like you carried Sanders' water, except you guys were much more aggressive and nasty on DU and, more importantly, on other social media like Facebook and Twitter. Sanders' supporters were far,far worse than their candidate. You might have ultimately held your nose and voted for Hillary, but you and many others like you made it virtually impossible for young voters to do the same. Hell, the general election is over and you are still attacking Hillary.

Like I said, I hold you and others like you partially responsible for the fact that Trump will occupy the oval office. However, unlike many of us here you will get exactly what you deserve over the next four years.
