    A true leftist movement would be a great idea. In fact I have dedicated large portions of my life to such an outcome.

    Unfortunately, Sanders’s followers couldn’t create a ham sandwich and in fact this dreary spectacle of yet another noble yet doomed sacrificial lamb will – in fact – delay the start of the building of such a movement by at least a decade.

    So I hope you enjoy the show, really really enjoy the show. It will be all the comfort that you (and I, and millions like us) will have going into the next quarter century.
