    Well, Mike, what then does it say about you and your team that Bernie got his ass kicked by these knuckleheads and their wisdom?

    Pretty much that youse guys are grossly incompetent and nobody has the least interest in having you in charge of anything.

      Went from 3% to 45%, against the massive Democratic Machine and the Clintons, and who are you saying got kicked?

      The JV High School team shouldn’t force the supposed World Champions of everything on their home turf to scramble.

    Uh, MIke,

    You really need to quit linking to anything from the Naked Capitalism crowd. Take a long look at the “Some of my best friends are not going to vote for Clinton” post. To say it’s self contradictory is being downright generous. To say it is outright stupid is, unfortunately, a lot closer to the mark.

    I don’t mind that you like Bernie – I like him myself to the tune of thousands of dollars in support down through the years. It’s that you are choosing posts about him that simply don’t make anything like sense that bothers me. He ran a good race. He lost. The posts we need to see are about what he’ll do next, not more dead-ender crap.
