    Did you see what Joan Walsh said about us?

    By “us” I mean Berners. She tweeted that most Berners on twitter are FAKE or CRAZY.

    Really.

        27. I question your ordering of her priorities.

        I’m pretty certain it is 3,1,2.

      4. Joan Walsh is an idiot

      And she took a beating on twitter for her comments.

        5. I think you've confused "took a beating" with "got a lot of ignored mentions"

        Twitter is nothing but a lot of people talking past each other.  The idea that there’s some kind of group consensus, on any subject, is just silly.

        28. Sure looks that way

        Just another sign of a declining career. She’s slowly being reduced to becoming just another mouthpiece for the talking points of the day, courtesy of David Brock. Group think ftw.

      7. As long as they can cling to their privilege, the establishment won't change

      “When a creature has developed into one thing, he will choose death rather than change into his opposite.”

      The party can keep losing the House, Governorships, and state legislatures, forever, and they’ll still prosper.

      This year we see them as having lost the Senate again, and now the Presidency, but they are still living in luxury. Some functionaries might now have to dip their toes in the semi-real world, but I’m guessing many have a long list of contacts to reach out to.

      It actually helps them being out of power, as they can portray themselves as besieged, and always in need of emergency fund raising, and having to write desperate appeals.

      And of course that way they never have to answer why they didn’t have a vote on the actual parts of the party platform. They can only claim that they can’t chew gum and walk for so long.

        24. yes

        I get very frustrated by the commonly expressed idea that “the Dems” just don’t understand why they are losing.  Of course they understand.  They are worthless parasites, not mentally challenged.  I am sure that their average SAT scores are in the stratosphere.

        They are all people with careers, and those careers are absolutely dependent upon corporate money flowing to campaigns, think tanks, lobbying firms, consulting firms and “public” advocacy organizations.  If the ideas of Bernie Sanders were ever to become law, every last one of those careers will be dead — kaput, with no hope of ever coming back.  Put an end to big money in politics and suddenly there are no more careers in politics beyond the salary paid to public officials.  That is the catastrophe that these people fear, and “Russia” is the metaphorical manifestation of it in their mendacious efforts to stay afloat in this unpredictable era of Reality TV Politics.

        Hell, even the politicians themselves can make more money after getting thrown out of office for much less work.

        Our problems with the current power structure do not stem from the apparatchiks misunderstanding of the voters.  They stem from a system that puts on a Punch and Judy show for our entertainment that a shrinking percentage of the public is taking seriously.

         

        By the way, Joan Walsh is even more ridiculous than most of the Hillary Hacks who get “published” in the Safely OK Left media platforms.  She may be mentally challenged at that.

      Well, that would be the excuse I would make if I were her!

      9. Joan Walsh is a career Hillbot

      She hated Obama and his supporters as much in 2008 as she hates Bernie and his supporters now. The only difference is she was able to let her anti-Barry hate go after the 2008 primaries, after somebody finally clued her in that he also played for Team DLC.

      Bernie, on the other horn, has never played for the Al From squad, so he’s still a viable target for PUMA obsession.

      Fuck the DLC, Third Way, and Emily's List. They have proven themselves to be a threat to all life on Earth.

      10. Never heard of her.

      We can thank the rich for one thing - times are changing due to the silent depression in the working class. I don't think the rich will be happy with the changes, but they forced it upon themselves through greed and avarice.

      As a cartoon rabbit that’s preoccupied with stealing breakfast cereal from children, I find the accusation of being fake and crazy quite offensive.

      18. When it comes right down to it

      Walsh is just another run of the mill Dem. I’ll not shed one tear if we ever get a true Progressive 3rd Party and she’s NO part of it!!!

      19. Ever since Her decided to run for president, Her fan club has greeted any

      criticism with intense, visceral hatred.  They absolutely detest anyone who dares to criticize her or support anyone else.  Their insane hatred of Sanders himself – calling him a  racist, a woman-hater, a hypocrite because he & Jane bought a vacation house after 50 years of work (a house that cost less than 3 hours’ pay for Hillary), lying about his record, and of course insulting his liberalism – exposed them as lying, evil, Machiavellian hypocrites, and drove millions of young vters away from Hillary.  And now that they placed Drumpf in the white House, they are doubling down on the lies, hatred, and divisiveness.  Despicable.
