you started this brush fire, Bernie. contain your bros.
Bernie like Cruz had a choice to make, the best choice was a luke-warm endorsement, like Rubio
not a spit in the face Cruz style speech or a sell your once pure soul full-throated enforcement

But Bernie sells out, and now some will have to consider one that will not sell out and one (two) that have not already sold out
Elizabeth Warren damages her reputation sucking up to Corporatists, Globalists and Goldman Sach bought and paid for puppets

just watching the news
a Clinton spokesperson said the real story here is that the Russians may have come in here and tried to manipulate the outcome of our electoral process,
then the newswoman asked him if it not important that the DNC was trying to manipulate the electoral process, his answer was, not really, lets talk about the Russians

there you have it

With all this excitement about leaked emails and conspiracies, it's sometimes to hard to remember that, Clinton outperformed Sanders in the popular vote as well as pledged delegates.

Unless you'd like to make the claim that the popular votes were rigged as well.

I heard that UFO's beamed in aliens to brainwash Bernie supporters right before going in to vote.

Without the aliens, Bernie had this in the bag.

And the other thing that seems to fail everyone asking questions to DNC people, and DNC people answering is that this was about 5 or 6 emails out of thousands, or 10's of thousands, and it was a few people that put forward some shady things, but they were never acted on. So it tells me that, yes, there will be some nonsense that happens along the way, but the DNC itself never actually DID any of the things that were mentioned.
Yet this is somehow proof that the whole thing was rigged from the start? So infuriating.

Thank you for posting that, because you can see just how ridiculous this all is.
Again, no proposition that was floated was ever actually acted upon.

Second, Jeff Weaver is kind of an asshole. I yelled it at my TV many times.
That shows not "conspiracy"

Third, i do think that the Sanders campaign was probably a bit of a mess, in contrast to Clinton's. I don't see how stating this means anything.

And the Sanders not being a Democrat thing. Well... He wasn't. And he stole info from Clinton servers. Then sued the DNC about it. And would give very coy answers in the press when asked if he was reallly a Democrat...
I could see a political committee, committed to electing Democrats, would find this troubling.

We are beyond the looking glass now. Truth, facts and what actually happened don't matter anymore.

we are indeed living in a post-truth era. John Oliver showed an interview with Gingrich where they are showing him the FBI crime stats and how they are declining. He said, well, thats not true to the American people. The truth is how they feel about it. And I'll take feelings over statistics any day...

yep...

Well someone's doing the raping...

This ^ is the only way the Republicans stay alive in its current form. Throw enough shit on the wall, see what sticks, and then once the Republicans are in the WH they then can point to facts and say "see? What we're doing is working." Regardless of the fact they were already going down.

We love the poorly educated.

Interesting take. Not sure the FBI was dismissive, but I do think the FBI director made a calculated decision much like Chief Justice Roberts did on the 'Affordable' Care Act ruling.

( Dismissive, manipulating, and contorting might describe some longtime Mrs. Clinton diehards, though. Or DWS, for that matter )

And 90% of them will be voting for Hillary.

As we are told in here, not all Bernie supporters are total assholes booing Bernie himself. You shouldn't pretend they all hate her.

I can't believe I'm hearing this third candidate, voting my conscience crap again. Have people forgotten about 2000? Do those 100,000 Nader supporters in Florida feel better about their conscience today? I mean, the only consequences were a spectacular failure of a war and the biggest economic crisis in a generation, but sure, feel good about challenging the two-party system by all means.

because dws stepping down isn't a big deal, and neither is her immediately being hired by hrc. if this were a non-issue, the dnc would dig their heels in and dws would still be giving her speech this week instead of having every single public appearance cancelled.
