The last thing we want to do is being impolite to entrenched Democrat power players.

It's very important to remember that A LOT of the supposed bad behavior on the side of Sanders supporters is totally made up. High profile articles based on two Facebook comments, people doing shit like throwing chairs when that never happened. Every article seems to have something.

Sanders himself is bothering me more and more for certain aspects of his approach, but Clinton supporters (IN MY EXPERIENCE) are a hundred times worse than Sanders supporters. Tom Watson, Joan Walsh, Jonathan Chait, Sady Doyle ... they're doing way worse than anyone I've seen on the Sanders side.

To summarize:

My favourite is Peter Daou who threatens a lawsuit against literally anyone on Twitter for bringing up his Lebanese right-wing death squad past.

so i guess your answer to my question is yes, you absolutely could be more condescending.

You'd think if the general public wanted Bernie so badly he woulda done a wee bit better in the open primaries.

Maybe it's a Broward County situation and they all punched the wrong chad.

I don't know. I can't tell what happened through my pants suit colored glasses. If only there was somebody steeped in reality

Liberal groups such as Credo, Moveon.org and RootsAction have posted online petitions calling for Wasserman Schultz to resign from the DNC.

Credo was angered by an interview the DNC chair gave in January to The New York Times in which she accused young women of “complacency” about reproductive rights. The liberal group charged that she has “repeatedly failed to act in the best interests of progressives and the Democratic Party.”

To date, Credo's petition has more than 87,000 signatures, which is 13,000 short of its 100,000 signature goal.

A petition from Moveon.org to remove Wasserman Schultz, who the group says has “ulterior motives” in the race, has more than 77,000 signatures. RootsAction surpassed its goal of 35,000 signatures on a petition to remove Wasserman Schultz.

Liberal commentator Van Jones said this week on CNN that he’d prefer Reince Priebus, Republican National Committee chairman, over Wasserman Schultz after a “leadership failure” for Democrats.

“Debbie, who should be the umpire, who should be the marriage counselor, is coming in harder for Hillary Clinton than she is for herself. That is malpractice,” Jones told CNN's Brooke Baldwin Wednesday.

And Mika Brzezinski, the co-host on MSNBC's “Morning Joe,” said the DNC chair should “step down,” condemning the party’s treatment of Sanders since he entered the race.

“This has been very poorly handled from the start. It has been unfair, and they haven’t taken him seriously, and it starts, quite frankly, with the person we just heard speaking. It just does. You know that,” Brzezinski said about Wasserman Schultz.
This really is a shame

Time for the next thread, folks. Can I suggest that we move away from this BigMacPhisto vs. everyone else thing and accept that he's not changing your mind and you're not changing his?
