With absolutely no hope of becoming the eventual nominee for the Democratic party, like herpes, Sen. Bernie Sanders refuses to go away. I realize that to liken Bernie Sanders to herpes opens me up to possible death threats from some of his most passionate and fervent supporters. But then again, it’s probably a bad idea for Bernie to continue to feed his supporters with lies and the false hope of him becoming the nominee and moving on to crush Donald Trump in the general election.
It’s not going to fucking happen, folks; it’s mathematically impossible. Most insulting, however, is the fact that Bernie knows this. I mean, think about it: if Bernie was serious about becoming the nominee, wouldn’t he have released his tax returns well before now?
Yes, he would. But he’s not stupid at all. With the final round of primary contests fastly approaching on June 7th, why allow the general public to see the intimate details of your tax return when at the end of the day, it doesn’t matter because you’re not going to be president? Even more telling, is that Bernie is now saying that the upcoming Democratic Convention in Philadelphia in July will be “messy.”
No word on whether chairs will be thrown, but it can get ugly.
Bernie Sanders predicted Monday that the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia could be “messy” as he pushed the party to adopt his progressive agenda, but added, “Democracy is not always nice and quiet and gentle.”
The Democratic presidential candidate said in an interview with The Associated Press that his supporters hoped to see a platform at the July convention that reflects the needs of working families, the poor and young people as opposed to one that represents Wall Street and corporate America.
The Vermont senator said he will “condemn any and all forms of violence” but his campaign was bringing in newcomers to the process and first-time attendees of political conventions. He said the Democratic Party could choose to be more inclusive.
“I think if they make the right choice and open the doors to working-class people and young people and create the kind of dynamism that the Democratic Party needs, it’s going to be messy,” Sanders said. “Democracy is not always nice and quiet and gentle but that is where the Democratic Party should go.”
Asked if the convention could be messy, Sanders said: “So what? Democracy is messy. Everyday my life is messy. But if you want everything to be quiet and orderly and allow, you know, just things to proceed without vigorous debate, that is not what democracy is about.”
Messy? A vigorous debate? At the convention? Bernie! Most os us have already fucking voted! Hillary Clinton has three million more votes than Bernie received that says that most of us are just not into you. We’ve already had that debate, sir. Seriously, Bernie, you’re starting to sound like you are a stalker, and part kamikaze pilot. Either way, it’s not a good look, bruh. Please, just be quiet and slide away into our collective political memory with what little dignity you have left.
It’s time to cut the crap, Bernie
Enough with the whining already, Bernie. Be proud of what you’ve accomplished against the strongest of odds, and stop being this petty grumpy-ass-old-man. Between Bernie’s child-like petulance, his supporters who foam at the mouth, and Jeff Weaver’s claim that Donald Trump “speaks the truth,” in his attacks on Hillary Clinton, the Sanders campaign has gotten on my last nerve. And please believe, like Hillary, on this website, I’ve been pretty nice to Sen. Bernie Sanders. I can’t say the same when it comes to his supporters with their Bernie Or Bust nonsense, but you get the point. I’m not saying that he has to drop out of the race. However, I am saying that he needs to calm the fuck down with all the reckless talk that enables the new-age hippies and Mud People on bath salts who believe in his political version of Woodstock. It’s over.
