    Congrats, DF! So today’s primaries turned out as expected. The GOP looks stuck with their racist woman-hater, and Bernie better feel the math ASAP and focus his attacks on Trump, not Hillary.

    effing lessons for effing dem establishment

    1. No more effing indies on dem tickets. let ’em effing run on their effing own bs.

    2. No more effing caucus cockamamie.

    3. No more effing ‘open’ primaries. It’s your own party’s primary, ffs.

      Now, what evidence do you have that Dem voting establishment actually learns from their experiences? I haven’t seen much of this kind of learning in the past 7+ years.

      GM amk.

      Here’s what Sanders has to say about that.

      This is the worst Presidential campaign of my lifetime, cannot believe so many unicorns who have no idea on earth how to govern have so much angry white support.

      Gonna be nauseous until PBO, VP, FLOTUS and SLOTUS are on the campaign trail.

      AMK, I sincerely hope Democrats will learn these lessons! First, it makes sense no sense to me that people who are not Democrats or Republicans are allowed to participate in choosing a presidential nominee of the Democratic Party or the Republican Party. Second, I am strongly in favor of doing away with the caucuses! Caucuses favor activist with plenty of free time to spare to attend them. As far as I am concerned, caucuses are not democratic representatives of the majority of voters in the states where they are held.

      My prediction: BS will fight for open primaries in the platform. And the stupid Dems, always chasing elusive voters, may cave. These Berniebrats didn’t register, will never vote in midterms until they effing grow up. Closed primaries, no parachuting in for money and media should rule. But this is the party that thought they could win GOP vote by distancing themselves from PBO and his accomplishments.

    Good for Hillary! Rackin’ ’em up.

    Muted Trump’s speech, but personally saw Christie and his wife both stifle a couple of yawns each, standing behind the hot mess front runner. Must be way past their bedtime.

    Already the pundits shift to “Indiana is everything.”

    I think engaging in political philosophy is a bit like learning a new language. There is a saying that learning a language changes your outlook as you start to think in that language, because doing so connects you to the culture embodied by that language, its outlook and its particular form of expression. Connecting with a political party is similar because the act of identifying as a Democrat makes one gradually think as a Democrat, to analyze the political debate through a framework that incorporates the thinker’s status as an insider rather than an outsider. This is what happens when you register, vote regularly, and receive regular communications.

    I saw a weird article from salon.com saying something to the effect the bernedoutbots will have to become “the tea party of the left” or some such tripe. Just haven’t the stomach for it this year, so passed on the read.

    • 58 arapaho415
      April 26, 2016 at 11:42 pm

      GE MP.

      With you there, not gonna read.

      Berniebots ALREADY are the tea party of the left. Unmannered and angry, they want their country back, only this time with guarantees of a cushy minimum wage and free college. They don’t want to have to lift a finger to help anyone else, but they damn sure want a safety net for themselves.

      I completely messed up in trying to post Bernie’s demand upthread, so will try again here.

      A $15 minimum wage makes sense in coastal California where the median home price is in the stratosphere and rents aren’t much better, but *nationwide?* — you can pretty much buy a home outright in some “fly-over country” states for the down payment you need in CA.

      Obviously, I’ve been wrong before!

    • April 27, 2016 at 9:56 am

      if he doesn’t, it will be equivalent moment to McCain’s ‘ let’s suspend our campaigns because of the financial crisis’ in 2008.

  23. April 26, 2016 at 11:05 pm

    I can not believe that the Republican Party is falling for something like Donald Trump. Something is wrong with them. And the lack of jobs, fear of terrorists isn’t the problem. But is their problem, they are mad, mad because we had the dam nerve to elect a black man President.

      Truer words have not been spoken! Republicans are mad because we elected a black man President. A man beloved the world over and they cannot take it, it’s eating them from the inside.

      • April 27, 2016 at 12:12 am

        Good evening, TOD! JO’B, I posted about the indictment last year. Also posted the history of that seat; seems whenever the holder rises to a position of power in the House and they buck the system, they either get a well financed challenger, get a “buyout” position in the corporate/non-profit world, or an indictment. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pennsylvania%27s_2nd_congressional_district


        1. Nix, January 3, 1963 – January 3, 1979; was chair of the Committee on the Post Office and Civil Service, at the time, one of the most powerful committees in Congress. He had a history of fighting for civil rights and equal protection for all civil service employees. It was “decided” that was just too much power to be vested in a Black man. Enter well financed challenger Bill Gray.

        2. Gray, January 3, 1979 – September 11, 1991; rose to become fourth-highest-ranking member of the House; was set to run and favored to win special election to replace late Sen Heinz; resignation was a surprise, speculation that the AG was going to announce investigation of campaign finance irregularities. Enter Lucien Blackwell.

        3. Blackwell, November 5, 1991 – January 3, 1995; unbought and unbossed; “they” couldn’t have that… enter VERY WELL FINANCED primary challenger, Chaka Fattah…

        4. Fattah, January 3, 1995 – present; long list of accomplishments. Indicted summer of 2015 for racketeering conspiracy. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chaka_Fattah

          Wow. (Being from Trenton, originally, I also recognize some of the predecessor names.) I must have missed seeing your posts, because I think I would have remembered since I always had a good opinion of him.

          • April 27, 2016 at 12:41 am

            Mr. Nix was a family friend, however, I didn’t start paying attention to his CD until I was stationed at Camp Lejeune. The civil service personnel LOVED him and were very upset that he was being driven from office. Whether they were a janitor or white collar employee, they were well informed about the issues that were important to them, which is why BS’s disparaging of southern voters really rankles me…

              April 27, 2016 at 12:52 am

      He couldn’t quite concede the race (although he finally congratulated Hillary tonight), but the wording of his campaign’s statement still was profound (for them) … implying that he’s no longer running for the nomination, but will go all the way to the convention for the sake of the platform. We shall see how that goes.

        April 27, 2016 at 10:22 am

        Will he still fundraise? That’s the first question that came to mind. How’s is he going to undemonize the front runner with his acolytes? Second question.

      Hi Bill R, tonight Bernie must be feeling the burn of loosing! After tonight, it’s plainly obvious that old Bernie no longer has a path to being the presidential nominee of the Democratic Party.

  38. April 27, 2016 at 12:17 am

    Marco Rubio still has more delegates than Gov. Kasich!!!

    By falling below 10% that allocates an extra delegate to Trump. In the last 6 primaries, he has accumulated 194 delegates, Kasich 11, Cruz 1!!!

  39. April 27, 2016 at 12:23 am

    I’m really pissed about PA Senate results. With McGinty, it is going to be a hard climb to regain the seat. In the GE, Sestak would have received votes from Dems and Repubs; McGinty not so much. Nothing like snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. Pissed that PADems and DNC signed on to Rendell’s petty grievance…
