Bernie, say something
We know a couple of things about the 2016 primaries. The GOP put too many people on stage, even candidates with 2% in the polls. On the other side, the Democrats had picked a winner all along and let Sanders's supporters enjoy their 15 minutes of "revolution."
Over at Democracy Now, the headline is "Leaked Hillary Clinton Emails: Could Bernie Sanders Have Won Primary If Leak Occurred Earlier?"
Of course not! We now see that the whole darn thing was a sham, a nomination signed, sealed, and delivered to the Clintons before the first debate took place months ago! Where is the liberal outrage?
Another headline reads that "Sanders supporters seethe over Clinton's leaked remarks to Wall St."
Well, they should be seething. Frankly, I hope they are doing more than that. I hope that they are are calling on the man they voted for to say something.
As you know, Senator Sanders is relaxing in a new home and working on a new book: Our Revolution: A Future to Believe In, due out in mid-November.
What future are Sanders's supporters supposed to believe in? I'd like to know.
At the moment, we can draw two conclusions from Mr. Sanders' silence:
1) He is afraid of standing up to the Clintons.
2) Or, more cynically, he was in the fix, too. In other words, he went along with the charade to get his 15 minutes of fame and use his book revenues to get a larger home.
Bernie, say something, or your book may do as well as the one that Mrs. Clinton and Senator Kaine wrote recently.
