Jaw-dropping expression of either delusion or a demented attempt at being sinister.

Has anyone else seen something like this?

In a harmless conversation about whether Sanders skipping over to California to campaign was a good idea, I had this exchange:

Me: If things go according to my personal projections that include Sanders winning two of the five primaries next week and cutting deep into HRC's leads in PA, MD, and CT; winning every May and June contest (all by at least 10% and some by 80/20 margins); then, he will need a 66/34 victory in California to beat HRC by 3 delegates.

A Bernie Fan: Evidently you don't understand the entire process leading to convention and the process at convention. There are no real numbers yet. At all.

Me: This is just a big illusion? All the campaigning, voting, debates, and lawsuits are a charade?

A Bernie Fan: Pretty much. As we have been saying. We will use every inch to claim victory so we can change it. Something Hillary won't do.


So, is this pure desperation or some bizzarro plan to turn the convention upside down?

1. I'm thinking both.

There is also a contingent burrowing into the DNC with the intent to disrupt.

They've been sold a load of BS (literally and figuratively).

7. I was in a discussion in which Al Gore was accused of

"conceding for unities sake," which was utter bullshit.

People there are pretty close to calling for armed rebellion.

There is some disturbing stuff going on.

10. Although some of the Berners at DU are sincere...

 

... far too many are militant and non-thinking. Those people remind me of Trump's supporters.

26. Next thing you know, they'll be petitioning for "Open Carry" in Philadelphia,

 

just to be able to back up their bombast with some fire power.

Even being ridiculously kind to Sanders, I can't get him a win.

And once apportioned, they're not going to change--with supers also voting on the first round, it's going to be over in about ten minutes.

17. Yep!

You can set things anywhere you want. As Clinton wins--or does better than the numbers I set--I keep riding the extra delegates into California.

Save it and share it--they'll give you a link.

9. If the thought is some are going to be outside of the convention and their actions is going to get

Sanders the nomination, it will not happen, just as Wall Street continues after the occupy program, the DNC will continue and so will the GE in November and Sanders will not be the nominee.

12. The DNC controls the convention, not the candidates.

Wishful thinking on the part of the Sanders campaign that they can pull off a coup.

15. One of the things missing in some of the projections, I think, is that he won't do as well

in the open primaries going forward. A large block of his open primary support is more anti-Clinton than it is pro-Bernie. This was illustrated in the Ohio win, where the crossover rallied to Kasich. And it is illustrated in Wisconsin where 14 % of his voters didn't vote for any down ticket Dems or vote in the Supreme Court Race. I think another portion of Bernie's Wisconsin voters actually voted for the Walker Republican.

As the non-Democratic contingent of his voters sees this as Hillary's race, they will be less inclined to fuck with the Democrats and tend to their own house.

23. Yes. They are trying to stack the state delegates with Bennie Supporters.

Delegates vote for the person that won them in the first vote of a contested convention but if it goes to a second vote they can choose whoever they want.

They want to be all set to steal the nomination. They learned that lesson from Cruz.
