Berniecrats: It is a day to rejoice and look forward to making history
I listened to Bernie spell out the road to victory in his press conference. I have assessed all the pros and cons of each candidate. And today I have witnessed a veritable tsunami of nonsense of such preposterous proportions, that I sense victory is at hand. There are indeed corporate lobbyists who are superdelegates. Of course, their support for their candidate will not waver. But the career politicians who have a future to think about, well of course they will do the right thing.
This is why at DU today it is raining poop.
Take heart in that fact, the fact that a desperate establishment is gripping onto the levers of power as tightly as it can, and let us get prepared to contest this convention on the power of ideas, and fueled by the passion of a political revolution.
They are not going to be able to hold on for much longer.
Go badger and harass the hell out of SDs. That is the sure way to make them flip to Bernie. I mean what makes somebody change their mind quicker than harassment and belittlement?
I don't think that means what they think it means....
really? So why do we even bother having elections when the person with the fewer votes can be declared the winner?
race. That is what is crazy.
the SDs should go to the candidate with the most pledged delegates. Right?
Awaiting the rest of the crew with no substance and similar one-liners and smilies.
But make sure I use a whole TWO sentences...with a subject and a verb at the very least.

We cannot waver. We have the high road and will remain there.
EDIT scratch that, looks like there is more trash to take out.
On DU yesterday was an article explaining 25 percent of Republicans will vote for Hillary in November if Trump is their candidate. So why should we disregard the clear will of the voters to put the guy who's three million votes down on the ballot in November?
not to mention 70% of the largest voting group, Independents.
your candidate believes it needs more study and more legislation for mass incarceration. Besides, who wants to smoke with conservatives?
That's it, we've lost!
and nominate a candidate who isn't under FBI investigation, and can win.
It might be at the last minute, but I think self-interest stands a good chance of clearing their vision enough to see the handwriting on the wall.
We'll get to see how well "the system" of superdelegates works this time. If it works at all, the time for it to demonstrate its usefulness would be in this situation.
one thing I have learned about Bernie is that he does not tend to over-promise.
He got Michigan though so congrats for that.
What else would Bernie Sanders be called, having had no career besides politician since 1981 (and none besides failed part-time carpenter before that)? Thirty-five continuous years in office makes him one of the most careerist of career politicians.
Be careful of labeling people.
I dare the Democratic party to steal the election from women and people of color. Those are the people that have given Hillary Clinton her 3,000,000 vote margin of victory.
Shame on anybody who even suggests trying it.
not voting whats best for them.
basically telling them their votes don't count.
Do you really think this could happen? Do you want this to happen?
He claims he can still win. He couldn't last week; he can't this week.
Is it made of yellow bricks? And do munchkins live at the beginning of it?
One of you makes up for a dozen of them. I appreciate everything you do.
