For months I have tried to understand the wildly irrational hatred and demonization of Hillary by the berniedudes. This comment hits the proverbial nail on the head:


What really bothers me are the Bernie or Bust crowd. If you support liberal and progressive priorities, then Hillary is clearly almost as good a choice as Bernie. The exaggerated caricature of Clinton as dishonest and corrupt that they seem to believe makes them extremely gullible and deluded betrayers of liberalism. It's as if they have decidided they need to force themselves to believe these lies as a litmus test for how pure their Bernitude is.
