11. Sanders went out of his way to (mis)represent PACs supporting O'Malley

...as an indication he was 'beholden' to Wall Street, in the last debate.

He can dish it out, but supporters here are awful thin-skinned when it comes to criticisms of their own candidate.

He's not in some universe by himself. He brought the issue of socialism into this race, himself, with his own invented adoption of the label of 'Democratic Socialist.' It's a grab bag of rationales for adopting that moniker, made worse by Sanders' own contorted version of the label.

There's absolutely no reason opponents should be required to carry that political water for Sanders. At the least, they should be reasonably allowed to distance themselves from his nebulous version of what 'Democratic Socialism' means.
