Don't worry about Bernie Bros [View all]

Here's why I say this: Just think of Super Tuesday: Sure,Joe had just squashed Bernie in SC, but that was just a hiccup, right? Sanders still had the unstoppable momentum, we were told by every news outlet I can think of (glaring especially hard at YOU, The Hill). But March 3 was gonna be the night that Biden was sent packing, when Bernie was going to become the inevitable nominee of a party he's never been a member of. The Progressives, The Truly Woke, the Revolutionaries, and Oh-My-God The Young People were gonna change the fundamental structure of of this country and its politics forever!

And they didn't show up.

With Joe Biden still on the ropes, with the death blow to his political career about to be delivered, with their Patron Saint Bernard poised to bring ideological purity to the messy old Democratic Party, they. Didn't. Show. Up!

And the same dame thing will pertain in November: They won't vote for Joe, but guess what? They wouldn't have voted for ANY Democratic nominee! Even if Senator Sanders Himself ended up with the nomination, they still wouldn't have shown up, because BERNIE BROS DON"T FUCKING VOTE!!!

I'm probably pissing off some people here. Maybe this will be my last post on DU. But tomorrow I'm getting tested, so I'm making sure I get this in before my 67-year-old ass possibly gets erased from existence.

Don't worry about the overhyped, ineffective Bros, Vote Blue in November, and hopefully I'll be back in a couple of days. In the meantime stay safe.

PS: Yes, I am very fond of employing boldface, italics, and occasionally underline.

If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden
