19. You should go undercover again. Oddly, you made more sense then.

Or maybe not, but you weren't so ridiculous. Or maybe not, but... oh I don't know, but you are getting a bit hysterical over very real concerns about democracy and the people's right to vote.

This almost manic need to slime Bernie and his supporters, maybe it just built up during all those months when he had to pretend to support him.

32. When mistakes hurt both candidates, I'll consider them honest mistakes.

Statistically, it's not possible for every single mistake by the party apparatus to only harm Sanders.

33. Bernie Sanders will be on the DC ballot and will suffer zero harm.

 

There was that mistake by the party apparatus that allowed Bernie's campaign to illegally spy on Clinton's database.

But, work through the denial stage at your own pace. I imagine the cries of FRAUD will ring quite loudly when Clinton stomps him in New York.

34. So point me to the same sort of mistakes by the party that affected Clinton.

If they're just mistakes, surely they would happen as often to her as they do to Sanders.

There was that mistake by the party apparatus that allowed Bernie's campaign to illegally spy on Clinton's database.

Actually, the spying worked in both directions.

Again, it is not statistically possible for such honest mistakes to keep only affecting Sanders. So where's the mistakes affecting Clinton?

7. 'according to a report by WRC-TV, the local NBC affiliate,'

for those questioning accuracy of this, as op is from the Washington Times.

'DC Democratic Party Chairwoman Anita Bonds told WRC that it was a minor administrative dispute that the board could fix next week or, failing that, the D.C. Council could pass an emergency measure.

The Districtís presidential primary is set for June 14.'

Call whoever is in charge of elections in D.C. After Arizona, nothing would surprise me.

20. It was the Democratic Party that screwed up not Sanders

The D.C. Democratic Party was required file to the D.C. Board of Elections by March 16, but submitted the registration paperwork for Sanders a day late.

Both Sanders and front-runner Hillary Clinton submitted their registration fees of $2,500 on time.

47. Bump that list against the list of commitments by superdelegates ...

... and it's clear the DC committee is almost unanimous in support of Clinton.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Democratic_Party_superdelegates,_2016

So, no surprise she's on the ballot, and Bernie (somehow) is not.

Big mystery.

I hope it gets fixed.
