Bernie to supporters: enough with Hillary's emails

Bernie made it very clear that Hillary's emails are a ridiculous distraction that no one cares about, or should care about, and that the differences between them are minor in comparison to how they both differ from republicans.

That was until Bernie started to lose. Then he showed that emotion can easily get the better of him, a bad sign for anyone seeking one of the most stressful jobs in the world.

When faced with defeat in New York, Bernie abandoned his sense of reason and clarity of mind, in order to win at all costs.

Hillary immediately became a hideous monster that must be defeated even if it means taking away the will of the people by swaying superdelegates, regardless of who earned more votes from the people.

This goes beyond any sour grapes Hillary displayed in 08.

This is what led Paul Song to take his cue from Bernie and go nuclear. This is why some supporters of his are here proclaiming a desire to vote for a non-democrat: because their leader abandoned his role as the clear headed revolutionary and gave the ok for everyone to let emotion call the shots.

If Republicans win, it's back to the horrors of the Bush economy, of religion dictating science policy (remember stem cells?), another 50 years of GOP control of the Supreme Court. For starters.

This is what the sour grapes are saying they would prefer.

Tomorrow this thing will be even more over than it already is. But the truth won't matter. After all, we are humans. And humans like winning, and don't mind flipping over a few board games when the loss is imminent in order to avoid the onset of the emotions of defeat.

4. So I should ignore an issue that could screw the...

Democratic Party in the upcoming election if Hill is nominated?

I think not and, Yes, it's that serious of an issue.

Btw...I think it was admirable for Bernie to extend that olive branch. He could have used it to damage Clinton, but chose not to stick to the issues. Trump will not be so nice.

5. If, in your words, Sanders "chose not [in order to] to stick to the issues ...

... then even you clearly recognize that this is not an issue, else you would have said something like, "He could have used it to damage Clinton, but chose not to stick to what he considered to be the issues.

6. Meh...semantic splitting hairs...

I often wonder if Bernie would have dropped the issue if we knew then what we know about Hill's email server problems with the FBI.

7. Well he certainly hasn't picked it up again.

Clearly he is, in your words, sticking to the issues. That was more of a freudian slip than it was an issue of semantics. Even you realize it's not an issue.
