2. 3 contests passed and he couldn't resist gloating and attacking the party

 

I know the contest is over (despite BS's bizarre intention to win more delegates) and we should look forward but it was a remarkably poor and arrogant strategy.

How not to win the Democratic Primaries:
Step 1: Making clear to everyone that you are not a Democrat
Step 2: Lose

7. :) No kidding. Between us, "the establishments" who send

 

their choices to national, state and local governments are almost the entire voting electorate.

Even with his massive campaign lies and promises he couldn't possibly come through with, and even with Repub-Russian assistance as they trolled right and left for the primary voters he needed to hurt Biden, he hardly broke 10% of eligible voters, if he did.

That's not even within telescopic view of the overwhelming wave this demagogue would have needed to smash the will of both Democratic and Republican party voters. And then he imagined another that would help the president smash the legislative branch into submission!

All shocking things to even daydream about. Democracy still matters among Democrats at least. But NO one should ever have supported someone so blatantly contemptuous of government OF the people, BY the people, and FOR the people.

11. Those who smash bridges and put themselves on the other side

 

need to take a good look at themselves. Denem, Sanders has been insulting me and everyone who ever voted a Democratic ticket for years. Virtually every day without fail, in every speech those who admire him ever listened to. That's just one big thing, but we'll never know how many millions of people he convinced to not bother voting.

So when it comes to wooing and mending differences, perhaps all those who supported him should reach out by apologizing extremely sincerely and assuring those he lied about that they never actually believed any of those massive insults and that they are proud to be part of our great joint battle to rescue our nation.

12. And eight days later, it was all over.

 

And make no mistake, it wasn't fear of "soshialism," it was the prospect of getting flattened into atoms in November that did it.

13. Posted on the eve of the Nevada caucus.

 

Though he didn't know it at the time, his victory the next day would be the high water mark - the Cemetery Ridge so to speak - of his rebellion.

Shouldn't have brought bluster to a ballot fight.
