Paging Dr. Kubler-Ross...Dr. Kubler-Ross, you have a call on the white phone...

Elisabeth Kubler-Ross was the psychologist who came up with the "stages of grief" model named after her. It was introduced in her book On Death and Dying. It was subsequently applied to any situation where grief is a factor.

The five stages, which are not necessarily consecutive and don't always all happen, are Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Depression and Acceptance.

So...in the light of last night's caucus, how are Bernie's fans doing?

They're denying Hillary actually won. "She won on coin flips!" "More caucusers went with Bernie!"
They're mad that she did. (No examples will be given. You've seen 'em.)
They're bargaining their asses off..."Bernie had no organization and no name recognition and he only came eight delegates from tying her, that's just as good as a win, isn't it?"
And they're depressed as hell that the "Corporate Democrat" could even come close to their "pure Democrat" in the delegate totals.
Forget "acceptance." That won't happen.
