26. Also, believe me the bigger problem even in New York is NOT...

 

omg someone said corporate whore! That's total bullshit.

Every day, they will have their message attacking anything Sanders did, for any available reason. If the only word they heard was "flowers" they'd say the same things: violence, brutishness, sexism, racism, etc. You saw the guy who now calls Sanders supporters Nazis? It's just a list of charged negative codewords they recite every day without fail. Pure Rovian Ratfucking 101.

But the real problem, still, unfortunately, is this very common response: "Who is Bernie Sanders?"

Nice fundraising and mobilization by the campaign and its supporters, but it's hard to compete against all the noise of 24/7 media distractions of all kinds, and 25 years of name recognition.

This board is a yak-yak bubble of a vanishingly small group.
