No wonder so many of the Bernie bros on Twitter seem more bitter than ever. She's the toughest for them to beat, especially since, other than the horrific choice she made about the DNA test, she won't self-immolate the way Biden always does.

The Berners are going to be extra toxic this election because the revolution is dying and as a southern friend of mine likes to say "a dying mule kicks the hardest."

Well, that's what happens when you take revolutionary ideals into the mainstream.  The leaders always get left behind.

I noticed that Sanders was trending today but when I checked to see why, it was basically Bernie firing off a rash of tweets (i.e. a tweet-storm) with almost no engagement from anyone else.  I figured that perhaps he was doing it to try to get his name  back in the spotlight somehow.  It was probably a campaign decision-- likely as a result of them being rattled by Warren's policy discussions being in the news and her poll ratings rising.

It was bizarre how I just saw a string of tweets from Sanders' twitter and no one else.

Grampa Bernie needs to settle down or else he'll have an angina attack. ;)

I think he gave a big speech on socialism, which seemed to be getting hype. I can tell the media is pushing for him to have a comeback because The Atlantic had a bizarre article out yesterday talking about how the other candidates were laughing at him. That's catnip to his perpetual victim-based supporters.

What was bizarre was that I didn't see any tweets other than from his account discussing the matter.  Maybe his tweets were getting many retweets but usually when a topic is trending, the tweets are being generated from numerous accounts, not just one.  It just looked bizarre to me.

Trash begets trash. Kellyanne Con-Job is trash working for Trump, Supreme Trash. All of this said, nothing will happen. Corruption from top to bottom. I would say I feel sorry for George Conway, but he stays married to the blonde bimbo, so...meh.

Jon Stewart became something of a tiresome #bothsides blowhard before leaving TV, but he means well and he did the right thing shaming the Congress re: 9/11 first responders yesterday. And now:
