Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

Sanders Is Dancing Up To A Line

The brouhaha in Nevada over the state convention is threatening to create rift with the Sanders people.  And it's the Sanders people who are inflaming this.  Sanders lost the fucking process.  He won a bunch of geography, but not enough people.  John Cole uses his typically intemperate but on-point language to describe the Sanders people as entitled students who want their grades raised for no real reason.

Martin Longman suggests that Clinton be magnanimous, and perhaps she should.  But only to a point.

Sanders needs to decide if this is really a movement or a cult of personality.
