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.

This Is Where Revolution Gets You, Bernie

The ink clouds of butthurt from the mostly young Bernie or Bust crowd have not abated except at the margins. Tonight Clinton will seal the nomination and hopefully the boo-birds will walk out in "protest."

Sanders' rhetoric of "revolution" led us here. Revolutionaries don't compromise, politicians do. And elections are about politics not barricades. 

It's not a surprise that Bernie is surprised by his dead enders. He never really seemed to know the fire he was playing with.
