Let the gaslighting begin.
It’s exhausting really. In the zeal to run interference for Sanders; they are gaslighting us about sexism.
I read that article in Jacobin and my god their bunker mentality is showing it’s pathetic worrying and amusing all at the same time
Nah...not having it with Bernie love on here today. I’m actually somewhat surprised at myself for being so vitriolic against him today, but these two instances are right in line with not only 2016 and Hillary, but what his staffers and aides have been doing to Warren this cycle. I’m not talking about writing it off as… Read more
YES! Reminds me of a point made in offshoot convo in a Bloomberg thread here on jez this week. Where I was surprised Bloomberg was showing second best to beat Trump in Michigan...Biden, Bloomberg, Sanders then Warren..

Not to sound like a conspiracy theorist, but I feel that either the centrist leaning media or more right leaning campaigns are trying to play on the left’s propensity for cannibalizing itself in order to help centrist candidates.

I, for one, would love for the future of the Democratic Party to be resolved by a minor tiff between two septuagenarians, one of whom was a Republican during the Clinton years and the other who is only a Democrat when he wants to run for President.
When people suggest this kind of, uh, extremely basic campaigning — wherein you’re supposed to argue you’re a better candidate than your opponents? — is going negative, I have to assume they’re either completely new to politics or suffering from profound retrograde amnesia. Like Ashley suggested, 2008 makes every… Read more
