What Bloody Party?

This morning I read about Bernie's defeat in New York.  I also read comments like, "Hillary wins, crowds aren't votes."  How goddamn dare they close the system, leaving millions of voters out, then brag about their bloody victory?  "Bernie get out! Unite the Party now.'  Unite the Party?  The Independents won't be shut out of the general.  Unite what Party?  How in hell do the Clintonistas plan to force people to vote for her in November; clone Bill and stand him up in front of polling places across the country to smile and trade on his faded celebrity; clone that miserable Barney Frank, and have him stand next to voting booths and outside of people's homes calling them McCarthyites?  How exactly do they plan to unite the "Party", that is the question; and it's a big one.

I have said before and will say again, Bernie Sanders is the greatest Socialist voice of my day. He is the leader of the new, reinvigorated Left. He has given the Liberal's their voice back, founded a revolution and brought the Democratic Socialist Movement out of the wilderness. I am a member of that movement. Anyone who doesn't like that can kiss my beautiful Italian ass at high noon, on Main Street, any city of your choice. I will pay your airfare.

Bernie is too good for the Oval Office. The White House has always had the bouquet of the sewer, but since Reagan and over the last seven years thanks to the work of his obstructionist acolytes, it has become a raging toilet. Toilets are for turds, and we may well have two of the best running in November. For now Bernie is in, until he says he is out. Millions of us are with him until it is over; and to quote another great man and great Italian, Yogi Berra, "It ain't over ‘til it's over."
