Not feeling the bern? As Ms Silverman said: “put some cream on it.”
Mr Sanders is a politician, not a martyr. He achieved what was achievable.
In his speech, Mr Sanders tried to save the nation. He also tried to save his supporters from themselves.
The point of politics is to get into power and stay in power. One can’t change anything standing outside, luxuriating in self-righteousness.
Only a small group of Berniebros, the rump of which is at the DNC, continue to nurse their hurt feelings. Calls of “sellout” directed towards Sanders and Warren are signs of emotional disturbance. However, their numbers do not justify the coddling pleas they are receiving from Democrats and rational people more generally. Let them vote Trump or Stein in November. Let them bathe in the pure waters of self-righteous self-pity. And let them don hairshirts during Ms Clinton’s Inauguration.
