Bern is all about symbolic violence against Democrats. Then he cries about Democrats being against him.
Sanders sees his chance to win the nomination slipping, so he’s going scorched earth again on the Democratic Party.

Bern will argue that Warren is just another neoliberal centrist that his revolution is meant to smash.

The prosecution lost the OJ Simpson case through incompetence and the arrogance that is typical of this category of lawyer. First, the prosecution didn’t rebut defense expert testimony that DNA evidence was contaminated. Second, one could see the prosecutors slump in their seats as the lead police investigator took the 5th three times on the witness stand in order to avoid perjury. Third, the gloves debacle was entirely avoidable. There was no need for Mr Simpson to put on the gloves in front of the jury.
Mr Cochran’s lyrical closing argument didn’t have a leg to stand on without prosecutorial mistakes.
