ou hit it on something I haven;t realized until now. Pretty much all his surrogates are has-been s (have beens?), Uygur, Hartman, Greenwald, West, Reich & assorted Guardian/Intercept purveyors used to have an audience – during the Bush years and lost it under Obama. which is, whether they are aware of not, their real beef. Just as 🐘🐘 discovered that deep down , opposition is the best they can ever do for themselves, so did these people. How can they rant against the machine when the machine gets the economy going and people appreciate it? They are all, like Sanders an anachronism and I read somewhere, they actually hope D would lose so they can start a new party (why can’t they do that now?🤔) Oh, and as an aside – it would be honest for many of these people to disclose that they are paid by Qatar (Uygur) Iran (Greenwald) Moscow(Hartman). Nothing wrong with voices from faraway as long as they don’t pretend to be something else.
Here’s another similarity between BS and Trump – their spectacularly failed attempts to get international creds. Strangely not mentioned anymore – Trump-s attempt to invite himself to speak in Israeli Parliament. Netanyahu turned him down (“we can’t have that rhetoric in our Parliament, we have Arab MPs). Maybe the reluctance to give Netanyahu any props made our left ignore this goldmine. Add to that BS’s Vatican – an Atheist Socialist Jew inviting himself to a conference about some old papal pronouncement – that in fact condemns socialism – and you have perfect matching SNAFUs

NY Times publishes a pre-mortem for the Sanders campaign (if we only attacked her more!) Krugman calls it for what it is – more smearshttp://krugman.blogs.nytimes.c… and I give you the visual – thanks to Melville and Star Trek
Bernie Sanders, according to the New York Times, agrees with what we’ve been saying for months: His Wall Street dog whistle is a direct assault on Hillary’s integrity.
