As the enamel on Bernie Sanders' pearly white campaign begins to erode, my pal Jon Reinish offers this perfect comeback for your friends who are ready to sue the DNC over superdelegates, but have no problem with the completely undemocratic state caucuses, where Bernie is king!
A word on super delegates for anyone drinking the #BernieBrew: they were masterminded in large part by Tad Devine, Bernie Sanders' chief campaign strategist, in 1984; they do not weigh in until the convention, by which time we have always had a nominee; they have never tipped the scales for a victor or been determinative in picking a victor. End of story. They ARE: largely Democratic elected officials and state level party activists who exist in the trenches, fighting good fights for Democrats and progressive victories, seen and unseen. They ARE NOT: shadowy figures smoking cigars and throwing dice while petting hairless cats and wearing monocles (mostly).And never mind the fact that Bernie's new path to victory banks on winning over ... superdelegates!
UPDATE: A Bernie supporter has published a "hit list" of Democratic superdelegates? This is truly disturbing but no longer surprising ...
