A thought for Tom Gallagher: Sanders tried that last year and it didn’t work out so well as the DNC colluded with the Clinton campaign, the Democrat super-delegates, and their media flunkies to cheat him of the nomination. You know this as well as anyone. But why should Sanders continue wasting energy trying to prop up a dead political party that would rather lose to Republicans in perpetuity than allow the left to take over? It’s insane, or just plain stupid, to expect and demand that anyone join a political party that cares more about Wall Street bribes than actually winning elections. Why expend more time, energy, and money on a lost cause?
Look, I know you’re a partisan hack who despises the left, but guess what? The feeling’s mutual, little boy. Time to grow up or go back to your corner and stay there until you do—because there’s not much time left for humanity and I do not want my kids growing up in a blasted uninhabitable landscape because you overgrown children can’t let go of power. You were given chance after chance after chance to prove yourselves and you chose instead to join up with the Republicans. No more. Enough is enough. You right-wingers are no longer welcome in the Democratic Party. Go register as Republicans since all you ever do is aid and abet their crimes anyway—IF they’ll have you. But they probably won’t, because no one likes a loser and Democrats only ever lose; whether it’s your spines or your ethics or your souls or elections, you like losing because then you get to wrap yourselves in your little cocoons and pretend you’re still relevant and it’s all the left’s fault.
But we adults have to deal with the fallout from your cozying up to right-wing extremists, and we’re past the limits of our patience with you. I hope if Sanders does run again in 2010 it’s under a third party ticket like the Green or Progressive Party. That way you Democrats can fade away into the dustbin of political history as you deserve.
