How Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden Spent Their Weekend


I've already addressed this stuff recently: Previously on Biden; previously on Sanders, specifically his garbage assertion that the Democrats lost the election. So I'm not going to go through it all again.

What I will say is this: Both of these white cishet men in their 70s have indicated they want to run for president again in 2020.

That both of them seem to imagine the way to build a winning coalition is to shit all over Hillary Clinton and her supporters is reason number one that neither of them is ready to lead the party.

That goes double for spending your time at Mitt Romney donor conferences (whut) or a "people's summit" in Chicago, while experienced community organizers in that city are publicly wondering WTF after no one bothered to contact them (whut).

This doesn't look like "unity." This looks like a party being shaped by people who don't want me to be a part of it, from every possible direction.

I don't know how to "unify" with people squeezing me out. And frankly, I'm really beginning not to care.
