For example, the title and subtitle of a piece published 12 days ago in The Daily Beast by Joy-Ann Reid are:
Come on, Bernie, Time to Level With Your Dreamers
He must stop indulging his people’s fantasies, tell them the truth about the math—and get them to stop with all the nasty about Clinton
To be fair to Joy-Ann -- that was 12 days ago. That long ago, there was more reason to believe that Bernie either could do the math or trusted people who could. Bernie himself has said a lot of nasty things about Clinton in the last 12 days. Bernie endorsing Debbie Wasserman Schultz' Democratic challenger -- that was 9 days ago.
12 days ago was a lot of crazy, nasty Bernie ago.
Hey -- maybe 12 days ago, Bernie WASN'T crazy.
