"The major political task that we face in the next five months is to make certain that Donald Trump is defeated and defeated badly. And I personally intend to begin my role in that process in a very short period of time." -- Senator Bernie Sanders, June 16, 2016.
6 freakin' days ago, Bernie. "A very short period of time" was days ago. Has it slipped your mind?
Oh well. It would've been nice if Bernie had conceded and endorsed Hillary, as anyone who actually does want to see Trump defeated badly and is not a complete moron can see. But the more time passes and he does Jack Squat instead, the less it matters what he does.
Would this have been what we could have expected from a President Sanders in a moment of crisis? "I will respond to this emergency in a very short period of time --" and 6 days later, he's still leaving the disaster victims hangin', with not one further word on the emergency, because he's off sulking because he feels that another head of state cheated him in some way?
This both is and isn't funny: funny, because Bernie's behavior, or should I say, his prolonged lack of any behavior, is so pathetic, and not funny, because this is important, big-time stuff with huge consequences, calling for decisive action, not prolonged meditation and fasting. But like I say: the longer Bernie does nothing, the less clout he has, the less Presidential he appears. And that seems to be a good thing, if what he's going to do is -- nothing.
