"When feelings are so badly hurt, they must be recognized." -- one of the leading idiots from the Sanders campaign, in an MSNBC interview around 7:30 PM on the first night of the convention, questioned about the way that so many of the Sanders delegates are booing every time Hillary's name is mentioned.
I couldn't have put it better myself. This is all about the feelings of outraged Sanders supporters.
They are a bunch of grown-ass crybabies.
A few hours ago, Bernie asked a meeting of his delegates to support Hillary, and he was booed. I hope he's not so dumb that that surprised him. He should've been preaching party unity to his supporters for months now. Weeks at the very least. Suspending his campaign -- that would've headed off this sort of Convention Night 1 cluster&@#$.
We can't really even call them his supporters when they're booing him and ignoring what he asks them to do. It doesn't make much sense for them to wear Bernie T-shirts and boo Bernie at the same time.
But, of course, the Sanders campaign has never been about making sense. It's about feelings.
Bernie's Convention speech is coming up later tonight. It will be interesting. I wonder whether he'll mention Hillary's name.
I don't think he'll be able to get away with rebuking his delegates and asking them to behave like grown-ups invoolved in something very important, because: pot, kettle...
