Ooh. Jumped the Shark

On October 1, 2015 I made a prediction; Clinton/Sanders would win the 2016 election.
I'm now backing way off on that bad boy.
Why? Because Sanders has totally jumped the shark. My man Bernie has really let me down, with his nutty conspiracies we end up with a situation where the white people of the Democratic Party simply cannot believe that anyone voted for anyone else.
So May 29 2016? I wish Hillary would pick Elizabeth Warren to be her running-mate.

White Power on the Left

So, Sander's campaign has been disappointing me lately.

Remember that broad coalition of 2008? Sigh. Those were the days. Bernie supporters in the form of the Bernie Bro don't really care about that. Many (too many) are essentially the left-wing version of Donald Trump supporters. I'm not saying Bernie is like that but he sure doesn't do anything to discourage the "We're White men and we must be heard" portion of his followers.

Hey White people. No, you don't need to be heard. Men especially. Which is ironic 'cause I'm a White guy writing a blog post. But the fact is we have to get over the fact that we won't be electing 100% White guys to office anymore. 

The "Bernie or Bust" movement is a threat that if White men don't get their way, they'll throw the country (or at least the non-White part of the country) to the wolves in the form of Donald Trump. The White progressives will hold us all hostage if they don't get what they want.

Remember the strident Naderite naivety in 2000 where Bush and Gore were exactly the same? How well did that work out for everyone? (Hint: not well.) Yet our left in America hates to actually have to govern. They actually prefer someone like G.W. Bush in office because it's more "fun" to have such a clear enemy.
