Bernie Sanders Fans Take Massive Dump On Nevada Democratic Convention Floor
hot cops. You guys know Wonkette is officially neutral in the Democratic primary. Evan and I are bought-and-paid-for neolib corporate piece of shit Hillary shills; Dok and Robyn and Shy are fine upstanding citizens who support Bernie. We don't know who Intern Dominic is backing, but judging by some comments in the chatcave it is whoever can give him the spanking he so richly deserves. (That would be Hillary then.)
THEY'RE BOTH GOOD. THEY'RE BOTH FINE. AND NEITHER ONE OF THEM IS GOING TO PICK A REPUBLICAN WOMAN TO BE THEIR VP.
But while Hillary's worst voters (NOT ALL OF THEM, JUST THE WORST) have a tendency to not understand sarcasm and schoolmarm you to death WHEN YOU WERE JOKING, Bernie's worst voters (NOT ALL OF THEM, JUST THE WORST) have an opposite tendency, and that is to be a fascist shitbag who can suck on my balls.
After hours spent trying to figure out why Bernie Sanders delegates were screaming that the Democrats had stolen the (Democratic!) convention, we're still a little hazy, and Jon Ralston has yet to weigh in at his blog. But here's what seems to have happened, as near as we can tell.
Hillary Clinton won Nevada's caucuses by almost five points, and both candidates were awarded delegates to the county conventions. Bernie Sanders's delegates out-appeared Hillary Clinton's delegates at the county conventions, where delegates would be awarded for the state convention. (This process is so dumb you guys. So fucking dumb. JUST GIVE THEM THE DELEGATES BASED ON HOW MANY CAUCUS VOTES THEY GOT JESUS H FUCKING CHRIST.) But at the state convention, about an equal number of Hillary Clinton's folks showed up as did Bernie Sanders's. And of the Bernie folks who showed up, sixty had unregistered as Democrats. Whoops that meant they were not allowed to vote at the DEMOCRATIC convention! So fixed! Many corruptions! Oh god I hate everyone.
So then they went insane. They screamed at Barbara Boxer that she was a sellout bitch and did their best to boo the four-foot-nothing liberal grandma lion off the stage. They did their goddamndest to shut the whole thing down, because how is it even kosher for Hillary Clinton to get more delegates just because she won, when they had stolen it fair and square?
