21: I'm not talking about the results. I'm talking about your BS characterization and apparent assertion that he's a cheater. I have thoughts on the results (was that this thread?) but they don't go so far as out-and-out voter suppression, more bias and machination by the DNC (read: DWS). The primary-caucus system is f'd up, but when you enter the game, yes, you should know and understand the rules (which I think he does)--but that doesn't mean you can't work to change them (though you should change them for the future, not for immediate purposes). And he didn't fail at all. He was at, what, 4% when he started. Going from that to damned close is hardly failing.
"Very disappointed in the current state of politics. "
"Disappointed in Bernie for not raising money to support the party."
I don't understand why one must do this. He is doing so now for downticket candidates, btw.
"He thinks this is some kind of after-school special. There are realities on the ground that he is ignoring."
And there you go again. No, he doesn't. He thinks--nay, believes--that it needs to change, and he doesn't want to play the parts of the game he doesn't like. That doesn't necessarily mean he doesn't get it. I'm against grades, and standardized grading, and I often cheat the system to enable and encourage actual learning; that doesn't mean I don't understand the realities of education; quite the opposite, I'd say.
Anyway, I think we've probably staked our claims now. I'm not sure there's any purpose to continuing the argument.
