(Update: Big hello again to the Crooks & Liars audience visiting via the Mike's Blog Round-Up link! Thank you again, Infidel753 for the promotion!)
What I'm seeing in the Twitter feeds and on Salon.com - that site has gone so far in for Bernie and so against Hillary that when Hillary wins I'm afeared they'll go full Trump on us - that "we" need to blow up the Democratic Party to save it has driven me to break out the trout and perform the most epic of put-downs:
Breaking out poorly edited Monty Python snark.
Overheard at a Bernie Sanders Support Meeting
Bernie: All right, Shaun King. Don't labor the point. And what have the Democratic Party ever given us in return?
X-Man fan: Civil rights legislation in the 1960s.
Bernie: Oh yeah, yeah they gave us that. Yeah. That's true.
Guy Fawkes Mask Guy: And the unionized sanitation workers!
Shaun: Oh yes... sanitation unions, Bernie, you remember what the city used to be like whenever they'd go on strike.
Bernie: All right, I'll grant you that the civil rights and the sanitation unions are two things that the Democrats have done...
Jeff: And the roads bills they keep pushing so we can fix our aging highways and bridges...
Bernie: (angry) Well yes obviously the roads and bridges... the roads and bridges go without saying. But apart from the civil rights, the sanitation unions, and the roads...
Another Activist dressed like a Ghostbuster: Climate change activism...
Other Cosplay Voices: Cheaper Medicine... Public Education... Frank-Dodd regulations... Obamacare getting 90 percent of the population covered...
Bernie: Yes... all right, fair enough...
Anime Fan near the front: And Obama does his own crafted brewing! I've shared some recipes with him!
All of the Mob: Oh yes! True!
Pope Francis: Yeah. That's something we'd really miss if the Democrats broke up, Bernie.
Stan Lee (cameo): And the crime rate's dropped during the last eight years.
Pope Francis: Yes, they certainly know how to keep order... (The crowd nods)... let's face it, they're the only ones who could in a nation like this.
Bernie (frustrated): All right... all right... but apart from the civil rights and the sanitation unions and Obamacare and education and climate change issues and microbreweries and roads and a regulated financial system and public order... what have the Democratic Party done for us?
Jeff: Nobel peace prizes?
Bernie: (angry) What!? (scornfully) Peace... shut it!
(The previous has been ripped shamelessly from Life of Brian)
I have a little too much MegaCon conventioning on my mind right now. Apologies for that.
Just to note, this is post No.999 on this blog. So the next one I do has got to be a biggie. Keep alert.
