The Wreck List usually gives me an idea of what is going on. Today I read some diaries about how Kos was going to Bojo anyone who failed to support Clinton after March 15…..or some such nonsense.
Then I read the Kos diary itself.
The only thing unreasonable, is Kos’s assertion that Sanders has to close the <200 delegate gap by 15 March. If the gap essentially stays the same, then that means Sanders and Clinton have split the contests 50/50, the percentage gap has actually shrunk and it’s a wide open race. If that happens, then Kos can shove his General Election “ultimatum” up is Kass.
But as far as the rest is concerned, I didn’t see anything outrageous. Criticism of Clinton and The System (from the left) is still Kacceptable behavior.
Yes, Kos sometimes sounds like he’s forgotten what it’s like to be powerless and too many of his frontpagers are in the tank for the Party Establishment candidate. It is a sad fact of human nature, that political Apparatchiks will always identify with the political system than enables their livelihood.
But after March 15th, you will still be able to talk about what a fucking disaster a Clinton candidacy is going to be, as long as you back it up with good reasons: like Republicans who aren’t highly motivated to vote for Trump will be highly motivated to vote AGAINST Clinton and that is going to be a disaster for down-ballot Democrats.
So stop creating imaginary outrages, when we already have enough real ones.
