"My concern, though, is that Bernie’s policies are ultimately DOA given the House he’ll inherit if he wins. When pressed about how he expects to work with a very red House to get anything done, he says a magical swell of “millions” from the political revolution will swoop in and presumably transform the House into a blue body of progressive action. Full stop. That’s it. No elaboration." - Rich Smith
Can Rich Smith or anyone explain this line of thinking to me? I've seen a ton of Hillary supporters use this as an example of why they're not voting for Bernie (almost always preceded by a "I like Bernie but...) and I don't understand it and no one that trots this shit out ever explains it. Do you really think anyone in the House is going to work well with Hilary fucking Clinton? They really, really, really hate her. Why do you think a bunch of old, rich, sexist as fuck white men are going to play nice with the first female president any more than they would Bernie Sanders? It seems like a really disingenuous argument to make. I don't think there's a democrat president in the world that is going to get shit done until those motherfuckers are voted out and I think the point Sanders is trying to make is that he will inspire way more excitement in people to do just that because he'll actually change things for the better and Hillary will keep things the way they are.

It's so fucking gross how many dudes go straight to calling an adult female "little girl" and telling her what they think she should be doing instead of what she actually enjoys.
Seriously, go fuck yourselves.
