    Voters overwhelmingly supported Hillary in AZ which I believe to be a swing state in 2016. She’ll lose UT and ID. Big deal. There’s zero chance of a D winning either of those states. But AZ? It’s in play for the blue team.

    The math continues to show it’s Trump vs Hillary.

    Time for Bernie to exit and endorse Hillary.

    He won’t do it, and I respect that, but I’m here to show the reality of the situation.

    Time to get on board the Hillary train or you risk Trump getting elected. Not a big difference between Hillary and Bernie in policy and votes, but one hell of a difference compared to Trump!

    To all the Bernie supporters, make sure to review the impact Ralph Nader had on the 2000 election and consider the damage that was done by having GW Bush elected vs Al Gore.

    Keeping it real has it’s consequences.

    Hillary Clinton for prison 2016!!

    How great will Hillary look in Orange?
    I wonder if she will end up being in the same cell with Jared from Subway?
    They will probably have to muzzle her because I bet she will be barking like a dog just like she has been on her campaign.

    Radiodork, not sure what your political agenda is here, but Hillary has proven she is the DEM nominee, with the western results tonight.

    Trump, maybe, but not for sure. Time will tell.

    Sanders coming on strong in the west. Still the math doesn’t add up

    Dorks political agenda is to sound like the living embodiment of a comments section attached to a lunatic right wing website.

    Being an ignorant and hysterical troll is a feature; not a bug. He’s clearly incapable of rational discourse and shows little interest in intelligently defending anything he blurbs about much less attempting to answer a question posed in turn. I find it interesting that’s such a common trait among the base of the right. It’s like attempting to reason with a block of granite.

    The Donald really should consider scrapping the “Make America Great” motif and running with “Immune to reason, impermeable to fact”. Perhaps they can pass out some t-shirts at il Trumpe’s next Orwellian campaign appearance prior to the Two Minute Hate. At the least, you’d then have truth in labeling.

    Of minor interest and/or points of inquiry:

    • As per usual, there’s a laughable amount of editing required to post the most simplistic of opinions. I have this image of Dork covered with a sheen of perspiration while intently editing his thoughts while hunched over a desktop; Cheetos stained fingertips madly dancing across the keys.
    • Why is the word “orange” capitalized?
    • Conservative attempts at humor are funny in of themselves; of course often for all of the wrong reasons. You see what he did there? He’s asking you to imagine Hillary Clinton and Jared from Subway in-the-same-cell. Get it, she’s like a sexual predator! Hysterical! One would normally have to troll a classroom of middle school students to find that level of comedic acumen.
    • I’m not quite sure what the dog barking, muzzling, etc. language is meant to convey. I suppose it could be construed simply as a childish attack? Though the chosen metaphor is really, really odd. At best it’s just not particularly amusing or relevant and fails to take advantage of a perceived character trait or political liability; as all good satire is intended to. At worst, it’s likely to be taken as some kind of misogynistic slight. To be clear, Dork is of the opinion the former Secretary of State and first female nominee for the Presidency will be “barking like a dog, just like she has been on her campaign”. Wow. You stay classy, San Diego! It’s just that kind of language that the lunatic right cannot help themselves from. It’s regularly barfed out by conservative talk radio pundits, littered across the internet, and apparently makes up a disturbing amount of Donald Trump’s worldview as well. I.e. He has a long and well documented history of making gross, inappropriate, sexist, and misogynistic comments. Donald cannot help himself; he’s absolutely going to say a lot of really vile stuff about his likely general election opponent. Spoiler alert: It’s not going to go over well with the vast majority of the electorate and a plurality of women voters; including quite a number of Republicans.

    Oh, *I* don’t care. By all means, have at it. That kind of language from Trump as well as his vapid supporters will help elect Hillary Clinton.

    It’s just interesting. I could make a sociological project out of this.

    Bernie is going all the way to Philly.

    It is not time to step away. He has already moved Clinton left and got a pledge or two out of her. 🙂 And it’s Clinton adopting the messages, not Sanders. It’s Sanders drawing the crowds, not Clinton.

    No, the plan is to win.

    Can’t do that by stepping away.

    TYT asked Bernie about his plans, and you can watch it here:

    Good media commentary in there too. There are good reasons why KSKD very sharply limits establishment media exposure.

    In Oregon, you have until April 28th? to change registration to vote for Bernie. You can do it online, and it takes 5 minutes tops:

    Current action for Oregon is to ensure registration and phone bank prospects. Ground game here soon.

    The problem I have with Bernie is, If I vote for him and he becomes president, half of my paycheck will be gone. No thanks! I work hard for my money and I definitely don’t want the government to take any more of it. They take enough as it is. I liked bernie at first, but the more i learn about Socialism the more Im hating it. Plus I dont see any countries that are thriving on it. Is there any countries in the world where socialism is actually working and working well?

    So does that mean If I go back to school and get a masters degree or a PHD and start making real money, will I have to start sharing the money I make? How does that make sense?

    Dork, you’re not in the 1% rich. You won’t feel a thing.

    By the way, Bernie has been seen taping campaign signs to poles with black tape.

    My kind of guy.
