Jerry Brown just endorsed Hillary.
It's not what I would call a full-throated endorsement, but still: It's an endorsement. Is he sincerely for
Hillary (as opposed to being against
Trump)? Yes, I think so. Brown has reached the age where one does not bullshit.
Naturally, the BernieBullies are calling Jerry Brown an Establishment shill. Actual statement from a Sandernista to Brown (addressed rhetorically): "on your way out of the California sunset, you should have never shit on your Liberal friends. Fuck off, asshole."
The BernieBots simply cannot understand why so many people are coming to despise them. If Jerry Brown is an Establishment shill, then let's have more Establishment shills!
In answer to this BernieBilge, a Kos
writer offered some wise words:
The big secret is that Hillary is actually proposing increasingly and impressively liberal policies which, if the Bernie Crowd would actually take a breath and read/consider, they might recognize as huge improvements over any major Dem proposals since FDR.
Free national child care?? That’s pretty radical and would have a HUGE impact on helping the poor out of poverty. It’s also a doable legislative event if we take the senate and flip the house in 2018 or 2020.
Against TPP? Same as Bernie.
The disagreements seem to come down to Bernie’s $15 national minimum wage and Hillary’s tiered national minimum wage increase.
I have no idea what their differences are on foreign policy since Bernie hasn’t really made any concrete foreign policy statements.
