In response to the BernieBullies screaming that the system is rigged, Nate Silver tweets
: "The system is rigged in favor of the candidate who's won 3 million more votes. Unbelievable."
Actually, we must be clear: The system was rigged in Bernie's favor.
Proof one: Hillary won the primary in Washington state.
Unfortunately, the primary is non-binding. The delegates are based on the caucuses, which the BernieBullies were able to game -- he got nearly 73 percent of the caucus votes to Hillary's 27 percent.
Proof two: Nebraska. Same story. Clinton won a non-binding primary
, 61-39. But she lost the caucus, 58-42.
We need no further proof to declare all
caucuses corrupt and undemocratic. If not for the rigged caucuses, Sanders would have nothing like his current totals -- he would not have developed any momentum, he would have been treated as a fringe candidate, and he would not have garnered so many donations.
The BernieBullies are engaging in classic mirror imaging, pretending to be the victims when they are, in fact, the victimizers. And they have no counter-argument. All they can do is resort to their usual disgusting tactics: Name-calling, false accusations of bad faith, changing the subject. They cannot specifically address the results in Washington and Nebraska, and they cannot address the larger issue of inherently undemocratic caucuses. They have no argument
