The reason I asked, though, is because you would’ve thought Mick was doing the funky chicken on the DNC stage last night, the way the young women were mopping up tears as Bernie took to the microphone.
That is, until he mentioned Hillary Clinton, at which point 50 percent of them began to boo the old fart.
The booing started immediately, with many people in the audience giving Mr. Sanders a thumbs-down sign. But Mr. Sanders was quick to wave the crowd to be quiet and to chide them for their response.
“It’s easy, it is easy to boo,” he said. “But it is harder to look your kids in the face who would be living under a Donald Trump presidency.”
“What the political revolution means is we keep going,” he said. “We think big, not small. We have the guts to take on the billionaire class.”
Of course that will work with the 20 percent of Bernie supporters who actually know what he believes; the other 80 percent will still be shaking their heads on November 8 and wondering how their Don Quixote could have sold out without a fight on the convention floor.
Through Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Hillary Clinton pulled off the most effective drive-by since Stanley “Tookie” Williams was running the Westside Crips, and Bernie just stood there, touted his toothless revolution and sucked up to the establishment.
Well, the old kicker could be dead by November, but the millennials do have one thing right; Bernie is the future of the Democratic Party. Old, feeble, and sundowned on reality.
The real future of the Democratic brand was more than evident to anyone who bothered to look.
There were no American flags in Philly last night. That is unless you were lucky enough to be outside when some creepy Bern Out set one on fire. There were Soviet flags and Palestinian flags, but no U.S. flags.
They were wasteful and selfish, and unrepentant for any of it.
Also as usual, this week’s DNC bash will leave a bigger carbon footprint than the UN does in a year. Double, if Leonardo DiCaprio shows up. Typical Democrat hypocrisy.
But so far there have been none of the rapes, murders, arson, pillaging and pooping in public that usually attend big Democratic mob functions.
And I suppose to Democrats that’s progress you can believe in.
Or at least one less messy scandal to cover up.
