Bernie Sanders is now asking for money to help his supporters get to the Democratic convention.

"Airfare, I'm just asking for airfare dammit!"
Courtesy of the Washington Post:  

Sen. Bernie Sanders's presidential campaign sent its supporters an urgent call for donations Tuesday, saying it was up to them whether pledged delegates could afford trips to Philadelphia. 

"Here's the thing: Our delegates are not wealthy campaign contributors," wrote campaign manager Jeff Weaver in the email. "They're not party insiders or establishment elites. They're working folks, and it's not easy for many of them to fly to Philly and stay in hotels for a week. ... It's easy for the political establishment to navigate this and know whom to call to find the right way in. That, or they're wealthy enough to pay for themselves."

Oh yeah, let me dig deep into my savings to help undermine the Democrats at their own convention and give Donald Trump even more help during this election cycle.

No thanks, I'm with her.

The Post also has a story that takes Sanders to task over that condescending interview he did with Jake Tapper this weekend:

That's a stunning answer from Sanders. What he's saying -- if you read between the lines -- is that the ball is in Clinton's court when it comes to winning his endorsement. Not only does he think she needs to come to him, but he also believes she still has to prove that she is "prepared to stand with them [the American people], as they work longer hours for low wages, as they cannot afford health care, as their kids can't afford to go to college." 

Now seems like a good time to revisit the fact that Clinton has already effectively won the Democratic nomination over Sanders, not the other way around. It's good to remind yourself of that fact because from reading Sanders's quote above, you would assume he won.

Boy isn't that the truth?

Slate magazine also has a story on Sanders titled simply, "Bernie Blew It."

The article ends with this paragraph: 

As it stands, the Vermont senator has almost vanished from the news cycle, overshadowed by Clinton’s growing lead, overall Democratic unity, global events, and the never-ending emissions of Donald Trump. He’ll still matter to the shape and direction of the Democratic National Convention, but he could have had a larger, more visible role. Bernie Sanders had his shot, and he threw it away.

Now invariably this is where the butthurt Bernie-bots start asking me why I won't stop writing about Sanders and let him slink off the national stage in peace.

And my response to that is to say that I will be happy to never write about Sanders again just as soon as he endorses Clinton, officially ends his loser campaign, and actually slinks off the national stage.

    Check out the constant, vicious Berner attacks against Warren, Grijalva, Merkley, the CWA, etc. on their FB pages and in comment threads everywhere.

    Sanders doesn't have control of the "movement." The movement is now a mob action fueled by rage at being thwarted.

    He'll NEVER endorse Clinton -- partly because he's a narcissist who can't play well with others, but even more because he knows damn well his supporters will vitriolically turn on HIM if he does.

      That will teach the Dems to be nice to a interloper!
      I am sick of his demands! Isn't it the CONGRESS who makes the laws for alot of the "things" he is demanding of her? Do anyone think if WE HAD a Congress that gave a shit and put a $15 Min. wage bill in front of her, she wouldn't sign it?
      I don't even think he should be invited to the convention as anything but a Senator. And that is IT! Period.

    I am really sick of Bernie Sanders and his snide comments. He is insinuating that all the Clinton delegates are rich and well connected. He speaks of the dwindling middle class as if he was the only one to campaign on the issue. He alone is the only person to care about folks getting health care. Bernie is really starting to tick me off.

    The article in Slate, however, has it just right. The Democrats have already united without Bernie. Bernie has left himself behind. Democrats have moved on without him. Hillary and the Dems have a 50 State strategy to compete all across this nation.

    And he is still getting Secret Service protection - why? I can see that he just hates to give that up.

    If he doesn't concede prior to the convention, he will not get a speaking slot at the convention.

    No doubt he is upset that Clinton is not picking him for VP. Personally, I am delighted that Clinton is not even considering Sanders for any position within her administration. When you have Elizabeth Warren, you don't need grumpy Bernie Sanders.

    Too late now to get a decent room in Philly, they only hold those blocks of rooms for so long without a credit card.
    For those Bernie Bros that don't know what a credit card is ( and not your Mommy's) it's something having a good credit rating gets you by WORKING and spending wisely. Should have spent their allowances on something other than weed and they would have plenty of money for a weeks hotel stay and transportation costs and meals.

    Why would anyone run to become a delegate to a national convention without the money to pay for it? Not much fiscal responsibility there! i sure hop doesn't expect the Democratic Party to foot the bill. Not with the chaos his candidacy has caused in the party!

    1,879 delegates x 7 days x $15 tip = $197,295 (can't live on a $5 tip)

    The costs associated with being in Philadelphia for the convention have been known for months. Why didn't Sanders let his supporters know ages ago that it would be an issue for his delegates? Anyone who looked into the logistics of convention participation would find out quickly how difficult it is to get a hotel room in Philadelphia when there are major events in town. This is true with events much smaller than a national party convention. Letting things come to this is evidence of poor planning bordering on incompetence. And doesn't the Sanders campaign have plenty of money still? How will it be used?

    Sanders doesn't care about spending money wisely, otherwise he'd have rented out fewer stadiums and hired fewer musicians and used the money for voter education so the people who didn't understand the primaries in their state were made aware of what they had to do to vote for him. He did none of that, then blamed DWS for his lack of preparedness.

    So thoroughly agree with everyone's comments! This last whine has struck my last nerve.

    I used to go to lots of national conventions in my former life as an artist/teacher. Philly was on the list. Here's how students, teachers, SERIOUSLY struggling artists got it done:

    CARPOOL, or bus, or red-eye long lay-over flights.

    Booking a room with double beds (not necessarily the convention hotel) then moving the top mattresses on to the floor and tossing a coin for who gets the box springs! Bring your own towels and be sure to leave a generous tip on the dresser in hopes of getting away with it!

    As much as you can, bring food in a cooler and frequent the nearby grocery stores. Top Ramen is your friend.

    To add insult to injury, this was long before AirBnB existed and before all the Kick-Starter and GoFundMe stuff got started.

    I've got no sympathy for these whining losers.

  43. I am with you 100%! Am so tired of hearing Bernie Sanders, who only decided to become a Democrat when he wanted to run for president, lecture to me, a longtime Democrat activist, on what my party should look like. I have worked very hard to elect Democrats up and down the ticket for 25 years. Can he say the same? The majority of Democrats did not support him. If he really does not want a President Trump (and I am not sure that is not his ultimate goal), he should endorse Clinton and then work to elect her. Not just to defeat Trump but to elect Clinton. There is a difference!

    Even if every hotel room is booked in Philadelphia County during the convention it isn't going to be a problem for people to find a place to stay at the last minute. There are four suburban counties, five, if you include Camden County across the river and every one of those counties has access to the Septa rail system which can provide transport all the way to the convention, and in less time than it would take to drive yourself in your rental car.

    Philadelphia isn't your average country shithole anywhere else in the country. Accomodations weren't a problem when the Pope visited. It certainly won't be a problem handling convention delegates.

    So Bernie Sanders lost to Hillary Clinton and now Bernie Sanders is fundraising at the last minute to raise money to pay for his delegates trips to Philadelphia because they can't afford to go.

    My question is if Bernie Sanders had beaten Hillary Clinton and became the Democratic Party presidential nominee, would Bernie still have a fundraiser at the last minute to get all his delegates to Philadelphia?

    I think if Bernie was the Democratic nominee his delegates would not have any problems getting to Philadelphia.

    This is a matter of Bernie lost so why should I spend my own money to go to the DNC all the way in Philadelphia?

    This is why America said no to Bernie and no to Bernie's Freeloaders.

    Bernie has to have a fundraiser to pay to get his delegates to Philadelphia.

    Imagine Sanders standing at the DNC podium demanding free everything and he didn't have any delegates there to back him up and show interest in the new Democratic Socialist Party. Can you say embarrassing?

    That is why the last minute fundraiser.

    HEY BERNIE IF YOU WANT MONEY TO SEND YOUR DELEGATES TO THE DNC THEN ASK THE CROOKED PAC WHO COLLECTED MONEY IN YOUR NAME.

    The PAC collecting money in Sanders name sounds like they are as crooked as SARAHPAC

    'Feel Bern' PAC comes under scrutiny

    A fundraising committee that raised more than a quarter-million dollars targeting supporters of Bernie Sanders has apparently spent little on the election activities it boasted it would....

    More than 80 percent of the $199,116 spent by the PAC went to six individuals associated with the group, online marketing and advertising costs, audience targeting firms and transfers to limited liability companies (LLCs) that were formed only months ago, according to a review by The Hill. Four individuals only received one payment, while founder Kyle Prall and the PAC’s treasurer collectively took in $26,000 in the first quarter.
    Prall did not return calls from The Hill for comment. A phone number on FEC forms for the PAC’s treasurer belongs to a Texas business that said it had no record of the individual.

    The Socially Responsible Government PAC spent $3,101 during a visit to the Florida nightclub E11even Miami on Feb. 29 and, days earlier, spent a total of $1,167 at The Palms hotel and casino in Las Vegas. E11even Miami bills itself as an "immersive adventure encompassing the luxury and sophistication of a one-of-a-kind Ultraclub," with DJs, aerialists, go-go dancers and "exotic acts."
