I was a Hillary supporter way back when she was running against Obama and remain one today. That said, I don't believe most people think about Bernie anymore. He's just a minor nuisance, like a housefly you want to swat away. But by bringing this up again, you're kind of being a jerk. Either that or too lazy to Google an atheist meme for an overnight post.
But by bringing this up again, you're kind of being a jerk**Who is a "jerk"? This is G's blog?! Don't like it leave! He can bring up what ever he wants again and again and again!That being said, Bernie is like the Guest who won'[t leave the party, he has snarfed up all the food and drink and refuses to leave.That is how I see it.Kind of reminds me of Palin, her 15 mins were up years ago but she won't leave either.... I hope Bernie is not that stupid.
6:06 If you see Bernie as an interloper, that is your opinion. It's a short-sighted shallow opinion, but it's yours, none the less.And thank you for showing the dissenters the door... you're like the hostess who won't let anyone in who is not in costume because you are worried about what the neighbors will think.
6:06 If you see Bernie as an interloper+++Where was THAT said?"you're like the hostess who won't let anyone in who is not in costume because you are worried about what the neighbors will think."Huh?No to be CLEAR, Bernie is like the guy at the "last call" every night who won't leave the Bar! Is that clear enough for you?You seem to have comprehension problem.I'm not showing "dissenters" the door, most of us have been silent, because of not wanting to hurt the little fee,fees of the Bernie bros. We have had to celebrate a Historic time in America, (no Amerikka) in silence not to hurt the little fee,fees of the Bernie bros.No anymore. Suck it Buttercup!Bernie needs to go.Bottom line.
Sour grapes leave quite a stench 7:02. Grumpy bernie has a lot of grumpy supporters who have been given NO direction from their leader as to what to do now. He is hiding away counting his money and lucking wounds and has left all of you at the lurch. I understand why the only thing you feel you should do is attack the nominee-he sure hasn't endorsed nor embraced her but then he never has been a democrat so maybe he just doesn't care who our nominee is. In America we can speak freely in person or on a blog. Why can't you bernie bros understand that concept?
There is so much BS that his last stand Busters are pulling right now. I would enumerate, but just scan social media. From Nebraska to Chicago to WA...They are not Democrats; they are anarchists.
Anonymous7:02 AM,Oh, the irony. You're dishing out the dissent and criticism to Gryphen on his own blog. But get all butt hurt when people disagree with you.
Learn the word "magnanimity."
That word is far too big for Alaskans to understand, even the purported liberals.
Bernie and his supporters need to learn the words "reality" and "losing gracefully".
Anonymous5:20 AMBernie and his supporters need to learn the words "reality" and "losing gracefully".***Agreed!!!Seems to be a HUGE issue for them to face reality!Happy Father's Day Gryphen and all IM dad's!
Hillary would be upset with Gryphen if she found out he was pushing this shit. That is, if Hillary knew Gryphen existed.
" Mr. Trump suggested that all Muslim immigrants posed potential threats to America’s security and called for a ban on migrants from any part of the world with “a proven history of terrorism” against the United States " ~Donald Trump__Anonymous4:54 AMThat word is far too big for Alaskans to understand, even the purported liberals. ________Kind of has the "same ring" to it?! We all know a "Certain" Alaskan Family & Minions who would love to steer people away from this blog, especially as revaluations about Bitchol begin to surface.Sorry but no cigar, EPIC Fail, RWNJ!Just makes me want to read MORE HERE!
Anonymous6:35 AMHillary would be upset with Gryphen if she found out he was pushing this shit. That is, if Hillary knew Gryphen existed.***Oh this is so Hilarius!!!So now the Berniebro proports to know what Hillary is thinking!?Why exactly..... would Hillary be upset with WHAT shit?**Crickets**Actually she would be LHAO and prob is when she see's this.She has quite a sense of humor despite what the trollz say.
Magnanimity does not negate celebration nor does it hinder observational humor the nasty liberal.Bernie has not accepted defeat nor has he graciously endorsed the winner-he doesn't yet even acknowledge her win.This isn't war-a democrat and an independent campaigned for president and the democrat won.
Anonymous6:35 AM,You know Hillary, do you? You have spoken to her personally and now speak for her?
Magnanimity must be the "word" of the WEAK.It seems to appear many times in this thread alone.P.s. Fuck you>4:54
To answer your query, Yes. I'm not mocking (anyone but #DeadbeatDonald)"In War: Resolution. In Defeat: Defiance. In Victory: Magnanimity. In Peace: Goodwill."~Winston Churchill
Kick and scream all ya want bern. Hilary must hand you the vp position to win. Otherwise? Those be damned bern suppporters may defect.
The cartoon should depict not only Bernie as a toddler but his supporters like you as well.
The cartoon should depict not only Hillary as a big, fat surly old Queen, but her supporters like you ~ as well.
Ooh - fat comments. Smart retort. /s
Anonymous6:40 AM,Thanks for proving my point at 5:56.
I'm not. And you should get past your obsession. It's not healthy or helpful.
I don't think Hillz is going to hand him the VP nod.No way, no how.He's like a overgrown baby making demands. And his supporters also, too! like the tea bags.I don't know what happened to Bernie, the power went to his head, ego took over.May the best Woman win! :)
Sanders should acknowledge reality. Delusion is not healthy or helpful.
A lot of excitement for Hillary Clinton this weekend as she became a grandma for the second time! Remember when Chelsea had her first child in 2014 and the right-wing media claimed that it was all planned to foil their attacks on Hillary Clinton?Beaglemom
Thanks for that nice bit of news. I'm guessing it only seemed like a short pregnancy to me because it wasn't mine LOLGotta go see what she had now.
Bernie Sanders = #AlsoRan
Enough, Gryphen. Just stop. Hillary won the nomination. Isn't that good enough for you? You're really sorting your true colors as a bully when you keep this your relentless attacks on a person who legitimately trying to wake up Americans and get them involved in the political process. You are now as bad as the most dedicated Bernie Bro.
CorningNY4:51 AMEnough, Gryphen. Just stop. Hillary won the nomination. Isn't that good enough for you? __What?!? Why don't you tell Bernie to stop, making a fool of himself?!This is Gryphen's blog, he can blog about Bernie being a sore loser anytime he wants. Deal!All you Bernie bro's have a problem with reality.Deal!Y'all sound like the c4 p'rs!
Wake me up when Bernie concedes. Thanks.
When Sanders congratulates Hillary and acknowledges her accomplishment.
Sorest winners in history.
Sorest anarchists in history.
Say what you will, Bernie had/has many supporters who are closer to Hillary than Trump. What is the value in taunting them like this? Let's work on unity and more elevated discourse.
Exactly. Gryphen isn't doing Hillary any favors.
Please, let's move on from Bernie. Hillary says she's working with him, let it go. It's best not to pick at a wound that is starting to heal.
Hey if you Berniebots don't like your hero being mocked then perhaps you should send him e-mails telling him to finally accept reality and concede.There will be no "healing" until after that.Sanders took what was once a dignified and important campaign, and then sabotaged it by being too obstinate to accept that it is over. So yes, that makes him a target of ridicule.
I'm not only dismayed by your chagrin with a democratic system, but also appalled and repelled.Your Queen is a little smarter and tougher than that for which you give her credit.
"dignified and important campaign and sabotaged it"Oh bullshit, from the beginning you've treated Sanders' campaign as unimportant, a nuisance, in the way of a coronation of Clinton and Sanders as an undignified interloper. Now when claiming he's "sabotaging" his legacy fits your narrative to further demean and degrade Sanders are you calling his campaign "important".
Name calling has never changed anyone's mind, gryphen. Maybe you should e-mail Hilary and tell her to denounce more war."I have a plan to go after ISIS. Not to contain them, but to defeat them. It has three parts. First, deprive them of territory they occupy in Syria and Iraq. Second, dismantle their network of terrorism. Third, do more to keep us safe. We have to have an American-led air campaign, we have to have Arab and Kurdish troops on the ground. We have got to go after everything from North Africa to South Asia and beyond."Source: 2015 ABC/WMUR Democratic primary debate in N.H. , Dec 19, 2015
His campaign was important because without it Hillary would have had to stand on the stage and talk to herself during debates. Plus he also brought up some reasonable points. SOME reasonable points. And I was not against his campaign from the beginning which you confirm yourself by searching for my older posts. But hey, nice try.
But hey, nice try. I've been called a berniebot and not a real democrat on this site, it stung at first but realized first and foremost I am an anti-warist.But you skipped over the most important part. I would never vote for Cruz because he said "If I am elected president, we will utterly destroy ISIS," the Texas senator and Republican presidential candidate told reporters. "We won’t weaken them. We won’t degrade them. We will utterly destroy them. We will carpet bomb them into oblivion. We will arm the Kurds." How is that much different except more pleasant wording from Hillary saying "Not to contain them, but to defeat them." and "We have to have an American-led air campaign, we have to have Arab and Kurdish troops on the ground."
"without it Hillary would have had to stand on the stage and talk to herself during debates"Bullshit. Since mid-March you've been calling for Bernie to get out of the way so Clinton could "pivot" her attention to the general election, not have further debates an old socialist. You have mocked and demeaned Sanders and his wife in many cruel and nasty posts. so hey, nice try.
Susie, I guess you weren't for Bernie then, because he has VOTED to authorize more wars and military spending than Hillary ever did. FACT.
Only the cartoonists are missing Bernie Sanders.For everyone else it's a case of "forgotten but not gone".
There are plenty of people on Facebook who are still insistent that Bernie *will* win the nomination, on account of the superdelegates, blah blah fishcakes. They are convinced that Bernie really won all the states except for the blatant cheating that nobody has managed to actually prove. I think Bernie's staying in, in the hopes of improving his position post-election. I believe that he's damaging his own position when magnanimity and graciousness (such as Hilary demonstrated in 2008 when Obama won the nod) would serve him better. In the meantime, I have no respect for someone who won't release tax records and explains that his wife does them. No matter who does them, they're his records, and he ought to have released them early... but he didn't, and that in itself raises questions.
I have the feeling that Bernie never released his tax returns because they would show his Wall St mutual fund investments.Bernie is a poor loser and so are his supporters. This crap about farting at the convention shows their level of maturity.He should concede,go back to VT, keep his mouth shut and next election he can continue his "revolution" as the Independent he is.
Facebook has b/c a world of "crazy" a little bubble of fantasyland.Full of little & big egos.I'm so glad I'm not there. I hear many are SICK of facebook.
His supporters would be very disheartened if Bernie QUIT.Do y'all hate quitters, or NOT?
@anon 7:19amAdmitting you lost is not quitting. Pretending you didn't lose and are still in the running is just beyond sad.
When you lose it is not quitting, that implies you won and can't handle it (like Palin). When you lose you concede.
I hope a Democrat runs against Sanders in Vermont and wins. Beaglemom
Beaglemom, it's happening! Al Giordano (the journalist, not the Wounded Warriors guy) is organizing it!
Very interesting! TY Beaglemom.
It's not over till the convention. That is why Hillary is the presumptive nominee, and Bernie is actually making hillary move to the left. She is a centrist.
Bull. Bernie is in the NRA's pocket, and leads a white people populist movement. He's the centrist.
Bernie's already gotten one of his highest priority demands: DWS is out. There's no reason to expect he won't get additional concessions before the convention.
DWS was already leaving, 9:30! You all are so dumb!
LOL, DWS quitting a month early wasn't Bernie's doing, that was Debbie. Bernie will get no demands at the convention because that is not how things are changed at the convention. They are individually voted on or are you suggesting the Democratic Party change it's democratic ways into communist ways? Because that will never happen.
DWS was always going to be out once Hillary sewed it up, that's almost always what happens so the nominee's campaign runs under one agenda not two. Bernie deserves NOTHING and every day he clings to his grifting machine he deserves even less than nothing.He'll get it too, booted right off of every committee he is on.
Look at this. Some of Bernie's last supporters think he's going to split up the final donations pool with THEM, socialist style. Hahaha.https://twitter.com/sherrilee7/status/744247812792025088
@anon 10:38amLMAO!!!! I guess they don't realize that Bernie's staff has already stated he is going to make sure he walks away with a cool 10 million for himself and Baby Jane. But since the only Bernie Bot we have in my family thinks if he was elected that she would get free dope from him I can believe that are that gullible.
When Sen. Bernie Sanders, the now-vanquished Democratic presidential candidate, returns to Capitol Hill to vote Monday, he is expected to be accompanied by his constant traveling companions from the campaign trail: the U.S. Secret Service.Although Hillary Clinton has clinched the party’s nomination, Sanders retains one of the trappings of a top-notch candidate. A team of agents still guards him at his home, where they’ve constructed a small watch station on the property. They travel with him on commercial and charter flights and use a motorcade to whisk him through cities he visits. And they recently marched alongside him during a gay-pride event here in his home town after the Orlando shootings.Such round-the-clock protection can cost taxpayers more than $38,000 a day. And with the potential for the Secret Service to be watching over Sanders through the Democratic convention in Philadelphia five weeks from now, the taxpayers may get stuck with a big security bill long after his campaign receded from the daily cable-news cycle.The continued security presence also reflects a larger reality of Sanders’s muddled standing in the Democratic race. He has virtually no chance of becoming the party’s nominee, and he is no longer pressing his case to Democratic leaders that he should. Yet Sanders remains an active candidate because he has not “suspended” his campaign or taken any other steps that would alter his official status.“He’s in a kind of political purgatory right now,” said Mary Anne Marsh, a Democratic strategist who has worked for neither the Clinton nor Sanders campaign. “He has the perception of still running for president, but he’s not doing that in reality.”https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/an-expensive-reminder-that-sanders-still-hasnt-dropped-out-his-secret-service-detail/2016/06/19/a3f717c6-3555-11e6-8ff7-7b6c1998b7a0_story.html
Grifting is addictive.
Boo fucking hoo Sanders won't suspend, concede and is still entitled to Secret Service protection. Just more of the same petty-ass bullshit from the Washington Post: Clinton campaign's newspaper of record.
9:33 - why does he get protection when he won't release his taxes? Grifter alert!
Oh, so he might show up to the job he is collecting a paycheck for this week instead of hiding out in Vermont?
He costs the US taxpayers $36,000 a day for each day he stays in. Thanks, Bernie.
Correction: $38,000 a day for the taxpayers because Bernie won't concede:http://www.slate.com/blogs/the_slatest/2016/06/19/sanders_refusal_to_end_campaign_costs_taxpayers_38_000_a_day.html
10:39 - You are wrong. Think it through instead of parroting something that makes no sense. The Secret Service didn't employ more agents to protect Sanders so there's no added cost to taxpayers for protecting Bernie Sanders.When Sanders' Secret Service protection ends they'll be assigned somewhere else and still be paid. Make a note to yourself so you don't look like a dumbass again: there are only labor costs if workers are added. There is only labor savings if workers are eliminated. Protecting Bernie is cost-neutral.
11:32 - why should he be protected when he's no longer a candidate? Yes, he's wasting our money! You're the real dumdum. It's also in the Washington Post!

President Barack Obama is not mocking Bernie Sanders. Hillary Clinton is not mocking Bernie Sanders.Follow their lead.
Um, the President has real things to do currently, but he's never liked Bernie, esp. after 2012, when Bernie wanted to primary him. Note: Bernie did not have the guts to primary a man then...
We are not Barack Obama nor Hillary Clinton and we don not hold public office. Tell your candidate to stop wasting his donor's and tax payer's money, and stop grifting. Like a dead fish, he is starting to stink.
Well, one of the "real things" the President has done over the last 2 weeks is had several phone conversations and met with Sanders in the Oval Office. When's the last time Clinton's met with him?
9:34 - she sees him all the time and they will be campaigning together. They had to cancel their first joint appearance due to the tragedy in Orlando last week. Keep up! President Obama cannot stand Bernie! He calls Hillary his friend. Fact.
@anon 9:34amRight before he endorsed her campaign. So your point is that Bernie isn't admitting he lost because he is getting attention from Obama? Wow, Bernie is truly a loser.
Freedom of speech. We can say what we want about Sanders.
"right before he endorsed her""she sees him all the time"No he didn't. No she doesn't. Obama and Clinton haven't met in person in months. Canceling a joint appearance that hasn't occurred is not evidence of a meeting, just another lame attempt at a goalpost move.When he was in New York week before last, he declined to meet with Clinton, but he appeared on Jimmy Fallon! http://www.politico.com/story/2016/06/barack-obama-hillary-clinton-meeting-224002
"right before he endorsed her campaign"Nope. He met with Sanders right before he endorsed Clinton. He hasn't met personally with Clinton in months.
Sure 10:23. go back to 7th grade civics. the First Amendment starts with "Congress shall make no law..." You see how that works? It's prohibits the government from restricting your speech. It doesn't entitle you to say anything about anybody any time. When you write falsehoods defaming someone it's called libel.
Keep trying, fools who say the President & Hillary are not close! Of course he had to meet with problem child Bernie. Everyone always has to unite to try to get the problem child out of trouble.
7:18 he is making Hillary do nothing. Yes the primary was good for both of them however as Hillary exposed her true left leanings rather than playing it safe in the middle, bernie still never explained how he would get things done.bernie still didn't keep his word. Bernie still used campaign finances for a family vacay in Rome.While Bernie was collecting unemployment until he was 40 years old Hillary had been trying to get things done.You all act like bernie came up with universal healthcare. Some of us remember egg all over Hillary's face when she tried to push through healthcare reform while First Lady. Why don't you bernie bros list that when you list her misdeeds? What about when she traveled the world and shouted far and wide about women's issue being world issues? Doesn't that count for anything either in bernie world?Don't use her husband as your defense-his terms in the White House were his but I will say though you all lamant him now back when he was in office and when he left the country was experiencing an economic boom we haven't seen since then. No be was complaining then
"While Bernie was collecting unemployment until he was 40 years old "This is a patently false statement that undermines the rest of your post.
He did not have a job until he was 40. Fact.
Well Bernie didn't collect unemployment for that many yrs, he did not pay child support that he should have because he refused to work.
Okay 31 years of age, better now?
9:54 and 10:21 - classic goalpost moves - changing the criteria when the initial point has been answered. And your statements are patently false, too. Thanks for playing. By the way, don't you realize Clinton won and you don't have to slander Sanders anymore?
Who is slandering? Fact: Sanders did not have a regular paycheck until 40. Fact: Bernie was a deadbeat dad to his out of wedlock son who he made call him "Bernard." Take it up with Politico if you don't like it.http://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2015/07/bernie-sanders-vermont-119927
@anon 10:32amOh my, oh my, are you that much of a 'bot that you don't understand what facts are? Bernie was a loser deadbeat Dad that CHOSE not to work to avoid paying any child support. He was a loser then and is a loser now.
HELL O? >http://www.rawstory.com/2016/06/watch-9-year-old-girl-impersonates-hillary-clinton-and-critiques-her-immigration-policy/
Have you seen the 8th grader's imitation of Bernie? Hilarious!
Gryphen and his followers are certainly hateful towards the very people who are most needed to support Hillary in the general election. Unless, like Trump, you feel that you can do it alone and do not need the support of Bernie voters. There is a lot of people who are simply not that excited about Hillary for various reasons, and to constantly insult their intelligence is not the way to influence and win friends. I can't tell you the number of times when the response from people on this blog is simply telling me and others to F off. It truly doesn't reflect well upon Hillary supporters to have such vocal opposition to anyone who isn't ready to vote for her. I gave up my vote for Ralph Nader for Gore, but with this type of hatefulness of Hillary's supporters--you are convincing the most likely voters for Hillary to simply let the chips fall where they fall. She hasn't earned my vote yet. I believe she is more Republican than Democrat, and she isn't convincing on the issues that I care about.
Maybe you should understand that Hillary doesn't need the Bernie Bros for anything, now run along and practice farting.
BTW we don't "hate" Bernie, most of us just realize that Bernie is a useless old fool who more than likely suffers from dementia.
No one cares who you vote for but you. Grow up!
There's a pond with your name on it.'bye
Hillary's being one gracious winner, a quality I happen to like in a person.
Don't feed the trolls! It just goes directly to their thighs.
