The wonderful Bernie Sanders answering a question on doling out bonuses on Wall St after they burned a multi trillion dollar hole in the economy:
Last week, fanatic rightwing billionaire Charles Koch proclaimed his ideological solidarity with Bernie Sanders on the issue of corporate welfare in America. He is lying.
Wherever you stand on the political spectrum, it is impossible not to respect this. His compassion for the most needy and his unwillingness to sell out to gargantuan corporate interests that have corrupted the US political system are a real rarity in the current political climate.
During a House-Senate budget conference committee meeting on Wednesday, Sen. Bernie Sanders took the time to school his Republican colleagues on the actual causes of the deficit.
"How Bernie Sanders, the son of two Polish immigrants, who lost half of his direct family to the Holocaust and has worked tirelessly for those who have the least in America can be cast as "too white" is literally beyond my abilities to comprehend."
Knowing his supporters well, Sanders decided to wait until the anger had simmered down before coming out publicly for Clinton. It was simply smart politics, not sour grapes as many Clinton supporters seem to believe.
And everybody else is too mad at Obama for doing a totally brilliant thing. Take a freaking deep breath, people.
