consultants are sandburs

The Hollywood set design fails to cover this will be a one week turkey farm.

Either get rid, permanently (as in forever) of the superdelegate stuff, or explain why Jill Stein is not the most wholesome and intelligent and well thinking candidate still running.

BOTTOM LINE They ain't super. They're slugs. Hacks. Party stiffs.

They have been honestly explained as the Party equivalent of: Putting Roundup on the grassroots.

It is that simple, and Bernie insiders and Clinton family insiders can shake hands all they want, but true progressives should use their feet, not their hands.

Let the Clinton family prove their mojo - winning without any unearned progressives' pliancy.

Tim Kaine and all.

Forgot to mention. Trustworthy. Jill Stein is trustworthy. Having never personally met her but viewing much YouTube Jill Stein video, I cannot imagine her ever cozening up to the likes of Debbie Wasserman Schultz. She has too much integrity.

Stein: Not in it for the money. No family foundation; no Goldman Sachs. Just character and quality. And if the inner party intransigents want to make no real conciliatory appeasement to progressives, it is their choice, not mine.

All I will do is vote.

_____________FURTHER UPDATE______________
Here it is in a nutshell. If you stay home it will hurt down-ticket. If you leave the top choice blank, it will not be counted. If you vote for Jill Stein, in numbers, it will be counted and it will be noticed. Clinton-Kaine might still win and if so bless them. Trump-Pence could win, and the nation could survive four years of that. After all we survived eight Gipper years. They were evil, but they were how it was. If it would take four Trump-Pence years to wake up something resembling a conscience among the DNC and inner party, good. If that is insufficient they might be buying eight years of Trump-Pence, but we make our decisions, they make theirs. And progressives who hold their nose and do the "lesser evil two-step" yet again as if forever, they cannot be faulted for seeing things differently. It is how the process, as humanly imperfect as it is, resolves things in ways nobody but a zealot can love, but in ways we each have to tolerate.

__________FURTHER UPDATE___________
A parting thought is how discouraging it is to me, among the elderly, to see the young so callously abused and disregarded with the student loan thing, and the unemployment Angst their lives will entail. Both parties have abandoned them to the wolves, and they deserve better. They will inherit the earth, and the bitterness being earned in their hearts against the political and fiscal powers that be will one way or another be resolved. Those powers are reprehensible toward the young, and should stop.

__________FURTHER UPDATE___________
That colossal piece of work - only now and only because of Wikileaks and not with anything resembling a conscience or a sense of fair play - is stepping down, and instead of universal ringing denunciation from every corner of the earth, there is, per Kos, this:

That is an insult. It is not enough. That entire corrupt stable needs to be fully, completely mucked. To have any credibility. Any.

Then, this, hat tip to an occasional reader, the center of disservice to voters nationwide has gall to solicit again:

Corruption can be so very, very tiring. Let us HOPE for CHANGE, in one tiny corner of the nation, a single Congressional District, to send the pack of assholes a resounding message. It may happen. It may not. But this:

He may not be a Wellstone. He could even be Donald Trump's or Scalia's bastard child for all it matters; he is NOT Debbie Wasserman Schultz. That is what matters. The bigger the turnout, the bigger the margin; the better. And should DWS win, per hopefully an honest vote count, than so be it. I don't live there. I can't vote there. I can hope.
