The [Tuesday] Papers

This is the issue; we can lock up Hillary later.

*

But the narrative!

Bernie supporters on the floor - and in the precincts - are pissed. And they should be. Besides, the DNC e-mail leak showing the game was indeed rigged, they are as opposed to Hillary as they would be, say, Mitt Romney or John McCain. A lot of charts like this are going around (there's a better one, but I couldn't find it; if you know the one I mean, send it to me!), they explain why:

So it's understandable - and even appropriate - that there's a lot of discord (even rage) on the convention floor. So be it. That's what conventions are for, even if journalists thinking through the prism of political strategists instead of journalists think they should be exercises in unity. You want a lockstep piece of pre-determined theater? You want to cover a three-day commercial instead? Cover the divisions as they are - based on the issues and on institutional corruption - and not on the cynical calculations of a lot that has lost their way.

*

Remember, the concern trolling of conservatives is just that: trolling.

*

Hint, hint.

*

Yes, I love the grace of their kill lists, drone wars, unprecedented attacks on journalists and whistleblowers, and worldwide spying regimen the likes of which the planet has never before seen. At least they're funny on late-night talk shows while ignoring the poor and chatting up their banker friends.
