Jonathan Easley — Seething liberals vow revolution in Democratic Party

The Democratic Party implodes.

Progressives blame New Democrat Clintonism. The party establishment blames Bernie bots for betraying the party.

There is no presumptive leadership and a fight for power is on the table. If the discredited establishment wins, the party is finished.

If progressives win, they will have to build a new party and deal with how to fund it in a system that depends on large donations that depend on access and favors.

Motherland! Freedom! Putin!

It was all Putler's fault! I can imagine Prof. Rosser storming the White House, pitchfork in hand.
