The inevitable implosion of the democratic party at this point seems imminent, especially given that well-oiled machine Hillary Clinton could defeat Donald Trump, even with all of the ammunition the mainstream media gave her.

Her loss was embarrassing in a way that only soiled britches can convey.  The DNC was left a vulnerable mess after the election, and the only logical conclusion was for the party to embrace the young Bernie Bros who had attempted to coerce the party to head hard left.

Of course, given the poor track record that the democrats hold for doing what’s best of them, they went in the complete opposite direction and attempted to alienate the only enthusiasm they had left.

Democratic National Committee officials on Friday moved forward with a proposal to force the party’s presidential candidates to identify as Democrats, a move that drew immediate criticism from a top official in Bernie Sanders’ 2016 campaign.

The prospective rule change, approved by the DNC’s Rules and Bylaws Committee, would not necessarily impact Sanders, the independent Vermont senator who ran for president as a Democrat.

Sources familiar with the discussion said officials believed the rule change could help garner support for a separate bid to reduce the influence of superdelegates in the party’s presidential nomination process — a priority of Sanders’ supporters after the 2016 election. Both proposals are scheduled to be considered by the full DNC in August.

That explanation wasn’t good enough for Team Bernie.

Still, Mark Longabaugh, a senior adviser to Sanders’ 2016 presidential campaign, bristled at the DNC committee’s action.

“I really don’t get the motivation for the resolution at all,” he said. “You know, Bernie Sanders got 13 million votes in 2016. Thousands, if not millions, of those votes were young people and independents he brought into the Democratic Party. And I’m just stunned that the Democratic Party’s rules committee would want to try to make the Democratic Party an exclusive club, for which we want to exclude voters and large segments of the American electorate.”

Sanders has been forced to toe a difficult line after his capitulation to Hillary Clinton in the 2016 primaries, especially after it was discovered that, almost immediately after conceding to the corruption queen, Sanders and his wife purchased a $700,000 dollar lake house.

So much for democratic socialism, eh?
