Feel the Bern: Prog conference-goer clues in Sanders about Obamacare irony

The annual progressive Woodstock called Netroots Nation in Phoenix (whatever happened to those Arizona boycotts anyway?) wasn’t without its entertaining moments:

The Vermont senator faced chants and heckling as well, but Sanders continued talking. Asked what he had done in the Senate to benefit black Americans, he started to talk about the 2010 Affordable Care Act.

“We can’t afford that!” heckled Elle Hearns, a 28-year-old Ohio-based coordinator for the LGBT rights group GetEqual.

Excuse me for a second…

Bernie should have used a hot dog cannon to fire free pints of Ben & Jerry’s into the crowd as a distraction to dissuade such comments.

Hillary Clinton skipped the Netroots convention, the clearest sign yet that the uber progressive wing of the Democrat Party needs to dig deeper and give to the Clinton Foundation. She knows they’ll all end up voting for her anyway.

Bonus:

Dem candidate Martin O’Malley actually had to apologize for having had the audacity to say “all lives matter”:

Later, O’Malley drew boos as he said: “Black lives matter. White lives matter. All lives matter.”

After his appearance, O’Malley addressed those comments on a radio show being recorded at the convention hall.

“When I said those other two phrases, I meant no disrespect,” O’Malley told the online radio show “This Week in Blackness.” “I did not mean to be insensitive in any way.”

Thanks to the activists in the party that cares most for humanity in its entirety, O’Malley will never make the mistake of saying “all lives matter” ever again.
