Hey b*tch, switch votes.
Superdelegates supporting Hilary Clinton are getting angry, abusive phone calls and emails from Bernie Sanders' backers demanding they switch sides.
The pressure is intense, say Clinton superdelgates from states won by Sanders. Superdelegates are not "pledged" to the state victor and can vote whichever way they want.
That's leading to a torrent of unpleasantness.
...Sanders supporters have also been blamed for some of the disruptions at Republican front-runner Donald Trump's rallies. These aren't the first complaints about harassment by enraged Sanders devotees. When MoveOn.org, a progressive organization that endorsed Sanders, mobilized thousands of supporters to protest outside a Trump rally in Chicago last month, the protests turned so violent that the police arrived on scene and the event was cancelled.
Well, Sanders is a socialist. They tend to violence.
Unintentionally revealing quote of the week so far: "This is like something Trump would do!" Yeah, but it's not Trump doing it, is it.
Also revealing is the way Clinton superdelegates dismiss this groundswell of popular support for Sanders as somehow illegitimate.
