Which Sanders Supporting Idiots Are Your Favorite Sanders Supporting Idiots?

My favorite idiots supporting Sanders are the ones who were also the idiots who supported Nader as well as the ones who were also idiots who abandoned Obama because he governed as he said he would. Of course, not every Sanders supporters is an idiot: some are Democrats who will gladly support the eventual Democratic nominee against the vile Republicans even when she turns out to be Clinton but believe his campaign invigorates the progressive wing of the Democratic Party or educates Americans more generally about more progressive policy goals. I once hoped that would be true as well. I have been sorely disappointed by the superficiality and disrespect of the actual Sanders campaign. But I can sympathize with those who still want that to be possible.
