Bernie Sanders Needs More Cash

Do you have any cash laying around? Instead of giving it to Hillary Clinton so she can beat Donald Trump, why not give it to Bernie Sanders so he can continue trying to destroy Debbie Wasserman Schultz and maybe cost the Democratic Party a House seat?

When he endorsed Hillary Clinton and spoke on her behalf at the somewhat-contentious Democratic convention last month, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) pledged "to do all that I can" to make sure she defeated Donald Trump this fall. Since the convention, his new group, "Our Revolution," seems to be devoting its energy to … defeating the Democratic Party establishment that backed Clinton.

Sanders has sent at least two emails to his army of grass-roots supporters since the convention ended, asking for money to continue his "revolution," a critical element of his primary-season pitch. The emails mentioned the Democratic National Committee, former committee chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.), the Democratic Party, and the Democratic establishment multiple times. They did not mention Clinton, Trump or the Republican Party (which would need to suffer a crushing defeat for Democrats to gain the majority Sanders would need for his progressive priorities to make it through Congress.)

Wasserman Schultz has a Sanders-endorsed primary challenger Aug. 30, who is trying to capitalize on the recent intraparty drama to unseat her. Several polls have shown Tim Canova eight to 10 points behind Wasserman Schultz, with a majority of voters who have never heard of him.

His revolution is not your revolution. It's about defeating Democrats. And that's why he went back to being an independent and that's why he doesn't care who controls Congress. The wooly-headed left is a cash cow, waiting to be milked.

These beach houses don't pay for themselves, you know...
