The following tweets from Bernie Sanders’ feed don’t mention Hillary Clinton by name, but it’s not hard to read between these lines:

In an interview, Sanders softened that position, but only slightly:

What does Barbara Boxer think about that?

Things are getting real in the Dem race.

It’s actually quite entertaining. Continue, candidates!

  • Gloves R. Donahue

    Boxer’s daughter was married to one of Big Hillary’s crooked brothers.
    Not the one who sold a pardon to the drug dealer, the one who got in on the action in Haiti with the Clinton Slush Fund Charity scam. Well, okay they both got in on that.

    Nice family, the Clintons, but so were the Mansons at one time.

    • Andrew Curlutu

      Hmm, so the Clinton brother she married wasn’t the one that it looks like the Cali cartel paid off in calories?

    • JaneSmith100

      Right was gonna say. They’re related by marriage now & are sister-in-laws. Ugh.

      • 8o88y

        Imagine having to sit through Thanksgiving dinner with the two of them. A double serving of shrew.

  • Carolyn#OYSD

    You can be a moderate. You can be a progressive. But you cannot be a moderate and a progressive.

    Factually incorrect based on your new vernacular of “fluid”. If you FEEL moderate one day, you’re moderate. If you FEEL progressive later that day, you’re progressive.

    Funny how y’all always seem to make that work for you either way. Like Climate change.

    • Dan13

      It works great! I just self identified as a Syrian womenandorphans and now pull in $43,000 in entitlement checks.

      When you say ‘fluid’, do you mean when he wets himself?

          I like the way you mopped that up.

    • Jesse-Messy Hammer

      …Why is my sweet-tooth suddenly acting up? Oh yeah…

      • Andrew Curlutu

        Well, that was sadistically amusing…

  • almarquardt

    I honestly thought I would never hear the playground taunt, “I’m more leftist than you!”

    • Frustrated Teacher

      Expect them to strain a hip trying to spin as FAR to the left as they can to get the nomination…then they will ROCKET back toward the center JUST in time for the general election. It is the M.O. of every Dem candidate in the last 2 decades at least…

      The bright side: with the exponential increase in demand for popcorn, ethanol production will have to be discontinued.

      • Penny✓ItsSoFluffy! #GoBolts!

        It’s a win-win for everyone!

  • Russ

    Boxer defends Hillary’s (progressive) cred? Hillary has no credibility, period.

  • Wanderer

    Wow. Babs has enough self awareness to note that Bernie wasn’t actually a Democrat until about six months ago.

    This just illustrates how crazy Bernie and his supporters are–Her Inevitableness and Barry have not been bats**t insane enough for them.

  • Linda

    Which one is better at handling e-mail???

    • Andrew Curlutu

      Well, Beanie Bernie is probably smart enough NOT to have a bathroom server…because the jokes write themselves on that one.

  • CatHerder ✓fire! ✓fire!

    Both of you are misspelling Communist.

  • Dan13

    Babs, what do progressives say to the families when the bodies of outed Intelligence agents come home?

    • Tessa from Texas

      There must be a video somewhere to blame–hey, it worked for Benghazi, didn’t it?

  • Jeff Henderson ✓Bona Fide

    Oh, I get it now. Muslims are Muslims every day except the day they decide to kill infidels.

    • Penny✓ItsSoFluffy! #GoBolts!

      And Christians are evil, icky bitter clingers who are trying to create a theocracy and take away birth control pills every single day and twice on Sundays.

  • Please, god help us!

    You can be a moderate. You can be a progressive. But you cannot be a moderate and a progressive.

    Certainly you can … it occurs during “The Enlightenment”, that transition from realizing one has been a mindless controlled sheep and slowly begins to use clear rational analytical thought toward a total Conservative transformation. (Easily identified by embarrassment for past.)

  • Deborah Hallsted

    Boxer was an American that day. It was a lapse, never to be repeated.

  • Rogue Cheddar

    Ooh, a cat fight, couple of old poxy manxes vs an old tom with an empty bag. I better DVR this.

  • Rogue Cheddar

    I thought liberals were all about ‘nuance’?

    • JohnFLob

      Only if their uncles get divorces then remarry.

      • Rogue Cheddar

        Shemp: Ooh, the niece is nice!

      • Tessa from Texas

        Nah, if you’re a liberal, you don’t need to worry about old-fashioned concepts like marriage.

  • vetgal1970

    I swear we are through the looking glass

      And heading straight for the rabbit hole.

  • JosephBloughs ✓Viagrafied

    Twitchy, you need to issue a correction on your headline. You can’t defend something that doesn’t exist.

  • Rick Owen

    Sure, Boxer knows ALL about “proglodyte creds,” because I’m sure she, like many Demorlocks from San Francisco, including a number of her bosses and friends in the party, thought Jim Jones was the epitomy of everything they believe in… right up until his goons took some shots at her and others down in Guyana. So yeah, she knows a Proglodyte when she sees one.

  • Suzyqpie

    Hillary is attempting to resurrect her 2008 routine of Unbeatable and Inevitable Girl. Bernie’s not buying it.

    • Petrucio14

      The voters don’t seem to be either. Killary must have a bad case of deja-vu.

      • Suzyqpie

        Deja-vu, aka, ground hog day….again.

        • Andrew Curlutu

          Which she totally deserves. But, still…never count out the The Wicked Wench Witch of Wellesley until she actually loses the nomination.

    • DevilDocNowCiv

      yeah, even Dr. Ben “I’m gonna fly home, change of clothes, hang around DC rather than shoot to NH for next weeks Primary” Carson could be Hillary. With no-one but her to compete with, and her only cautiously able to attack him, he could beat her. I say “even” because he obviously has no “fire in the belly” or even “I’m really, really serious” attitude. It’s like someone convinced him, but didn’t inspire him to see the “need for him” deep down inside.

  • Tom

    And Barbara Boxer is an embarrassment to the state of California and the nation every day she draws breath. Dumb as a box of hammers. Makes Sheila Jackson Lee seem rational.

    • /sarcnado ☠

      Are we thinking of the same Sheila Jackson Lee?

    • KHSoldier(Ret)&Writer

      NOTHING makes Sheila Jackson Lee look rational. NOTHING!

    • JLM

      At least a box of hammers has some useful value.

  • Joan Carsey

    Actually, Ms. Boxer, Senator, ma’am sir – Bernie is an Independent.

  • marcus tullius cicero

    …DemoCommies at work!

    Whatever old man, Stalin and Castro were rich men.

    Most progressives I know think Che was just misunderstood.

    • Andrew Curlutu

      Yeah, It sickens me that stores actually sell Che tee shirts.

  • The Real Zach Smith

    Clinton may have been a moderate at one point, but she has followed her party as it has veered radically to the left.

    • Petrucio14

      She spins like a maple tree seed in a hurricane.

    • Aparition42

      She was never a moderate, but she was very adept at staying inside the Overton window while taking advantage of creeping normality to achieve her goals by capitalizing on low-information voters’ tendency to fall for the middle ground fallacy.

      If you evaluate any of her public statements by the standards of the day, she was always firmly left of center, but by highlighting increasingly extreme views as “the left”, progressives have effectively drug “the middle” past their side of the line and painted what used to be the common sense morality of 90% of the population as “extreme right-wing”.

  • Arttie the Deplorable

    Finally something Madam Boxer is good at, splitting hairs.

  • Petrucio14

    I love to see Democrats getting desperate! This much popcorn can’t be good for me, however!

    • Andrew Curlutu

      It’s better for you than what Commiecrats like Wide Load Michelle want you to eat. Just ask schoolkids.

  • Vindicated

    I’ve said for a long time; black, jewish, feminist, hispanic – doesn’t matter. If you are Liberal, it’s Liberal First.

    Turns out that may not be the case with VAGINA!

  • Andrew Curlutu

    How can somebody with no honor defend somebody with no honor? It comes natural, I guess.

  • wharfrat

    What is Boxer talking about?,the Democrats have no honor,look at who they have in our White House!!

  • objectivefactsmatter

    Progressives are not against TPP. They have to play to their voter base.

    Sanders is a lousy progressive. He doesn’t know it’s about coopting communism, not actually, you know, starting a revolution.

  • Jerry Shelton

    It is 2016 so this is fair. You can self identify as a “Progerate”. But only if you really feel that way in your safe space.
