Editor's note: In order to circumvent internet censorship, today's Caitlin Johnstone essay has been replaced with an op-ed by Snooty McCentrist of the National News Conglomerate. NNC: Obey.

After Bernie Sanders failed to impress in his underwhelming consecutive victories in Iowa and New Hampshire, it's time for his far-far-left extremist base to grow up and face reality: there's no way he can beat Trump. Especially with people like me churning out all these op-eds every day to make sure that he can't.

Go there. It's worth your time.

Some of it hits too close to home.

If you can’t take it from me, take it from the cold, hard numbers: if Democrats want to beat Trump, they need to nominate a centrist. Someone who rejects the extremes of Bernie’s far left and Trump’s far right and instead espouses sensible, middle-of-the-road values like endless war and military expansionism, rapacious ecocide, corrupt plutocracy, crushing domestic austerity measures, new cold war nuclear escalations, continued deregulation of sociopathic financial and commercial institutions, police militarization, unprecedented levels of imprisonment, Orwellian surveillance programs, internet censorship, and ever-mounting authoritarianism.

That sounds a lot like the centrist policies enacted under Presidents Clinton and Obama.

It makes me laugh and cry, alternatively.

I forwarded it to my husband, but I’m not sure he’ll get it. He has the Trump Derangement Syndrome bad, god love him.
