Let Me Bask in the Glory of This Moment

Hillary Clinton's backers are resorting to calling Bernie Sanders a socialist:

Democrats backing Hillary Clinton, nervously eyeing Senator Bernie Sanders’s growing strength in the early nominating states, are turning to a new strategy to raise doubts about his candidacy, highlighting his socialist beliefs to warn that he would be an electoral disaster who would frighten swing voters and send Democrats in tight congressional and governor’s races to defeat.

Living in one of the named communities that would welcome a full-on raging socialist, I've actually taken some grief for calling Sanders a social democrat--which is how Sanders describes himself.

So allow me to relish this experience of hearing those whose knuckles are supposed to be several more inches above the ground than mine are calling Sanders a socialist--and not as a compliment.
