Today’s the big day – UNITY Day (Also known as ‘The Day We Can Officially Begin Ignoring Delusional Bernie Or Bust Folks’) – as Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders will be holding a joint rally (during the show!) where he’s expected to endorse her. For what it’s worth, Sen. Sanders – whom every decent Lefty has always been proud to have on our side – has pushed for and gotten some serious changes in the party platform. He’s done what so many on the Left didn’t do in 2010 and 2014 – stuck around, fought it out, and did the hard work of pressuring people he AGREES with to go just a bit harder.

In other news, President Obama, Vice President Biden, and former President George W. Bush will all be at the memorial service in Dallas today, meeting with the families of those killed, and talking with community and police officials to see how they can be of help.
