Gnashing of Teeth

NY Times reporter Jeff Zeleny wrote this account of the response to the announcement that Michigan delegates, with 1/2 a vote each, will in fact be seated at the convention.:
Supporters of Mrs. Clinton jeered the decision, loudly booing and hissing the members of the group as their faces were shown on a large screen in the room.

One woman, wearing a blue “Team Hillary” shirt, shoved a man in a suit and tie with a small Obama button on his lapel. Another woman in a white Clinton shirt hung her head in her hands.

“That was a crime!” a man shouted. “McCain in 08! McCain in 08!” a woman yelled from the back of the room. “No-bama! No-bama!”
Hillary, can you tell your supporters to chill the fuck out? This is not "vigorous debate," this is some kind of intra-party Two Minute Hate. Yes, the outliers of the group are not representative of the whole, but where is your leadership in this? These people and stories like this become, fair or not, your legacy.

Make a statement decrying this shit.
