Hard pass: Jane Sanders signs up the usual suspects for her new progressive institute

The Bernie Sanders fans who had no interest in donating to Hillary Clinton’s “Onward Together” racket now have a place they can call their own. Jane Sanders on Wednesday announced the launch of the Sanders Institute to find progressive solutions to economic, environmental, racial, and social justice issues.

Joan Walsh finds it ‘jarring’ to hear Dem politicians use ‘he’

Bernie Sanders was first up at Monday night’s #DemTownHall, and considering that Joan Walsh admits to findingit “jarring” to hear a Democratic politician rely on the generic male pronoun “he,” the entire event must have been a bumpy ride. The truth is, there are plenty of gender-neutral pronouns out there, but no one seems to have decided which set to use. Thexefamily seems to have the largest following in the United States, and we’d be thrilled for Democratic politicians to start using it their speeches.

Old white person. (Vox announced last year that the sexist word “guy” had to go.)

It’s cool for now; education through punishment is coming.
