#1 Corbyn's scary.
Bernie-Squeaky Fromme is a buffoon.

Corbyn controlled his Party.
Bernie-Squeaky Fromme will never come within an inch of power in his (lately adopted, new) Party.

Corbyn had no rivals.
Bernie-Squeaky Fromme has Warren to contend with on the left, and now Butt-Fug and Bloomie to his right ie not-entirely-left.

#2 Personally, I think the model works fine.

#3 How'd that work out for you? Jeremy's done, you lost all pretense of a majority, and Boris is gonna Brexit as fast as he can.

Riot in the streets and get beaten, physically, as well as electorally

#4 Corbyn faced a hostile media? Sargon doesn't count as media all on his own...

#5 Leftists are now doubly butt hurt and can't accept elections on two continents...

You can't always get what you want,
You can't always get what you want,
But if you try sometimes well you might find
You get what you need...Fa la la la

#6 Now claiming election was about Corbin, no Brexit, and need another one for that.

#7 Corbyn got in because Labour wanted to dump the unions, so they opened the party to anyone with 3 pounds a month. Half a million radicals joined and elected Corbyn. The party crashed and burned. That's the story here.

#8 ...reminds me of a comment attributed to Mondale after the 1984 election disaster - we open the tent to everyone and everyone walked out.

#9 It seems to take these writers a whole lot of words to avoid the truth. Corbyn lost because he is a socialist, anti-Semitic EU globalist and British voters rejected all of it.

#10 Actually If Corbyn HAD run as his principles would say and stuck with Brexit Labour would've done a lot better.

#11 The islamists made a bid for the UK, and they realized they'll have to retreat to try again later.

#12 The Brits realized they were about to lose their country too.

#13 And fervent supporters of both men treated their narrow defeats as quasi-victories
Yes, FIRST runner-up has a much better ring to it than LOSER.

#14 Lefties around the world peaked while Obama was in power. They sensed the decline and rejection with Trumps election but now I think they are really picking up on the momentum against them. Hopefully a lot will just give up on politics altogether and reconnect with the families they've driven away with talking points every big holiday.

#15 And hopefully the Conservative politicians on both continents won't blow it. I'm already reading nonsense about Conservatives taking up Liberal economic policies as a successful winner. No, please No.

#16 I'm thinking about discarding politics and taking up golf. Kitty Flanagan loves it !

#17 If you are unwilling to accept a loss, then you shouldn’t be playing the game.

#18 The Left will have to give up identity politics if it wants to be competitive again.

Seems very unlikely that this crop will do so.
