Marcotte: Support Clinton, you creeps–because she’s a woman!
Lovin’ all that Democratic “unity” in Philly this week!
Here’s Amanda Marcotte (thanks, Twitchy!), the Salon writer and one-woman Hillary booster machine, expressing shock, shock via Twitter that supporters of Bernie Sanders aren’t too happy about learning via Wikileaks that the Democratic National Committee has been essentially functioning as Hillary’s Praetorian Guard:

As might be expected, female Sanders supporters haven’t been happy about the scolding from Marcotte for not joining Queen Hillary’s coronation after she “Bern’d” them royally. Some of their tweets:
