Establishment Democrats are scared to death of a Bernie Sanders win over Hillary for many of the same reasons the Republican establishment is scared to death of a Ted Cruz primary win: People will lose party jobs and access.

In Democratic circles, people like Claire McCaskill are worrying that Bernie will be a general election disaster because Republicans will run ads with a hammer and sickle on them.

So how will the self-identified Democratic Socialist convince America to vote for him?

Simon & Garfunkel.

I agree with this assessment of a new ad released by Sanders:

Watching that ad, Hillary Clinton should be worried, very worried.

Should we?

UPDATE – Aleister has prepared an alternative version of the ad:
