Re Bernie Sander’s failed campaign.
The NY Times has its take.
What is unaddressed in the NY Times piece is the incompetence of Bern’s campaign staff, from top to bottom.
I’ve commented before that his campaign staff is historically inept. Moreover, his surrogates are what one can only describe as regrettable. His revolution/movement has more of the markings of a cult than a political campaign. That probably explains why it “went wrong.”
A good night for the Democratic Party Establishment.
Predictably, impeachment is being downplayed on the revolutionary left.
I’ll write it again: Ethel Rosenberg was executed for less.
Cars honking in NYC as if the Giants won the Super Bowl.
For those keeping score: Trump is second Ivy Leaguer to be impeached.
I went to Salem recently and saw Trump strung up like a Burning Man statue and set afire. The locals danced in a circle around the flaming carnage.
When I visited Salem, I saw them burning Trumps. Little kids gathered the kindling from a nearby forest.
One time in Salem, I saw the locals drowning Trumps. It was gruesome but then Jesus appeared and the people were happy.
Gabbard’s Russian votes tonight are more damaging than anything HRC said about her.
Putin says: Spasibo Tulsi Michaelova!
I still think Tulsi is destined for a permanent seat on the Outnumbered couch.
The unhappiest person in the US today must be Michael Tracey.
Pelosi is a professional. And a boss.
She had to silence the Squad. And did so like a boss.
The outspoken pundit Cenk Uygur is finding that politics is actually hard.
The more the campaign is about NDAs and tax returns, the more politics is trivialized and the more ridiculous Democrats look.
Populism will be the reason why we can’t have a nice Democratic President.
Tis weird that a candidate like Buttigieg, who has no apparent path to winning the nomination, is under such vicious attack from surrogates of other candidates who also lack a clear path to victory (i.e., Sanders and Warren). I suppose their outrage needed a new outlet after Beto quit.
It’s trendy to call Buttigieg a racist these days. So I wonder what to call this:
I think that having so many Southern states go first kind of distorts reality,” Sanders said during a taping of “The Nightly Show” on Comedy Central earlier this month …
As the field is weeded perhaps Klobuchar will attract more media attention. She doesn’t cry about lack of attention like Castro and Booker.
Darling Nikki Haley is definitely running and has just locked down the vote of the Confederacy.
Clinton wouldn’t have cut food stamps. But Berniebros/brosettes said there was no difference between Clinton and Trump.
So much for their political wisdom!
Pelosi puts her boots on the necks of Kremlin-affiliated Republicans.
Pence misses his old names: Son of perdition. Little horn! Most unclean!
Homeland is basically the Trump Russia/Ukrainegate + Tulsi Gabbard.
On a serious note, Leninists historically tend to be anti-sex, anti-pleasure.
The Impeachniki are funny in their growing hysteria. Pelosi is smarter than all of them.
If NY State has its way, Trump’s money will only be safe in the Iranian national bank.
US and Iran are panto enemies. The “GREAT SATAN” versus the “TERRORIST STATE”. Each side benefits from the existence of the other. They deserve each other.
Trump means treason in Ukrainian.
“Neoliberal” captures all the Evil in the world: racism, sexism, fascism, heterosexism, classism, etc. It’s the Swiss army knife of woke critique.
In reality, it is really, really, super-late capitalism.
In a few billion years, when the sun expands during its own death throes, the Earth will be a burnt rock and, eventually, it will be consumed by the sun.
USWNT win the World Cup.
It was brilliant to schedule the Gold Cup Final on the same day as the World Cup in France. It illustrates the gap between the American men and women. If anything, it shows the American men should be paid less than the American women.
Neoliberalism and the establishment media hold back the US men’s team.
Cory Booker is more sorry that he’s polling at 1%-3%
Booker just realized he can no longer ride Harris’ coattails on the busing issue. He’s likely more disturbed by the fact that his poll numbers remain as low as they were before he chimed in.
I love Bern’s email blasts, full of desperate pleading and seething with resentment. I think he and his team know his revolution is quixotic, and that his nomination hopes lack any basis in political reality.
Tsipras was schooled by Merkel and played by Varoufakis. Now he’s out of power.
Pelosi has been chewing up and spitting out political newbies like AOC for years.
AOC is a Perónista. Go figure.
The only thing missing from Trump’s militaristic Fourth of July was Leni Riefenstahl.
Bern is all about symbolic violence against Democrats. Then he cries about Democrats being against him.
Sanders sees his chance to win the nomination slipping, so he’s going scorched earth again on the Democratic Party.
Bern believes the torch has been passed to him by Dr King. He’s desperate to be nominated.
Bern will argue that Warren is just another neoliberal centrist that his revolution is meant to smash.
When HRC launched her campaign in 2015 quoting FDR, she was labeled a neoliberal by Bernistans. So it is ironic that he’s claiming the New Deal for socialism.
Political liberalism is the core of democratic socialism: rule of law, equality, rights, etc. Dem Soc varies from political liberalism in that it brings liberal values to bear on labor conditions and relations. There’s no socialism without liberalism.
AOC and Cheney continue to double down on stupid (just like Trump).
I always wonder how McConnell shaves his dewlap.
So many people bring naive realist expectations to a fictional TV drama (HBO’s Chernobyl). Literary theory needs to be taught in high schools.
The white Ford Bronco chase was the best live television in history. Everyone was on pins and needles, waiting to see if OJ would blow his brains out in front of a mass audience.
Many male pundits believe they are smarter and better at politics than Pelosi.
Trump’s presidency is an ongoing series of felonies. He’ll be in exile in Russia long before a President Harris can get her hands on him.
Let Trump have his war with Iran. It will put to an end the 2016 claim from Bernistan that in contrast to Clinton, Trump was a peacemaker.
A few of the Democrats running for the nomination haven’t made it to the debate stage. There are no orange slices and trophies for finishing 21st.
I keep confusing Bullock with Bulworth.
Nothing against Cory Booker, but the last President associated with Stanford didn’t work out so well.
Anti-vaxxer Jessica Biesles has torpedoed her career.
Sarah Sanders is going straight to the hot place, where her soul will be cleansed by eternal hellfire. She delivered a masterclass in lying every time she appeared on camera.
This resignation brings joy to all rational people.
Larry Kudlow is openly senile.
It would be good to give up the idea that you’re smarter and better at politics than Pelosi.
Amanda Knox is in Italy. Excellent trolling, Ms Knox.
