It won’t work, and it may freeze electable Dems out.
There’s a civil war going on in the Democratic party not very different from what’s going in the Republican party. That’s a good thing on both sides, compared to the mindless obedience to party line that some would prefer. But it looks bad because it reveals all sort of bad things. Truth is unaesthetic.
Screw the establishment candidates. Let’s have some political Darwinism, and then some fresh blood.
No, Bernie isn’t quite fresh blood. He’s just an old Bolshevik who never rose to the top back in the day. O’Malley’s a bungler, but he’s at least a new and fresh variety of incompetence.
[quote]Following a firebrand back-and-forth from Sen. Bernie Sanders and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton about drug policy and criminal justice reform, former Baltimore mayor Martin O’Malley, known for his sweeping police reforms in the drug-plagued city, attempts to break in to the conversation.
“Lester, just ten seconds,” pled the mayor who was the inspiration for a character on The Wire, “just ten seconds.”
Trump has figured out how to beat the thought police. That’s one good thing he’s accomplished.
Meanwhile this development couldn’t have helped the Bernie-Leninism cause among the undecided in the U.S.:
[quote]French President Declares Economic Emergency
PARIS — French President Francois Hollande pledged Monday to redefine France’s business model and declared what he called “a state of economic and social emergency,” unveiling a 2-billion-euro ($2.2 billion) plan to revive hiring and catch up with a fast-moving world economy.
The measures he proposed, however, are relatively modest, and he said they would not “put into question” the 35-hour workweek. With his country under a state of emergency since extremist attacks in November, Hollande did not seek to assume any new emergency powers over the economy.
In an annual speech to business leaders, Hollande laid out plans for training half a million jobless workers, greater use of apprenticeships, and aid for companies that hire young workers.
Hollande’s Socialist government has struggled to boost long-stagnant French growth or reduce chronic unemployment, which has been around 10 percent for years. His chances of winning a potential second term may hinge on whether jobs pick up before next year’s presidential vote.[/quote]
It would be epic if Bernie is given the mandate to redefine America’s business model along the lines of France’s business model at the same time France is busy redefining its business model along the lines of American’s pre-Bernie business model. I’m not sure the space-time continuum could withstand the stress.
He’s gonna get disappeared and airbrushed out if he doesn’t show enough loyalty.
Meanwhile. there’s an immigration/terror thingie going on that they’re not saying much about beyond trying to shift the blame away from their party. But don’t worry. She’s tough. Whatever that means anymore.
All politicians are bought and paid for and are loyal to those who have sponsored them and those they can profit from. Politics and the two party system is a charade and elections are a circus designed to distract and entertain. So how about those Carolina Panthers?
