This Sanders go nothing to do with ‘chicken’

Posted: 04/30/2015 in Screwed

You know that warm, mushy feeling you get when your gramma hugs you?  I got that feeling this week when I read that Senator Bernie Sanders had decided to run for President in 2016.  Of course, some people get that feeling when they soil themselves in terror, so you know the Clintons will probably have another shot at that good feeling at some point before election day…right about the point they remember the last time Missy Hillary thought herself the inevitable candidate and some super liberal stepped up to the plate.

While I have nothing against Hillary Clinton (well, not much, anyway), the one thing I felt was missing from this upcoming jamboree was someone to force her more to the left.  Pretty much everyone knows about her connection to the far right Christian fanatics (the Family), and quite a few of us aren’t happy with the fact that she’s more hawkish than we’d like her to be.  However, she is the lessor of two evils, so we’ll hold our nose and pull the lever yet again.  But I loves me some Bernie Sanders.  He also is more hawkish than I’d like, but Hillary makes him look like a hippy.

I have no illusions that Bernie could ever win the Democratic nomination.  Just ain’t gonna happen.  Hillary already has all the big blue money sewed up, and in politics, that’s what counts.  And even if a miracle occurred (say, HC had a stoke, god forbid), Bernie couldn’t beat any Republican.  After all, who ever comes out on top of the GOP scramble (Jeb), they’ve got so much money available that any one of them (Jeb) is going to beat that avowed socialist.  And no third-party candidate is going to ever win — at least not in our lifetimes.  The “machine” won’t allow it.

But it does my ole heart good to see somebody try.  It really does.


Be seeing you.

  1. Hate to say, I dont know if she will win the election, and I dont know if moving to the left will make it more likely.
