Time for a new party, the Cellar Party, we'll straighten those fuckers out.

We'll be known as the type-righter party.
Our opponents will have a monkey on their backs.
We'll send political correctness to Coventry
Our headquarters will be called the User CP!

insofar as I've been bothered to pay attention to the Dems, this is my thinkin'

Smokin' Joe was supposed to be the guy, but he's diminished, so: no, Joe.

Bernie should be the guy but the Old Guard ain't ready for a full-blown embrace of communism, er, socialism, so: no, Bernie

Petey was supposed to fall away like the rest but, right now, he looks to be the only thing the Dems got, so: go, Petey!

Am I wrong?

I'm okay with Warren, Sanders, or Buttigieg, in that order. Joe can go home.

This guy has listed all the times the media has left Andrew Yang off their coverage and graphics.

Um wow It's kind of a (scroll scroll scroll) very long list

Hot take Neutral Evil Bloomburg: A victory by the left wing oligarch will create at least as big a back-lash as Trumpy. I believe he can be as shitty as Trump during an election cycle which likely suppresses independent turn-out.

Left wing? He's running because he doesn't want Bernie or Warren to raise his taxes, and didn't think Biden was doing well enough against them.

Hmm.

I'm going to need to start thinking about these guys. Super Tuesday is in about two weeks.

Biden tanking in Iowa really messed things up for the DNC.. no wonder they tried to sit on those results. After the first two primaries, polling shows Bernie went up by double digits at the same time Biden dropped by that amount--they literally swapped places. Total nightmare scenario for the establishment.

And now the mass foot-shooting begins. The guy who is their front runner, who has massive popularity and unlimited fundraising, is actually winning, but they can't stop trying to smear him. "He will be horrible and ruin America and he's a Communist and there will be public executions and brownshirts!" they cry, in a total palms-sweating panic.

About the guy who is winning.

Here's the problem, though. He is projected to win EVERY STATE except two on Super Tuesday. Including Texas and California. He WILL be the candidate. They might not "like it" but short of having him ASSASSINATED, he WILL be the candidate.

So, how long do they go on, rat-ƒucking their own guy??

Saying, "He'll lose, like McGovern" is saying that DEMOCRATS will lose.

I would ask the same thing of the Bernie or Bust crowd from 2016.
