Sheesh, we're in a mess.

Bloomberg's done. You just don't recover from a weak opening round like that. He not only got clobbered, he got clowned on. Every time he tried to fight back he just looked funnier. You can write off Mike.

Meanwhile, our caucus-fueled "front runner" (your favorite... and Trump's and Russia's!) Mr. Bernie McGovern got on 60 Minutes last night and loaded his pants. When asked for details of how he'd pay for all this nifty gimme-gimme shit he's proposing, he babbled a bunch of stuff (allow me to translate it for you: "I DON'T KNOW"). He did the lefty equivalent of "Mexico will pay for it." Then just to stomp a little harder while he had the clown-shoes on, he tried to wishy-wash fucking Fidel Castro into being some not-so-bad fella because, hey, at least he had a book club. Fuuuuuck. Bernie Sanders is a turd on a birthday cake, but his cult is going to keep pushing for him because they believe that if they just keep him in everybody's face long enough, everybody else is gonna fall in love with him and ignore his monumental flaws as much as they do. That's the way it is when you really really like something and think everybody else is missing out.

By the way, Motorhead makes me happier than just about anything else in this world, so I should probably just keep posting their songs until you, too, become enlightened. Right? Right!



Nifty how that works, ain't it? Effective?

Anyway, we're left with some other folks, and we're just brilliantly leaving 'em in an environment with no oxygen. We've got Joe Biden, who's a really good guy even if he is gaffe-prone. He's genuine and he'd make a great president... but, everybody's gotta hate him to prove their love for Berrrrnie. They're working overtime to make him look "weak" and a "tool of the establishment" and nah-neh-nyaaaah. Just killing him off.

We've got Warren... who's as progressive as Bernie and a hell of a lot more electable, who's proven to be the one who could probably do the best job of just rag-dolling Trump. She ripped the guts out of Bloomberg's machine in about five minutes, and Trump's more vulnerable. I'm thinking she could probably do this to him so bad people would quit fretting over her supposed "socialism" --



But, people are gonna shove her aside, because Berrrrnie. Did you know he ran track in high school? And snitched sandwiches out of his friends' parents fridges just like a real hippie? He's dreeeeamy.

Then there's Klobachar and Buttigeig, both of whom are good solid people who'd likely make really good candidates, but nobody's really looking at them much because they're concentrating on the gigantic stillbirth who's our current frontrunner. They're very good candidates. They'll probably be gone after Super Tuesday.

And once we're locked in, oh ho, then new stuff like what was on 60 Minutes is gonna get released every week up until November. Trump will declare fascism has a mandate, and he'll really get busy on dictatorship... and his dumb fucking followers will trot right along behind him like a line of baby ducks 'cuz they think that's what Republican-Jesus wants. And Bernie's cult will sit there dazed in a puddle of their own piddle, wonder how such a terrible thing could possibly have happened, and how come nobody warned 'em?

There's still a chance to stop it, but will Democrats take it? Nah. Free college! We could be Sweden!

Here's a link to CNN's story about "Bernie Sanders' disastrous answer on 60 Minutes" that z is referring to.  It was cringe-worthy watching Sunday night, I can tell you:

https://www.cnn.com/2020/02/24/politics/bernie-sanders-donald-trump-2020/index.html

I'm still not ready to count out Bloomberg, though.  He has two more chances this week, in my book:  Tonight on CNN's Town Hall, and tomorrow night in the S. Carolina debate.

Nope, the more I think about it, definitely not writing him off. All I have to do is think of the MYRIAD things that Trump did and said wrong, and he recovered from ALL of them.

Here's a small sliver of hope for some of us to hold onto - heard it on the radio Monday afternoon and confirmed it here:

https://projects.fivethirtyeight.com/polls/florida/

Click on "More" (+)  for each poll to see the relative standing of the candidates in Florida.  I was encouraged to note Bloomberg's lead in Florida, even if only by a small margin, with Sanders in third place.

All is not yet lost, z.

I should also advise that Bloomberg decided to put off his scheduled CNN town hall appearance Monday night in favor of preparing for Tuesday's debate.  He'll do the town hall Wednesday night instead.

Speaking of the CNN town hall Monday night, how did Bernie do, if anyone saw it? He was first up. I just couldn't watch.

I'm not sure Bloomberg really wants to be president.

https://www.yahoo.com/news/audio-bloomberg-slammed-warren-scary-023635538.html

I can forgive him saying Warren is "scary" because that's an opponent... and damn right he's scared of her after the way she powerbombed his ass in public. But he just said that Romney would have been a better president than Obama.

This, after having spoken at a Republican National Convention and trying to promote Dumbya Bush, his "I'm a Democrat" creds are starting to look as shaky as Bernie's...

I have to give Bloomberg credit for one accomplishment...humiliating Trump.

I'm hoping Bloomberg will drop out but keep bankrolling a lot of campaigns to pick at Trump. Mike could do a lot of good that way.

Trump would be easy to strip down like an old car, if somebody'd just wake up and do it. The guy's all "tells." He brags all the time because inside he knows he's not competent at anything, and he lives in terror of anyone finding that out. He over-defends his ego because it's so fragile and precious to him. A lot of that is damage from his insane daddy, and a lot of it is just personal weakness. Donald Trump has never really excelled at anything but throwing his dad's money around and getting attention for being obnoxious. He's a poor person's idea of a rich person and a moron's idea of a smart person... and he's not really pulling it off all that well. He's all veneer over rotten wood. Start picking at it and it'll peel right off. Anybody who really knows where the loose spots are and starts tugging at them can make Donald come apart right in public. It'll be an ugly thing to watch, but at this point it's becoming necessary. Bloomberg could fund that...

???? So whom will you vote for in the presidential primary, then?

I still don't really know for sure. I know it'll be either Biden, Buttigeig, Klobuchar, or Warren, but it varies from time to time. I think any of them are potentially electable, although they've all got different strengths, different weaknesses. I think Warren would be acceptable to the Bernie people (a lot of whom are notoriously idiotic and value their "purity" over defeating Trump) so she might actually get them to vote, while the others wouldn't. And she might be acceptable to crossover people who fear Bernie's socialism, because even though she has a lot of the same ideas they're not backed by the same crazy "revolution" hippie-horseshit.

Then Buttigeig seems to appeal to most people who listen to him (except the Berniebots, who hate him)... but, getting them to listen, that's the trick.

Biden's old reliable and a really good guy, but, jeez, his mind's gotten frighteningly slippery in a few spots. He's always been gaffey, but it's redlining a bit. I think if people can get around that and flow him at least a tenth as much slack as they flow Trump, he'd stand a very good chance... but, I just worry he'll nice-guy himself out of the running.

And Klobuchar's personality's not really winning, but she's smart and capable. I just don't know if she could get sufficient attention. If she did, she'd be a lot more formidable than she is now.

I think any of those four would have a pretty good shot. Bernie's our only guaranteed-to-fail candidate... but people are missing that because they mistake being strong in the primary for being strong in the general. Yeah, a lot of the base likes him... and even the part of the base that doesn't (like me) will still vote for him in the general just to be voting against Trump. But wishy-washy moderates? He'll scare them off in droves. I don't think they'll necessarily vote for Trump instead, but Democrats only win when there's massive turnout. Bernie would dampen that down like crazy... and also depress voting for down-ticket. People have no clue what a disaster they're courting with that old jackass. I wouldn't mind them learning the hard way, but since it'd mean I'd have to deal with four more years of Trump and likely the ruination of democracy itself (conservatives ain't gonna get in the way of a dictator -- they're unprincipled and spineless "good Germans") it's too big a price.

Come to think of it, where is Iron Mike lately? I mean the ex Mayor of NYC and not the boxer who is booked to oppose a shark, in a few weeks. I miss Bloomberg's daily bashing of IPOTUS  Trump. Beating IPOTUS at the voting booth on election day may not be enough. He needs to be crushed so that future generations will be afraid to speak his name out loud and there will be no doubt that real Americans want to remove the curse of Trump on our house. Where are you Mike Bloomberg?

Yeah, I thought Bloomberg was supposed to throw all the might of his fortune to ad blitzes crushing Trump... but, if he's doing it at all then he's keeping it on the DL, 'cuz I've seen nothing from him. He pulled a big fade.

His purpose was to bleed votes off of Bernie. The same reason Warren stayed in until after Super Tuesday. The donations were falling and she knew she'd even lose her home state. You were fed Biden.
