    TFW when you are so far left, even Bernie "I am a socialist" Sanders is unacceptable.
    I am amused by that comment.

    If a fool commits himself and is found guilty of it. Accusation isn't proof.

    We are not advocating letting him get away with waging war against the US. You are advocating that accusation is proof of guilt.
    He's an extremist Muzzie, what other proof is needed?

    VP for Sanders? How about, Tada!...., Adam Schiff. Or failing that, Adam Schiff as Attorney General, replacing the miserable and wretched William Barr.
    Why not go the whole Venezuela hog and pick AOC as VP?

    Let's not lose sight of the fact that primaries are very different from general elections. Speculation over electability now just focuses on personalities, but the general election includes vice presidents. Popularity among Democrats is not the same as poularity among American voters. Sanders could go a long way in improving his electability in the general by balancing his ticket wisely. Clinton did very little to help herself on that score, so I wonder whether Sanders is going to look outside his circle of admirers to make a pragmatic choice.

    In any case, we just have three small states on which to base all the predictions that Sander's modest bandwagon won't lose a wheel on Super Tuesday. And two of those states were not even primaries. It's still too early to coronate him.

    Nevada caucuses: Latinos were Bernie Sanders’s key to victory - Vox - "Sanders has been courting Latinos for months. It helped him sweep the vote in Nevada."
    Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders seems to have swept Latino voters in the Saturday’s Nevada caucuses, an affirmation of his months-long investments in outreach that could presage his success in primaries still to come in heavily Latino states.

    Sanders is counting on Latino voters, the largest nonwhite contingent of voters in 2020, to carry him to the Democratic nomination. In Nevada, where Latinos make up about 19 percent of eligible voters, they helped hand him a big victory.

    ...
    Sanders is trying to appeal to Latino voters with a progressive policy platform that speaks to their core interests: health care, jobs, and, for some, immigration. Starting last summer, he has invested heavily in spreading his message, in both Spanish and English, to Latino communities. And he’s hired Latino staff from the grassroots advocacy community and integrated them into every facet of his campaign.
    AOC has campaigned for Tío Bernie as she sometimes calls him, Uncle Bernie in Spanish, and she has even spoken Spanish in some of her campaigning. What BS did seems like what AOC did over 2017-18, seek out new voters rather than focus on people who might otherwise have gone for other candidates.

    With recent current events in my life, I read a post like this and Rush's song "Wish Them Well" springs to mind.

    They're like two peas in a pod. One is just plain stupid, the other is or near senility.
