It’s getting harder and harder to determine real tweets from Bernie Sanders and tweets from parody accounts mocking Bernie Sanders. Here’s the latest from the real one:

Laws — how do they work?

And maybe we should hold politicians to the same standards as Sanders wants to with evil CEOs:

    Bernie reminds me of the old Aardvark cartoon.

    Hello there. Allow me to introduce myself. I’m an aardvark. I eat ants for a living. I’m a functional creation. Check the profile. That’s a profile? And the mouth. Ever see a mouth like this? Let me show you how it works. Say there’s an ant beyond that hill. I give a little inhale, like this……..

      I mentioned that on another site, and received a diction lesson from some a-hole. Couldn’t I tell a Brooklyn accent from a Queens accent? Or some such nonsense. I told him, no, I was born in Philly.

      • overboosted ✓ᴰᴱᴾᴸᴼᴿᴬᴮᴸᴱ

        Sanders’ voice reminds me of comedian Jackie Mason, who I think the Aardvark cartoon was patterned after. Don’t know whether it is a Brooklyn or Queens accent but it is definitely a “NYC Jewish” accent for sure.

        What I don’t get is how will the DNC flip them to vote for Hillary after the primary. I mean are we looking at a Clinton/Sanders ticket?

        One ran foggy bottom and the other is just foggy.

        • Eric D. Mertz #NeverTrump

          No way would that work. The Sanders supporters hate and distrust Hillary far too much for that. Hell, the anger Bernie gets from them for going easy on her in the debates is rather shocking. They want him to go for the throat.

          • http://youhavetobethistalltogoonthisride.blogspot.com/ keyboard jockey

            He’s getting a lot of the occupy crowd no doubt.

          • Eric D. Mertz #NeverTrump

            No question. I wouldn’t be surprised if they and the college econ illiterates decide to write his name in on the ballot.

          • http://youhavetobethistalltogoonthisride.blogspot.com/ keyboard jockey

            Who could they put on the ticket with Hillary to lure them in? Come the general she needs to move to the middle. I don’t see all the Bernie fans giving up the fantasy and becoming pragmatic.

          • Eric D. Mertz #NeverTrump

            I doubt they will. Bernie would have to agree to it, and he’s already hinting at a third-party or independent run if DWS manipulates the nomination process to give Hills her coronation. And, given how DWS is manipulating the debate process to hide them from the voters, I fully expect her to do exactly that.

            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QFq_dIv6VhU

            If that happens, expect a full blown rebellion on the part of the party base which would make the GOP rebellion against their backstabbing leaders look small in comparison.

          • http://youhavetobethistalltogoonthisride.blogspot.com/ keyboard jockey

            We got a taste of it in 2008 with the PUMA revolt.

          • Eric D. Mertz #NeverTrump

            But only a taste. Hillary doesn’t have all that many loyalists, and most of the people who claim they would vote for her in the primary at the start of the campaign have gotten enough exposure to remind them why they hate her so much. It’s the same thing which killed her campaign in 2008.

            If she really wanted the job, she’d retire to Chappaqua and let others campaign for her. But she is as much a narcissist as Obama, so that’s not going to happen.

          • http://youhavetobethistalltogoonthisride.blogspot.com/ keyboard jockey

            I think she just does what her handlers tell her and that’s after they poll tested it. Snort.

          • Eric D. Mertz #NeverTrump

            Oh, no doubt. It’s why the negative reaction from the public to her is so delicious. Not even her poll testers and focus group gurus can over come how toxic her personality is.

          • http://youhavetobethistalltogoonthisride.blogspot.com/ keyboard jockey

            It’s mostly the voice she’s at a disadvantage she doesn’t have the male baritone. There is nothing soothing about her voice. It doesn’t help that when she speaks it’s mostly in lawyer speak. If she wants to improve on her honesty ratio she needs to stop couching every word before she utters it. But who knows maybe it’s so in grained now she can’t turn it off and on and just speak like a normal person.

          • Eric D. Mertz #NeverTrump

            If her boss during the Whitewater investigation is any indication, she’s actually gotten wort. Back then, she was just a straight up liar.

          • Petrucio14

            If she does get the nomination, how is she going to hide for the General? Tough road to hoe.

          • Eric D. Mertz #NeverTrump

            She couldn’t. The plan I suggested would only work for the primary. I am rather prone to rant and rave about how our system has become a popularity contest, but it’s going to kill Hillary’s chances of becoming POTUS simply because she HAS to be out in front of the public where the fact she is faker than Kim Kardashian’s rear is undeniable.

            Whoever they add for the base isn’t going to attract the Independents and they need the Independents in the general. Letting Bernie Sanders run the party to the far left has really painted them into a corner for the general.

            I’d seem a bit of rumbling regarding dissatisfaction towards him in that regard on twitter, but I must be missing the hardcore ones. Oh, this is beautiful…

            “They want him to go for the throat.” Only because they see him losing to her. Trust me, if/when hils wins the nomination, the sheeple will trample their children to jump on the bus. They are all, after all, part of the 47%.

          • Eric D. Mertz #NeverTrump

            I don’t know. The Dems have always been even more of a collection of warring tribes than the GOP was, and now they are going for the throat more than ever.

            Based on what I am seeing on Twitter – though I’m apparently missing some stuff – we should be entering the Seventh Party System. If so, expect the oldest political party in American history to go down in flames.

          • Newportcarl

            Absolutely true… That’s why I keep telling the Bernzoids that they WILL vote for Hillary in the end. It drives them up the frickin’ wall!

        • Newportcarl

          Really good question Jock. The ex-district attorney here is avid for Bernie. But hates Hillary. If they ran as a ticket I fear they would steamroller the repubs. Look up Bernie + sheepdog for an excellent explanation

          • http://youhavetobethistalltogoonthisride.blogspot.com/ keyboard jockey

            I think they will stick to the identity politics play book. They never give up on schtick till it stops working. Like when they started calling Mark Udall Mark Uterus because he wouldn’t stop running on the phony war on women crap. The electorate is always out in front of the trends, but some politicians are really lousy at reading the mood of the public. They lag behind.

    Laws? Haven’t you heard, you don’t need to give a crap about our country’s laws to be President now. The Constitution is a thing of the past (literally and figuratively). Now we have dictators. Either like it or be destroyed.

          I know exactly who you mean. Hopefully the fact Cruz is scheduled to beat him – and is doing so with a frugal and clever ground game which isn’t emptying his war chest the way others who won Iowa and crashed and burned afterwards – will drive that proggy SOB off the deep end…

    Democrats want to deny there is any foundation for morality but want us to all be bound by their defective interpretation of what they believe to be fair.

    • AMSilver

      Liberals want to keep government from legislating morality, but want the government to force us all to do good (give charity to the poor, treat protected classes of people the way they want to be treated, etc). I think one main difference between the two is that religions have written and unchanging rules of morality, which if codified into law would effectively limit the reach of government, whereas liberals’ morality is whatever their cause du jour is, and therefore cannot possibly ever be limited – meaning government can effectively dictate every aspect of our lives.

      • Harold Patterson

        Nailed it!!!

      • Petrucio14

        Democrat morality (I know, oxymoron) is built on one bible passage which they twist to mean the opposite of what it does: “Judge not lest you be judged”

        They pretend it means that nobody should tell them that they are doing evil, that their licentiousness is OK. We ARE called to warn others to avoid evil.

        What it really means is that nobody should decide for themselves that someone else is going to hell, no matter how clear the path may be or how obviously they appear to have greased the skids.

    I’d assume bundling and selling a bunch of toxic mortgages as though they were something they were not constitutes fraud. If the executives of the banks secretly planned to do this, which is reasonable, you can throw in criminal conspiracy. As far as I’m aware, those are crimes. And it’s not like we’re taking a one time criminal act, but one perpetuated against thousands, perhaps millions, of victims.
