It Turns Out Sanders Did Not Actually Withdraw from the Race

He’s not campaign as much, maybe. And he knows he can’t win. But he is still very much in this, as Kimberly Strassel notes in the Wall Street Journal: Sanders said he nonetheless would . . . “stay on the ballot in all remaining states and continue to gather delegates,” so as to exert “significant influence” over the party. He also declined to promise he’ll

Video || Bernie Decides to Stay in the Race

You knew that was coming. The good news is, they’ll have a debate Sunday night. I want to see how Biden does, and whether he has the mental endurance to go one-on-one with someone. It’s important to know that someone who could be president can do this. I like the slo-mo at the beginning of this. Makes him look frightening. You know, in other ways

Biden Way Ahead of Sanders in Michigan Primary Polls

The primary is Tuesday, and it’s almost a must-win for Bernie Sanders, but he is trailing Joe Biden badly in two recent polls. Worth remembering, though, that polls showed Sanders well behind Hillary Clinton there right before the 2016 primary, and he pulled out a win anyway on the strength of a surge in younger voters. According to the Washington Examiner: Post-Super Tuesday polling has

Bloomberg is Out

In a statement, he did not say specifically that his money is still in, as promised, just that he’d keep fighting to defeat President Trump. He also endorsed Joe Biden. According to the Washington Examiner: Michael Bloomberg dropped out of the Democratic presidential race and endorsed Joe Biden, marking the end of a high-spending, self-funded campaign that rejected conventional campaign tactics.  His announcement comes as

Biden Says He is Running for the Senate

Okay. I mean, do we know for sure he’s not running for the Senate too? Everything is fine . . . “My name’s Joe Biden, I’m a Democratic candidate for the United States Senate.” It’s okay, he’s pretty close to the retirement porch anyway.

Sanders Praises “Massive” Castro Literacy Program and Asks: “Is That a bad Thing”?

Appearing on CBS’ 60 Minutes Sunday night, Sen. Bernie Sanders had some kind words to say about Fidel Castro. For example, the tyrant taught everyone to read. Not a stretch to say it takes a certain mindset to say nice things about Castro. And BTW, communist regimes are always great with literacy programs. They teach you to read . . . and then they give

Biden Claim He Was Arrested in South Africa is Almost Certainly False

Another Joe Biden presidential campaign trail fantasy, apparently. According to the New York Times: In at least three campaign appearances over the past two weeks, Joseph R. Biden Jr. has told a similar story as he tries to revive his campaign in states with more diverse voters. On a trip to South Africa years ago, he has said, he was arrested as he sought to visit Nelson

Bloomberg Decides To Release Female Former Employees from NDAs

I guess their internal polling with Democratic women is looking pretty bad. Elizabeth Warren seared him pretty badly during the debate. BTW, notice the above video was cut by Bloomberg News. According to a statement from the Bloomberg campaign: I’ve had the company go back over its record and they’ve identified 3 NDAs that we signed over the past 30-plus years with women to address

Video || Democratic Candidates Pandering to Latinos

Well, it’s Nevada caucuses time, and the demographics are a little different then, uh, New Hampshire. So it’s a good moment to review Democratic presidential candidate pandering to Latinos by speaking Spanish and feeling lots of immigrant pain. Do Hispanics want to be addressed this way? Is it actually respectful? Somehow, I don’t think my grandparents wanted Franklin Roosevelt to try to speak to them
