It's mostly old shit but Bernie had some pretty crazy thoughts that he's put in writing over the years.

Some of the stuff in this thread is horse shit but some of it is pretty coocoo

I don’t know who James Carville is either.

But I’m not seeing any sexist things you’re describing. Anywhere.

James Carville the best political mind of our time. Man I don’t agree with him ideologically (I am A Republican) but man to study him is a masters course in political gold. The team of Carville, Begala, Mcauliffe Emmanuel were masters. Hell if there weren’t term limits Bill would still be president. In college circa 94 I interned for the house Republicans, they were the enemy but I ate up everything they wrote. True political athletes ,

In general I’m not sure why you referred to him as JC. To me that’s either Jesus Christ or JC Chasez hahahaha.

Really orgasms cause cancer in females? That’s not sexist at all. He actually said a lack of Orgasms cause cancer.

How about his comments on rape?

Sanders’ 1972 article: "A man goes home and masturbates his typical fantasy. A woman on her knees. A woman tied up. A woman abused. A woman enjoys intercourse with her man — as she fantasizes being raped by three men simultaneously … Do you know why the newspapers with the articles like ‘Girl, 12, raped by 14 men’ sell so well? To what in us are they appealing?’’


This guy is nuts, but more than likely he was tripping on LSD

So was that his pick up line

“Honey if you don’t have enough orgasms you’ll get cancer” don’t worry Bernie is here to help

That’s almost as bad as when Akin says rape can’t get you pregnant.

So, Michael Bloomberg’s campaign manager’s spin on the deepest possible digging that billions of dollars could do.

Bernie Sanders, citing a medical study at the time, said that fewer orgasms could cause cancer. THAT IS SEXIST TO YOU??! Jeez dude. How desperate is the opposition? You can feel free to argue 50 year old medical arguments are incorrect. You can even suggest they’re biased in a patriarchy and Bernie Sanders is or was involved in said patriarchy. To call this sexist is ridiculous.

As for the awkwardly worded letter that Bernie Sanders wrote in the prehistoric era before cancel culture was a thing, this article offers a significantly better take on it than you do: https://www.npr.org/sections/itsallp...say-explained?
Poor choice? Yeah. Sexist? Give me a break. You’re being a sucker for some specific quote that was gleefully taken out of context by his opposition.

Love to see self-described Republicans decide what is or what is not sexist.

While I think your general sentiment towards republicans is fair but I don’t know if it’s fair to automatically assume this fella is sexist just because he wears a republican jersey.

Some people mightn’t be champions of gender rights and human rights in general, doesn’t make them necessarily sexist.

I guess my point here is that I hate political parties, they’re nothing more than sports teams. Missouri football sucks but whether or not all of their fans suck is probably respective to the fan.

Mother Jones first reported it back in 16 not The Bloomberg aid, he just brought it up

So latest polls from South Carolina

Bottom 2 were taken over a time period that was half before the debate and endorsement, half after.
The top 2 were taken following both the debate and endorsement.

Can see Biden moving up, Steyer moving down and Bernie steady - I didn't include Warren but she dropped fro m 12 to 5 over that same time period. So looks like people are moving almost directly from Steyer and Warren to Biden. They lost a combined 12 points and Joe up about 12.
I'm guessing Steyer loses more on election day as people step in the booth...

2/26 - 2/27 Biden - 41 Sanders - 25 Steyer - 11
2/26 - 2/27 Biden - 44 Sanders - 23 Steyer - 11
2/23 - 2 /27 Biden - 34 Sanders - 25 Steyer - 13
2/23 - 2/26 Biden - 28 Sanders - 24 Steyer - 16

They were all masterful, no doubt. All-Star pols.

Mayor Emmanuel still in the game, trying to stay relevant.

And then there's ABC's Stephanopoulos. He plays it straight.

First exit polls out

51% of voters want to return to Obama style leadership

47% said that Clyburn endorsement was important part of their decision.

72% 45 and older

Eugene Robinson saying that spending the day at a University, they weren't seeing the same generational divide with Biden and Bernie here.

Could be quite a night for Biden.

Vice President Biden has been running for president since the mid 80's.

South Carolina tonight could be his first and only primary win

Hilarious. After tonight he'll be second in delegate count,
Also favored to win half the Super Tuesday states. Amy, Pete, Steyer and Warren are favored to win in none.

This post is just sad.

Amy and Pete deserved better. But maybe they didn't earn it.

We'll all be watching the Democrat party on Tuesday night.
