#FeelTheBern: I Think @HillaryClinton Is Done

After last night, I think Hillary Clinton is done. With Senator Bernie Sanders’ YUGE win in New Hampshire* and the very near win in Iowa*, he has the wind to his back. Sanders even has a plan to break Clinton’s Southern Firewall:

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) plans to pour resources into South Carolina to improve his standing with black voters in the state to punch a hole in Hillary Clinton’s electoral firewall. …

Sanders plans to boost his numbers by financing a major grassroots campaign introducing himself to minority voters in the state.

“We’re hiring half the state of South Carolina. Unemployment will go down,” quipped a campaign official. “We’re going to mount a very strong grassroots campaign and have young African-Americans knocking on doors in African-American communities.”

If the experiment proves successful in South Carolina, the campaign will next target Georgia, which has a relatively young and educated black electorate.

That was the plan BEFORE Iowa and New Hampshire. Now with the near Iowa win and 20% New Hampshire win under his belt, Bernie Sanders can go to his (big and/or small) donors and ask for more money to so that everyone can #FeelTheBern. I can’t see Hillary Clinton going to her (big and/or small) donors, hat in hand, asking to fend off the unstoppable #BernieBros train.

Personally, I don’t care which one the Democrats pick. There are huge drawbacks for either nominee.

With A Sanders Nomination: The center-left bolts right in the loving arms of the Republican party. Since Bernie Sanders is a huge Gun Rights guy, the gun control groups/supporters also stay home.

With A Clinton Nomination: The far left stays home when she shifts back to the center. We can even throw her extreme stances back at her when she does try to move to the center. I mean, the far left is backing Sanders to the hilt and they will feel (rightly) cheated of their candidate loses. Her coming non-indictment (and that is why she is sucking up to Obama right now) will also be an example of her “white privileged” to escape justice.

We could pick anyone from our side and beat both Democrats in the general election. I would be delighted if they both keep bashing each other until then. Barring an act of God, I don’t think the two Dem front-runners can win dog-catcher election right now.

I want to note that this is just my opinions based off of my observations. I could be wrong. Until I read something to the contrary, I will think this is our election to lose.

Well, see ya’ later!

#KosKids: The #FeelTheBern Edition

I like to start a feature where I take a look at the distorted views of the clinically insane. Or more commonly known to us on the right-side of the blogosphere, as the KosKids. They are the dedicated and brain-dead followers of Markos Moulitsas, and they have bought some prime real estate at the bottom of the rabbit hole. This feature will take a look at how far down they have gone. I am going to link them, but I beg you don’t click on them.

Today is all about how they #FeelTheBern right about now!

The one stake I take for my outside the system candidate. BERNIE SANDERS

Our first outing is… utter nonsense, honestly. I can’t make heads or tails of what it means really.

All I have been able to gleam, is that monkeys fly …for Bernie Sanders. I guess. I don’t know. This might mean something to Carissa Miller, but she doesn’t explain what it means.

Media’s anti-Sanders Bias Just Getting Too Obvious

This one makes sense, yet goes into a nothing burger of a story.

Oh wow, MSM is not fair? Stop the presses! Welcome to the club. Thanks for the update, lasvegasantiwar. I enjoyed it.

It’s Working Bernie Fans!

What’s working James Kroeger? Pouring good money after bad?

Basically, Kroeger wants you to pour more money into Bernie Sanders’ campaign. …Which will just cause Hillary Clinton to spend more money and take extreme left-wing positions. …Which will cause Hillary Clinton to have less money and make huge leaps in logic for a return to the center for the general election.

You know what, knock yourselves out! I give my full endorsement to this plan!

Hillary’s Conundrum

Here, kbman was able to rub two brain cells together long enough to put together a thoughtful article:

Hillary has a problem, a big problem. In fact, it is such a big problem that it is likely to have already cost her the nomination. Her problem, in a nutshell, is that the only way she can effectively neutralize Sanders’ policy proposals is to lie about them, and in so doing reinforcing the public’s perception of her as being dishonest.

She has already tried personal attacks and seen them backfire. She insinuated that Bernie was a sexist one week, and the following week insinuated that he was a racist. There was immediate backlash in the media over both incidents and Bernie saw his fundraising get a boost.

Seems plausible. Clinton has taken a huge hit in the polls, in only Iowa and New Hampshire. Nationally, and in the South, Clinton still has a commanding lead. Most southern states, if I am not mistaken, are winner takes all.

So keep fooling yourself into thinking Sen. Bernie Sanders even has a remote chance of winning. Keep throwing good money after bad. When Clinton comes asking for money and you feel cheated out of a general election Sanders campaign, I hope you think long and hard about how much you are going to give.

Well, see ya’ later!
