“This is weird,” I said to myself as the eleventh 2020 Democrat presidential primary debate commenced in the isolated (quarantined?) CNN studio in Washington, DC on Sunday night. Originally conceived by the DNC as a means to narrow down the remnants of the party field ahead of the next round of consequential primaries, events and circumstances instead turned the evening into an even slower-moving snooze-fest between two long-past-prime rivals going through the motions one final time before people stop tuning in and impatiently wait for the summer political fireworks to commence.Read More

Democratic 2020 candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders has hired Phillip Agnew as a campaign adviser, promoting an individual who supports the abolishment of prisons and has a history of making inflammatory comments.
The Sanders campaign announced on Saturday that Agnew — who was already serving as a top campaign surrogate — has been hired on as a senior adviser.

The candidates who most excited the punditocracy have quit the race.

Biden, in three runs for the presidency, had never won a state primary nominating election until Saturday. But pre-election surveys show that Sanders, a self-declared democratic socialist, is handily leading in California, where the most delegates to the party’s mid-summer national presidential nominating convention are at stake in the next round of voting. The polling shows Biden ahead in seven of the states with Tuesday contests, Sanders in six and Sen. Amy Klobuchar in the lead in her home state of Minnesota.Read More

Bernie Sanders—a supporter of Cuba’s and Venezuela’s Communist regimes, whose honeymoon idyll was the Soviet Union, passionate and earnest about his beliefs—now appears likeliest to be the Democratic Party’s nominee for president. The number and quality of the young surrogates with whom he has surrounded himself show his seriousness about breaking a lot of America’s eggs to whip up his favorite socio-communist omelet. Were Sanders to be elected, his people—and no others—would take charge of the U.S. government’s every last bit, and place it behind their vision to reshape America and Americans.Read More
