I get the same emotional ALERT reaction to Bernie that I get with Trump. I haven't put my finger on it yet. Perhaps it's the off the scales narcissism of both. Perhaps it's Bernie's dissing the Dems while using their resources. I do not trust him.

Of course they would accept Bernie Sanders. In a New York fucking minute. Bernie would want to be top of the ticket though, he plays second fiddle to nobody.

Look at how the Repubs began calling Lamb "basically Republican", and began circulating both true and false claims about his positions on key issues. You don't think they'd do the same for Bernie? And that their any-Republican-over-anyone-else base would choose to believe it and vote for him? Plus a sizeable contingent of the so-called independents?Sterngard Friegen wrote: ↑Thu Mar 22, 2018 4:08 pmBernie is for single payer, DACA, lower defense budgets, no wall, generous welfare, higher social security payments, etc., etc. He's pretty much a standard IWW socialist. There is no way he will be embraced nby the Republican Party. He's their punching bag, not their mascot.
One thing, though. He still refuses to release his tax returns. That's not going to be enough.
