Grumpy Old White Men: Drunkblogging the Democratic Diversity Debate
Thanks for joining in the fun tonight.
I think Tyler O'Neil is going to do the wrap, so look for that shortly on the PJMedia home page.
I'm going to pour myself a brandy, grab my iPad, get into bed, and watch something with higher-stakes combat and a little more intellectual heft than what we just saw.
Tonight's big question was: Does Bernie have what it takes to go for broke when almost all is lost?
The answer, still, is: No.
Which tells me that Sanders doesn't believe a word of his radical manifesto, because if he did, he'd be slitting throats to get to a place where he could do what he claims must be done.
So barring a total mental break, Biden it is.
I loved this exchange from the comments.
Jeebus, Tapper. His hard-hitting closing question is: "Tell people something nice about coping during this coronavirus time of need."
Well, not exactly, but close enough.
"I'm not diverse, but the person I pick for that placeholder position at the bottom of my ticket will be."
Old bolshies never change, they just update their lies.
Last plug for tonight, I promise!

POLL: Which is sillier, Biden's plugs or Bernie's combover?
When you've lost PolitiFact...
I respect Guy, but disagree with him here. Biden has moved so far left, that functionally there's zero difference between him and Sanders and Kruschev.
