Another one bites the dust... Cadillac Deval is out! And good riddance!

Caddy Deval was never in it. All these progressives that win in MA think that they are first-rate at the national level. Hasn't happened since JFK who wouldn't even be a moderate Dem today, never mind a progressive!

Don't forget Bloomberg. He is working the Super Tuesday states WEEKS before the rest of the field even has plans to be there. ST has 1134 delegates up for grabs. And don't forget the 716 Super Delegates that the party elite will "direct" where their votes should go. And unlike the rest of the field Mini Mike doesn't have to worry about raising cash by doing well in the early states.
The good news is that if bloomberg grabs it, ALL of the biden supporters will get their panties in a bunch and not bother to vote in november. Probably the same for warren lovers too

bloomies rich nyc spiel is going to go over like a wet fart in church in the mid west

Joe reminds me of Dean, but with better fitting shirts and less of a clue. (Howard Dean was the guy that pieced the Democrat party back together and kicked our asses.)


Again - who told him that shirt fit??? I get the era and all that, but you could fit a second not-so-skinny Howard Dean into the shirt.

Prediction - Amy Klobuchar is going to be inline for some major campaign contributions.

Reports are she got 2.5 million after last night's showing.

They are all terrible candidates. Biden is senile. Warren and Bloomberg are phony and thoroughly unlikable even despised by many. Buttigieg is an empty suit incapable of anything beyond meaningless double talk. The Democrat establishment knows they need an alternate to Bernie the commie and if Klobuchar, a woman, fits that bill they will certainly ignore claims from staffers of “She was mean to me”. After all up till now they have shamelessly been pushing Biden a guy blatantly knee deep in Ukrainian corruption.

When the Republicrats at Fox News start praising Klobuchar as “on the rise” and “really fighting for it” you know the establishment is eyeing her as a possible alternative to the commie.

Me I hope it is Bernie just for the epic LOLs of President Trump causing the commie bastard to have a coronary on the debate stage.

Methinks it's becoming increasingly obvious to everyone that the whole Donk primary/caucus thing is an absolute sham. Their politburo ("superdelegates") chooses the candidate.
Still wondering how the DNC is going to torpedo Bernie again without it being too obvious like last time. Doesn't look like they are going to prop Biden up much longer, is Mayor Pete the new chosen one?

Among all potential candidates, she is the only one that I am concerned about and that is because I don't know enough about her. How is she a terrible candidate? Any major past issues ready to be brought up?

This feels like a "Let me google that for you" moment

And then there's her Hillary-esque personality reputation: How Amy Klobuchar Treats Her Staff
This much is not in dispute: For years, Ms. Klobuchar has had among the highest rates of staff turnover in the Senate, according to a review of congressional offices from the website LegiStorm.
...
Among other concerns, her office’s paid parental leave policy has been described as unusual on Capitol Hill. Two people familiar with the policy said that those who took paid leave were effectively required, once they returned, to remain with the office for three times as many weeks as they had been gone. The policy, outlined in an employee handbook, called for those who left anyway to pay back money earned during the weeks they were on leave.

After receiving questions about the policy from The Times, Ms. Klobuchar’s office said it would be revised. “We offer 12 weeks of paid maternity and paternity leave for our staff and have one of the strongest paid leave policies in the Senate,” said a spokeswoman, Elana Ross. “We’ve never made staff pay back any of their leave and will be changing that language in the handbook.” She declined to provide a copy of the current policy as written.
...
Others said that Ms. Klobuchar often squandered time and mental energy on trivial matters, obsessing over perceived snubs in news media clickbait about who was up or down in Washington and repeatedly suggesting that an inferior staff was standing in her way.
...
Ms. Klobuchar’s exasperation often appeared connected to two factors: an abiding fear of being embarrassed in front of colleagues or in the press and the conviction that she works harder than her staff.

In one message, in which she said she had not been prepared properly for an event, Ms. Klobuchar reminded her team of the hours she kept.
“Please don’t claim lack of time,” she wrote, asking what else might explain their failure. “I flew in at one in the morning. I don’t have that luxury to blame lack of time. Unless YOU were up working at one am, and up again five am the next day, please don’t claim lack of time. That was when I was up.”
In private, she could deliver slashing remarks without particular provocation. Parched one day in the Capitol, she turned to a member of her team and said, “I would trade three of you for a bottle of water,” according to a person who witnessed it.

Great post!

Whenever they start pushing "centrist" Biden with his sense for bi-partisanship this picture jumps into my mind as a clear illustration of what THEY mean:

Burisma is a snowflake on an iceberg compared to Rosemont Seneca Pipeline and our bipartisans being purchased by China.

Mad Max (paraphrased) -
1) The democrat party can be bought
2) We have lots of wealthy donors in California; we should have more say.
3) Iowa and New Hampshire aren't reflective of the nation - California is.

View: https://youtu.be/c3-hi5TxAe4
Translation....she thinks that California should make ALL of the decisions......that "minority states" like NH and Iowa should have no say

Seems like a vanilla Democrat (nothing special, just the typical crap one would expect). Unless she does something off the rails, if she can make it to nomination then she could be a serious threat.
"The reason we have gun control is because politicians have caved to the NRA." That's pretty much all I need to hear.

She's pretty much your cookie-cutter moonbat, generally. Her main problem, honestly, is that she isn't the anointed one this round. Even rags that are in the bag for the left like the NYT and HuffPo are running critical articles. It's not her turn, and the D establishment is making that clear.

Bernie is the radical out in the open commie boosted by the zombie factory in academia. Pete B. is the gay Obama backed by the same red diaper raising people. Finally Bloomberg the tiny tyrant is going to try to buy himself a hostile takeover of the DNC.

Those 3 factions are going to tear each other apart.

More likely Bloomturd. He has money and he's hiring up all the organizers in the states voting on Super Tuesday.

She claimed in a debate that she would be "opposed" to a socialist for president but she supports all the same positions.
