What Bernie Has Already Won


Michael Goodwind has a column at the NY Post where he opines that regardless of who wins the Democrat’s nomination, Bernie has won the future of the party. It’s his agenda not Hillary’s that will make its way into future platforms.

America doesn’t need a double dose of the same bad medicine, but that is what young Democrats want. They believe Obama has been too moderate and see Clinton as even more old-school.

Just so, and bad medicine is a good analogy. The inept regulatory state expanded by President Obama and our presence in the world that he’s contracted have weakened the nation. Just as bleeding George Washington with leeches was not helpful during his terminal illness, another, stronger dose of Obama’s medicine will not be good for America.

It’s being reported that Hillary may wind up with the same number of delegates from New Hampshire as Bernie even though he won a crushing victory at the poles. Here’s how.

popcorn4bkThere were 24 delegates up for grabs in the New Hampshire primary to be awarded proportionally based on the vote tally. Bernie won 15. Hillary got 9. However, there are also 6 superdelegates. These party elders have not been swayed like the many youngsters who voted for Bernie, and they intend to cast their convention votes for Hillary who they see as the electable candidate.

9 + 6 = 15. It’s a tie.

Sanders is wrong about most things, but he’s right when he says the deck is stacked against him.

Income Inequality


The Washington Free Beacon has a post up titled Wealth of Congressional Democrats Spikes Despite Income Inequality Agenda. (H/T, Instapundit, who points out that they misspelled because of.)

The individual median wealth for congressional members in 2014 hovered around the $1.1 million mark—a jump of 6.7 percent from 2013. According to the most recently available numbers, the wealth of American households, by comparison, sat at $56,335 in 2013, meaning that one member’s net worth is equal to that of 19.5 households.
