Joe Biden has said: “Even Dr. King’s assassination did not have the worldwide impact the George Floyd’s death did.”
In 1968, Joe Biden was in process of graduating near the bottom of his class in law school. I was working in radio and have a different recollection of the events of 4 April than he seems to have.
Oh, no. No, no, no, no, no. No, not at all. I — I – I just think that the, uh, their appeal is becoming more selective.
It looks as if Biden has taken the lead with 397 delegates, and Bernie is not far behind with 356. Fauxcahontas is in a distant third place with 48, but that still more than the 43 that Mini Mike was able to buy. The two dropouts, Mayor Pete and Klobuchar, have 26 and 7 respectively, and the least insane of the Democrats running, Tulsi Gabbard, has 1.
A side note about Sanders and Bloomberg: There’s an old line that says and honest politician is one who stays bought, meaning one who honors the “requests” of his significant “donors.” Bernie and Mini Mike seem to be pursuing what they hope is an honest electorate—one that will stay bought. The difference between the two is that Bernie is promising to use other peoples’ money while Mini Mike is also using quite a bit of his own.
Yep, everything is proceeding more or less as I have foreseen.
