What's funny is Sanders just brushed him off as if he was a nobody.  He seems like a decent guy who is passionate in what he believes in.  Just not much of a presidential candidate.

That move by Bernie was hilarious -- and right out of an episode of Curb :lol: 

 

Re Styer: He's not a decent guy, by any measure. He's one of the worst ones on that stage. 

 

This is funny though:

Reid's gonna Reid.  The first thing I thought of when I heard the audio was a Curb episode.  It would be a good SNL skit with Larry David.  Super Dave (RIP) could easily have played Steyer there.

Politico article on Buttigieg. The author points out the criticism that some have directed toward Buttigieg, and then gets around to defending him. https://apple.news/ASRkIvjzuT2G9XuBycWa7qQ

 

From the article:

The Buttigieg backlash, by my lights, flows from origins that are less ideological than psychological. I noticed it some time ago with some—certainly not all—younger journalistic colleagues in particular. He torques them in ways that seem personal.

They are well-acquainted with the Buttigieg type. They find his patter and polish annoying. They regard his career to date—Harvard, Oxford, McKinsey, the mayoralty—as a facile exercise in box-checking: A Portrait of the bull#### Artist as a Young Man.

Above all, they wonder why the artifice and calculation that seems obvious to them is them is somehow lost on others.

These Buttigieg skeptics in my experience typically overlook another possibility: His admirers aren’t oblivious to fact that he’s partly B.S.-ing. It just doesn’t much bother them. I’ll go a step further: Viewed in the right light, his teacher’s-pet glibness and implacable careerism are desirable traits.

The essence of modern American politics in recent years is contempt. The decades-long erosion of respect for nearly all institutions—the federal government, business, academia, the media—was what tilled the soil for Donald Trump’s election. His insults of adversaries, his gleeful shattering of familiar norms and precedents, are the living expression of the contempt Trump backers feel toward an established order they believe is not remotely on the level.

The opposite of contempt is a deferential faith that, on balance, the established order is on the level. Its most prestigious prizes are worth the effort, worth the ass-kissing along the way. B.S. ultimately is a form of respect. The fact that Buttigieg has spent a lifetime standing on his toes to pluck these apples—president of the Institute of Politics at Harvard, a Rhodes Scholarship, and now a shot at becoming the youngest person ever to reach the White House—is the living expression of that faith.

LITTLE MIKEY ISN’T RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT, HE’S RUNNING FOR PEOPLE’S COMMISSAR: 

 

Bloomberg All In on Climate Change, Wants Gas-Fueled Cars Gone, Ready to Use Executive Order.

 

All these Dem candidates talking about governing via sweeping executive order are setting up Trump’s second term very nicely.

Holy stupidity. Is tomorrow's OpEd going to exol the virtues of a "Biumverate"?

This illustrates perfectly that the press at large isn't necessarily liberal. There's such a huge difference between the political philosophies espoused by people like JFK or LBJ when compared with democrats of today. This shows that it's purely partisan - political values and philosophy have absolutely nothing to do with it.
