Look out, Shrillary. Hard left nutcase Bernie Sanders is right behind you and closing in fast:
Sanders, a self-described democratic socialist and a long shot for the White House, scored a strong second-place finish to Clinton by drawing 41 percent in a straw poll vote at the Wisconsin Democratic Party convention. Clinton won 49 percent.
The Vermont senator received 208 of 511 delegate votes at the state convention in Milwaukee on Saturday, while Clinton won votes from 252 of the delegates, leaving her just short of a majority. Both Vice President Joe Biden and former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley, who announced his candidacy late last month, received three percent of the vote. Former Virginia Sen. Jim Webb, who is considering a bid, won two percent of the vote, while former Rhode Island Gov. Lincoln Chafee, who announced his long-shot candidacy last week, received one percent.
Looks like Sanders is cornering the market on the anyone-but-Shrillary vote — which puts him in the catbird seat if the wheels come loose on Shrillary’s standoffish campaign, which she has arrogantly conducted like a coronation.
Sanders belligerently advances values that would be a better fit for the Soviet Union than America. But if Obama could get elected twice, no one is too conspicuously unsuitable or too far to the left. Republicans may yet develop some semblance of a spine, in which case Shrillary will be too busy dealing with criminal charges stemming from her influence peddling to fend off Sanders.
The “mainstream” media will then whitewash Sanders and demonize his opposition, seeing to it that this malevolent anti-American screwball is the next president. The good news is that based on his Senate voting record, he would actually be an improvement on what we have now in terms of radicalism:
