Bernie Sanders is no joke

Chasing Pirates

NOTE: I first published this July 2015, when the Trump vs Sanders “joke” was being bandied about. Now, about three months from reality — the conventions/nominations of each party’s presidential candidate — the prevailing thought, accompanied by a lot of head-scratching, is “OMG, it could happen!” Last night, Hillary and Bernie debated in New York; in some polls, they are running neck-‘n-neck.
