Please Let This Biden Comeback Celebration Last Only 72 Hours
I've been offline since Thursday to avoid seeing Joe Biden's smug face and the elation of the punditry that Bernie Sanders lost in all the ways.
The TL;DR version of this race so far:
Iowa: "the real story tonight is who comes in 2nd, and yeah, the voting was an unresolved clusterfuck."
New Hampshire: "the real story tonight is who comes in 3rd, and yeah, we want a Republican billionaire Hail Mary in this."
Nevada: "the real story tonight is if you add who came 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th, a brokered convention is the right thing to do."
South Carolina: "Biden in 1st, reshapes race, is the frontrunner, fuck you!"
Bonus: "Sanders = Russia, sexism*, communism, guillotining Chris Matthews in Central Park, Bloomberg campaign office vandalism, and HOW ARE YOU GOING TO PAY FOR IT!?!?1?"
*I wish this didn't exist:
.@BernieSanders is trying to put @ewarren and @amyklobuchar campaigns out of their misery by beating them on #SuperTuesday in their respective home states of #Mass. and #Minn. Mistake. He should be focusing on bigger hauls in bigger states, not trying to humiliate female rivals.

Time to call your friends in France and ask where they got their yellow vests from, because that brokered convention is looking more and more likely.
The cat's outta the bag

Not that this was unknown, but like Bloomberg outright saying in a previous debate that he bought members of Congress, I'm surprised that they can't keep their shit on better lockdown.
Oh! And just in case you were wondering: yes, shenanigans with voting stations were ON last night (but who gives a shit?):
