So much for getting clean for Gene. There’s no getting clean for Bernie.
Here are scenes from the class struggle in Des Moines.
ABOARD BERNIE SANDERS’ CHARTER PLANE TO NEW HAMPSHIRE — The political revolution was put on hold.
When Bernie Sanders’ campaign was preparing for a potential win in the first 2020 contest Monday, his aides and allies envisioned him giving a primetime victory speech, raising millions of dollars from small-dollar donors amid their ecstatic high, and savoring proving so many elites wrong at a party at the Holiday Inn.
Instead, Sanders and his senior aides found themselves working to reassure demoralized and shaken staffers and volunteers on Tuesday.
Worst moment for Sanders since the Berlin Wall fell.
The feeling at the party wasn’t gloom and doom. CBS reported that the smell of marijuana wafted through the air during Sanders’ remarks.
Opiate of the masses indeed.
