In Case Of Bernie…

Looks like Bernie Sanders is on a roll already, building up steam heading into the Nevada Caucuses, and that can only mean one thing – it’s time to drag out Russiagate again, and like our heroic “first responders” the US media are right on top of things, trying to put out the fire.

What really bugs me about this, though — and along with running as a Democrat, it made Sanders a non-starter for me — is how Sanders, despite all the centrist galaxy brains accusing him of being a Russian stooge, has actually been riding the Krazy Train almost since the beginning.

Really, Berners — is this your goddamn hero, the guy who’s going to lead your asses out of the desert? A guy who buys into the empty Russiagate hype, lets himself be rolled and Red-baited, and then bends the knee to a bunch of McCarthyists? Really?

Christ, you guys are going to get so goddamn screwed again — screwed blue and tattooed —  and I, for one, am out of sympathy for you.

Jackpot!

What happens in Vegas isn’t staying in Vegas this time, folks. The word is out about The Skanky App Developed By The Skanky App Developers Partially Funded By The Buttigieg Campaign. This time, it’s another off-the-shelf Google product — an allegedly “secure Google web form” running on a batch of iPads purchased by the DNC, or “dPads”, as it were.

An associate professor of CompSci at the University of Iowa promptly went into “OK Boomer” mode, blaming the age of the poll workers (70) instead of perhaps considering their over-engineered with built-in security vulns cheesy-ass Google “app” which is basically a hammer in search of a nail, and a disaster waiting to happen so obvious that it’s got a goddamn lampshade hanging on it.

Gotta love this closing paragraph, though, with the money quote from some flack at the Alliance For Securing Democracy (spit) — basically, “if you’re cynical about the state of American ‘democracy’ and refuse to participate in elections, then the terrorists win”:

“Regardless of the challenges that may exist in administering the election, I think it’s incumbent on any Nevadan who wants to participate in the caucus to do so,” Levine said. “If you are not participating for that reason, that’s a win for our adversaries, both domestic and foreign.”

D’ahh, fuck this noise; I’m gonna go check out Lou Rawls at the bar…

Up Against The Wall

This is pretty much my prediction for the New York Primary, based on the revelations from a recording of former New York City Overlord and prospective White House purchaser Mike Bloomberg leaked by blogger and podcaster Benjamin Dixon, in which Bloomberg defends NYC’s horrific “stop and frisk” measures directed at poor communities and communities of color in NYC.
