Progressive Leftists can’t stop losing because they care more for ideological purity than they do for actual winning, according to David Leonhardt in the New York Times. In the wake of the apparent collapse of Bernie Sanders’ democratic-socialist campaign, are Americans “profoundly Progressive” but just haven’t found a candidate who inspires them? Or are they much more centrist than the panjandrums of statism proclaim?
Democrat Presidential candidates Senators Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren unveil plans to tax wealth progressively to fund Medicare for All, and the valiant fight against man-made climate change.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren dances a two-step to win the party nomination as she woos Progressives in the revolutionary style of Bernie Sanders, and comforts the rank-and-file faithful Democrats like Joe Biden does. Is she a political master, or merely setting herself up for President Trump’s charges that she’s two-faced, unstable, dishonest…in other words — a politician!

While drunkblogging the Democratic presidential debates this week, Stephen Green suffered a haunting flash-forward: “What if one of these jokers wins?” Not content to replay this endlessly inside his own private Hell, Steve puts the question to Bill Whittle and Scott Ott…and you!

Rookie Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez gets called out by the Washington Post fact-checker for making up numbers to justify the Democrats “Medicare for All” plan. She brushes off the accusation, suggesting conservatives should focus on the moral substance of her idea, without getting distracted by numbers. Count on Bill Whittle Now to correct the record.
