Bernie is McGovern 2.0 without the humanity, war record, profound spirituality, or accomplishments. And he's a Jew. They killed Jesus in case you forgot. And he's a commie. And they killed everybody but Jesus. In case you forgot.

Joe's got a backup job if this falls through.

Never would have guessed him taking MN, MA, ME. This is stunning.

I didn't think to register to vote but I should, just to vote for Biden. He's horrible but he's not peddling totally insane crap like the rest of the field.

Solid predictions, Spells! Biden had a very strong showing. Winning California saved Bernie's bacon for now, but I don't think he can have another night like that one.

I think Warren really fucked it up for Bernie in Minnesota and Massachusetts. Given she has no chance of winning, her persistence has to be on orders from the DNC to tank Bernie's wine aunt and cat mom constituents.

Bernie has a press conference. I wonder if he's going to threaten to go to November, as the nominee or as a 3rd party spoiler.

Well it all certainly speaks to a very divided Democratic electorate. Don't know how many Bernie Bros are willing to hold their nose and vote for Biden in November after Bernie's treatment by the DNC.

About as many as voted for Hillary in '16.

The current Democrat establishment just doesn't get it. Trump won because he built a movement around himself. He talked big and got people to buy into his rhetoric. He got people excited to go out and vote FOR Trump just as much as the "Fuck Hillary" vote. Throwing some milquetoast geriatric dementia case against Trump is doomed. The only people who will go out an vote for Joe Biden are the anti-Trump Dems. Joe's not going to mobilize anywhere near the fence sitters he'll need to compete with Trump.

How much passion is there for Joe Biden?
Unless you fully hate Trump would you even leave the house to jump on the Biden Bus?

He's pro blue collar union, unlikely to threaten social security or Medicare, pro fracking in practical terms, and a family man whose wife works for a living and bodychecked a couple Lena Dunham lookalikes on Super Tuesday. My guess is that he'll do well with women over 50 and rust belt voters who voted for Obama twice and then switched to Trump, and a few other groups that don't have twitter accounts.

I'm loving looking at my facebook feed and seeing the wailing and gnashing of teeth from my progressive friends-- it's almost as great as it was when Trump won. Especially black progressives-- they're in absolute shock.

Bernie is all mouth. He doesn't have the balls to take on Biden. There was no comeback here, Biden received the Blue Meanie (Klobuchar) and Butt Plug's support. It was a consolidation.

Biden has zero plans. Just wants to heal the nation. Good luck with that.

Bob Dole was the most uninspiring candidate I can remember. Biden puts him to shame.

Guaranteed he's going to pander and have that fat delusional Michael Strahan lookalike Stacy Abrams as his VP pick.

Kasich and Cruz and Rubio are all pissed that the other two guys didn’t quit.

Voter turnout in the primary Super Tuesday was way up. That means enthusiasm is way up. For Milquetoast Joe.

Yeah, if everybody didn't hate Cruz they could have done similar.

He'll get eviscerated by Trump. Trump is younger, has more energy and much better on his feet. Biden can play the victim card of a senior citizen being bullied. He has no platform to discuss.

^^^That's a good point. The weakest part of Biden's platform is Biden himself.

The old saying in politics that you can't beat somebody with nobody applies here. Biden isn't nobody but he hasn't made himself somebody either. Many VPs before him had a strategy is not doing or saying much and hoping that being or having been VP is enough to get the votes. Sometimes it works. But Biden isn't good enough in any area to make people not care about his flaws, and he's not good at winning people over.
