Oh, without a doubt the beer would have to be with Bernie, he definitely does have a sense of humor, you just have to be patient.
For instance, here he is, scaring the crap out of a Republican pundit on TV:

Occasionally I listen to NPR. Yesterday had a segment on the top three dem candidates. The conversation confined itself to two of the three. ‘Electability’ and ‘likability ‘ were talked about and almost nothing else. As brain dead a political conversation as you could get. Almost on the scale of party leadership:

“A few hours later, Martin addressed thousands from the convention podium and — in more restrained tones — focused on blaming nonresponsive voters for the failures of Democratic candidates to inspire them. “In 2016 we had 10 percent of Democrats who voted for Donald Trump,” he said. “We had 53 percent of white women who voted for Donald Trump. We had a tripling of the third-party vote throughout our country. And probably most discouraging to me: as consistent Democratic base voters, people who always show up in elections, many of them didn’t show up to vote at all.”

A logical question would be: Why did many of them not show up to vote at all? But Martin wasn’t going there”

That was me.

I didn't vote for several reasons. One being, that I moved to a new state in August 2016 and found it too difficult to get registered to vote. Secondly, I was not inspired to go vote or go through the hassle of registering to vote and figured that Hillary was going to win anyway.

Hmm

Watching tonight’s debate. I find all ot these Democratic candidates to be worthy... except Biden.

Nine of them speak to the issues out of their minds, Biden speaks from talking points and “Obama”.

Trump at his Rio Rancho (Spanish name) New Mexico (more Spanish) rally yesterday:

"Who do you love more? Hispanics, or America?" ROTFMOL

I guess he's campaigning to lose even more bigley than in 2016 in NM...

“Sanders reached the milestone seven months after he announced his candidacy in February, faster than any candidate ever.”
