Bernie Sanders brings wealth of 19th century ideas to Democratic presidential sweepstakes

Bored by 24 years of being ignored in Congress, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders has entered the presidential race in his bid to be the Democratic Party's ABC (Anybody But Clinton) candidate this year, where he will be ignored by millions of voters. His entrance pushes the median age of a Democratic candidate to 70 as the 73-year-old joins Elizabeth Warren, 65, Hillary Clinton, 67, and Joe Biden 72 in the battle to be the least unelectable candidate the party can find for 2016.

Senator Sanders brings a wealth of ideas from the 19th century including voting rights for women, a graduated income tax, and free public schools. He also favors the prohibition of alcohol, an end to paper money, and diapers on horses.

The irony-challenged Sanders began by telling the Associated Press there are "obscene levels" of income disparity after 6 years of a president who was backed by America's two richest men -- Bill Gates and Warren Buffett -- as well as 15 other billionaires.

“After a year of travel, discussion and dialogue, I have decided to be a candidate for the Democratic nomination for president," Sanders told the Associated Press in the email. "But let's be clear. This campaign is not about Bernie Sanders. It about a grassroots movement of Americans standing up and saying: ‘Enough is enough.' This country and our government belong to all of us, not just a handful of billionaires."

    Would love to post to Facebook to tick off Sanders-supporting nephew, but too many typos make me look stupid.

    4. There's somebody that actually likes Sanders? I figured the people of Vermont were just voting to get him out of the state kind of like they did with Al Franken

  8. "This campaign is not about Bernie Sanders."

    When Bernie Sanders says his campaign is not about Bernie Sanders, then you can bet the family farm that Bernie Sanders' campaign is all about.......Bernie Sanders.

  9. What I like about Sanders is that he freely admits being a socialist, unlike all the other Democrats who pretend not to be.
