The bearded vulture is the only bird in the world that can survive on just bones.
Huckleberry: To be taken with a grain of salt. The author makes no effort to conceal his political prejudice and his inclusion in the dogmatic element of Bernie Sanders' supporters ("a lost opportunity for Sanders supporters to make OUR voices heard") (EMPHASIS added). He does, at least, admit that, unlike the Hubert Humphrey of his example, if Biden is chosen, it will be a choice made by Democratic voters, not by faceless political operatives of the so-called establishment. He fails to grasp the import of what he is saying. His argument is to political wisdom. That is not an argument one makes to the rank and file of voters; it is one that will be heard, if at all, by political operatives who are not swayed by psychologically engineered TV ads. It is precisely because the selection of its candidates has been taken out of the hands of the leaders of the party and turned over to the rank and file voters, that the party is no longer able to devise and employ long term strategic thinking, but, like a band in a bar, must play the music the audience wants to hear at the moment. Mr. Klion also neglects to mention that the youthful and leftward leaning Democrats, who lost out to the establishment in 1968, did prevail in the nomination of the Democratic candidate in 1972. And that, as a result, the Democratic party suffered its most humiliating electoral defeat ever, as Eugene McCarthy was simply crushed by a Nixon landslide.
