On this week’s episode of “Curb Your Capitalism,” the Burlington Bolshevik Bernie Sanders sounded more like Larry David than ever. Just as Larry can hardly drive down the avenue or stroll right into a dentist’s workplace with out making individuals’s hate meters begin buzzing, Bernie is getting rantier, more curmudgeonly and fewer of a group participant each day.
Senator Socialist has all the time been the screaming outdated geezer at the subsequent desk in the deli going, “Miss, MISS, I said rye bread NOT PUMPERNICKEL and my root beer is WARM!” He now not makes the slightest pretense of being a collegial member of the world’s most august clubhouse; this week he proved he shouldn’t be in touch with anybody who isn’t paid to humor him.
Among Sanders’s newest batty strikes, it’s arduous to decide on the most hilarious self-own. How about when he stated, “Two people do not have the right to sabotage what 48 people want!!” Yeah, however how about 52 Senators, Bernie? ‘Cause that’s what number of of your colleagues at the moment are refusing to go full Socialist and go a spending plan designed to show us into ABBA-era Sweden.
This isn’t nearly Kyrsten Sinema and Joe Manchin. This is about Sinema, Manchin and 50 different senators hesitating a couple of gargantuan new spending scheme that nobody requested for final 12 months, when all anybody needed was an answer to COVID and a break from Donald Trump’s tweets. Instead of nutty insults about Joe Scarborough and Little Rocket Man, we obtained a nuttier plan to spend $3.5 trillion by the narrowest doable margin utilizing the skeeviest doable trick (price range reconciliation), at a second when the president’s approval rankings are underwater on each single measure.
Here’s a giant distinction between the Trump Era and the Biden Era: not one in all Trump’s tweets ever price us $3.5 trillion, which is bigger than the GDP of Great Britain — the fifth largest on the planet.
After a disgusting violation of Senator Sinema’s privateness by rabid protesters who chased her right into a women’ room and filmed her whereas doing so, Sanders refused to signal a joint assertion condemning that outrageous habits except the assertion additionally took a shot at Sinema herself, for not backing the reconciliation boondoggle. There is no pleasing the man, ever. “Miss? MISS! I like the pastrami but my cole slaw’s a little OFF. Is this FRESHLY MADE or did you get it from a CAN?”
As for Manchin, the different Democratic senator who is asking whether or not we’d like colossal new spending packages when the federal authorities is already working up a $3 trillion deficit — triple what it was in 2019 — Sanders stated, “I can’t speak for Mr. Manchin. I’m not a psychologist.”
So: Socialist Santa needs spending that can enhance authorities debt by 8.9 % by 2050, and Manchin is the loopy one?
“Miss? MISS? I want a KNOCKWURST, that mustard I like that isn’t too SPICY because I got an ULCER, plus a side order of ECONOMIC RUINATION. And MISS, I’m in a HURRY, I don’t wanna be LATE for my PODIATRIST.”
