Bernie lost my support three weeks ago when he started combing his hair. Conformist bastard.

    Give him a break. Maybe he was trying to tone his hair down for all those swooning women fainting at his feet every time he offers them free college for life.

@ bearded guys moding a criminal and a moron…YAWN

why would i want to watch two idiots babble nonsense?

i’ve w*rked in psych wards before…

Did Barney the Red Communist attack Hillary’s criminal activity while SoS? If not they he isn’t really trying to win the presidency. Maybe just attempting to win a position in the Clinton White House.

The appropriate interrogative with respect to any Democratic debate is not “How?” but “Why?”

Sanders Claus: “On our worst days, it’s fair to say we are 100 times better than any Republican candidate.” at being Communists.

Yeah, but who is the more Progressive? The Socialist Communist or the Lying Communist?

Bernie Sanders Claus: “The business model of Wall Street is Fraud.” so I’ll shake down people my way.

Progressive Platform: “I never met a refugee I didn’t like – terrorist, drug addict, drug dealer, child molester, felon, seeker of abortion, seeker of deep pockets, cultural nonconformist, Islamist fanatic, liar, fraud, identity thief and future Deemocrat. One big happy village.”

It was like watching an argument in the dining room of the Belle Vista elderly housing complex over who took the last packet of Blueberries and Cream instant oatmeal

Seriously, why do I never hear they’re going to have these things until the next day?

We homeschool, so we watched the debate and deemed it civics. I know that we are not to say anything positive about the evil Other Side, but we honestly found it much easier to watch than the sniping herd of Republicans. (And, in some respects, it was more productive educationally to consider and address the positions of those with whom we disagree.)
