Quote of the day

James Poulos:
Populism can be powerful, but only when it's really popular.

Seriously?

FLG watched this video by Robert Reich responding to common criticisms of Bernie Sanders.

FLG is on the other side of the political aisle and has issues with most of the responses, but he literally laughed out loud at a suggested response to Sanders being too old is that "he is younger than 4 of the 9 Supreme Court justices."

A few things here:
1) He's younger than less than half of them?   Whew!   And isn't one of those nine actually no longer living?
2) Comparing somebody's age to the Supreme Court is sorta like saying -- Old?  Got a few of names for your Methuselah, Noah,  & Shem.   Bernie is a spring chicken.
3) Being a Supreme Court justice is anywhere near as demanding as being President of the United States.
