Does Bernie Sanders need a Food Taster?

It's interesting to see Bernie Sanders shuffle around with his wife, no evident security, pulling his little roll-aboard bag, in need of coffee and a Danish to get the motor started. The Bern is grumpy, but he's 75 and he's earned it.

Contrast that if you will to Hillary Clinton and a full Secret Service Detail, an army of handlers (working on her next 'reset'), advisors, and food tasters.
I don't think that Bernie Sanders would do a swan dive into his oatmeal without assistance and the Clinton machine is known for making that happen.
Sanders needs some sort of bullet proof clothing, loyal retainers and a food taster (there is a precedent)(Barack's food tasters) to keep him safe since he's now a clear and present danger to the pre-anointed Queen of America. Any Byzantine satrap would take the same precautions. Is Bernie? I don't know. That remains to be seen. Will he make it to the convention or will he end up playing in the same harp band as Vince Foster?

Could Sanders (cold as a marble slab) still win the Democratic Party's nomination if somebody put a voodoo hex on him - "Weekend at Bernie's" style???

Absent Sanders, Clinton in heavy custody, who might fill the void?

After all, Hillary Clinton herself said that she ran as the third Obama term. And we known that Barack doesn't want to leave his cushy job at the White House if he can't be UN Secretary General or the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court.

AND ON TO TED CRUZ

Does Ted need a food taster? 

Could Ted end up looking like Grandpa Munster after a dose
of 'cough syrup'? Best ask Dr. Carson.
This is how the headline read: Republican presidential hopeful Ben Carson on Tuesday pointedly accused Ted Cruz’s campaign of spreading false rumors during the Iowa caucuses claiming the retired neurosurgeon was suspending his bid, in a coordinated effort to seal Cruz’s victory Monday night.

Cruz apologized. But everyone knows that he's pulled every filthy election trick that he can to puff his numbers. To me, that puts him at the bottom of my list. To the neurosurgeon, familiar with what causes the brain to work, and to make it not work...maybe Cruz needs a food taster too?

  1. I've never seen such an incredible likeness to a Munster.

  2. "Someone who can beat Hillary" that is a nice thought. Where does the line form? Who will get to throw the first punch... the winner of best out of six coin tosses?

    1. A thousand years ago, they'd put her in stocks in the town square and people would throw eggs, produce or urinate on her. Maybe it's time to bring back an old custom?

  3. Food tasters, as it was in the days of ancient Rome.

  4. All of this Democrat talk is just jibber jabber. Either the economy starts improving or the Republican (whoever that is) is a slam dunk to win the presidency.

    The Dems can blather all they want about how Obama saved us from Armageddon after he was elected, and that millions of jobs were created under his watch but none of that will matter. If Uncle Joe Bob is still working at Walmart as a greeter instead of his old gig at the mill, the Dems are toast.

    And now Uncle Joe just got his pink slip from Walmart.

    1. Walmart is clearly not doing well. Is it the canary in the mine?

  5. I read somewhere that Bernie's net worth is only $300,000.00. How could someone be in a job for 25 years, that pays what he's getting, and have a net worth so low. I would attribute it to stupidity and not saving at least 10% a year. Bernie the Economist!

    1. I think that's true. He's not a thrifty man. Neither is he all that bright, but a lot of people want to pick the pockets of others, and it's a popular message.

    2. Bernie knows that he need not save any of his own money, there's always other people's money to sponge off of in his old age.

      No need to be thrifty, guys. Bernie's got all the rest of us as his piggy bank.

    3. Yes, the promise of collectivism.

      He has a generous retirement package from Congress. If you factor that into his net worth, it's far in excess of $300K.

  6. Apparently Bernie now has USSS coverage... Guess the Clintons missed their opportunity... Re Cruz, he's dropping fast in my opinion. Rubio and Carson are looking better and better.

    1. Didn't know that with Bernie. I thought the US-SS kicked in later in the process.

      Cruz's people played very dirty in Iowa. I don't know that he personally knew or encouraged the fraud, but not firing them publicly and cleansing it is a vast mistake if he wants to move forward.

  7. Cankles, is a choking hazard for ol Bern...

  8. How many setbacks before Shillary strokes out? Having spent many years in the car biz "selling the deal" dog and pony shows, I suspect Sanders function is to show Shillary is "tough" and capable of winning.

    1. I think that the FBI will eventually take Hillary out at the cankles and that, will cause the Dems to reorganize (without including Bernie). The fireworks will begin in ernest when the communist portion of the Democratic Party (supporting Sanders) comes into contact with the Democratic Party that wants to win a national election.
