We have often heard that we are obsessed with Trump. We’re not, ofcourse. Really. We’re not obsessed with Donnie Littlefinger at all. But yes, in this election cycle, we have sometimes given undue attention to Trump, as our incredulity turned to shock to borderline panic, but is now slowly returning to a careful equilibrium, as we realise that the majority of American people have not given in to the vile, race baiting, nativist demagoguery. We didn’t pay that much attention to the other side, after all Dems are supposed to be the “normal” ones in this election cycle, right? Not like the crazy bunch on the other wise having a d measuring contest…literally.
After the trainwreck of an interview of Bernie Sanders, which was analysed here by my colleague and co-editor, I thought of exclusively doing a post of Bernie memes, after all with followers like the ones Bernie has, its easier to hammer a point home with memes than words and maths, most of which will be too difficult for them to comprehend anyway.
But, it gave me a headache. I started following his twitter feed, till I couldn’t distinguish it from parody anymore, and realised, if I even try to ascribe a coherent policy it would be an injustice to the discipline of economics.
So, I chose the best FP bits for your entertainment. Please have a few bottles of Merlot right next to you. You’ll need it.
