I'm not arguing that this isn't a giant goat-fuck, because it objectively is.

I'm saying we have nothing to indicate #1 - that this fiasco was intentional; #2 - which way it moved votes/delegates if it WAS intentional.

If he wants to speculate on conspiracy theories for entertainment, more power to him. Which is what I pretty much said in that post.

Good points, all. Perhaps we're giving them too much credit for cunning.

ACRONYM is crab walking, big time.
Months ago they were proud of Shadow Inc being a part of their growing portfolio. Today..."We actually don't have anything to do with them".

It's no conspiracy that Clinton and Obama loyalists run it.

Pete paid them 43k for text support. Is it iffy? Looks like people are going to find out.

Welcome to the big league, Pete.

I called it first yesterday. The post where I said 2 things are going to hold him back. Connecting with black voters, and the alt-right calling for his investigation.

He is not a threat. His national base is weak. He is going to lose either to Bernie or Biden.
I just don't like the guy. The fact that the guy changes positions every day and he assumed victory before any results, just shows what a P.O.S. he is. I was astounded by that.

Just don't get the hate.

Bernie is not electable on a national level. Sorry.

You need to pull much more to the center to woo swing voters. Pete and Bloomberg are right down the middle (for Democratic candidates)

There is no way the DNC will let Bernie win. They will screw him like they did against HRC in '16.
Hmmm some interesting events could unfold. I agree with you about the DNC and Bernie. So the guy the DNC hates has significant traction and the DNC is strapped for cash and losing power. If only there were a billionaire dark horse in the race that could save the DNC in return for their souls.

I'd vote for Bloomberg over Bernie in a heartbeat, honestly.

On a tangent, why should the DNC feel obliged to be fair to Bernie? It's a private entity that can do as it pleases and Bernie - a career "Independent" - is obviously only using the Democratic party because he knows 3rd party candidates start off in a massive hole to climb out of.

Just some random thoughts on a Thursday morning.

Well Bloomberg is the only candidate who has increased life expectancy, according to his commercials. So he clearly seems like the best choice. I’m sure all the Bernie and Warren supporters will support him once they understand they will probably live longer if they do.

Seriously. Follow the provenance of the investors and the creators. All solidly DNC associated.

Is it a conspiracy if it turns out to be true?

Who is doubting that they are DNC associated? EVERYONE IN THE PARTY IS DNC ASSOCIATED.

I mean, we're talking about it like we just found out it's a KGB operation...

We just found out it was a sham operation focused on manipulating the outcome. Great parallelism to a KGB operation...just more clumsy and, thus far, less bloody.
