I Guess Bloomberg Could Become Emperor Of Samoa Now-- Like Marlon Brando In Apocalypse Now


Bloomberg dropped out of the presidential race this morning, after spending half a billion dollars to... win a couple of delegates from American Samoa. Obviously, he endorsed Status Quo Joe, loving his unofficial campaign slogan, "Nothing will fundamentally change." Want to throw up? "I’ve always believed that defeating Donald Trump starts with uniting behind the candidate with the best shot to do it. After yesterday’s vote, it is clear that candidate is my friend and a great American, Joe Biden." Yesterday, Gabriel Sherman reported that even Bloomberg's gigantically overpaid top staffers were telling him to get out of the race once it came from on-high that beet red South Carolina-- which is incredibly not representative of the Democratic Party-- had decided that poor senile Status Quo Joe is the establishment pick to try to stop Bernie.

They wanted Bloomberg, who has already spent at least a half billion dollars on his ridiculous ego trip, to drop out of the race and join all the rest of the anti-working class candidates and politicians in endorsing Biden before Super Tuesday.

Some of Sherman's sources said that "campaign manager Kevin Sheekey and other top campaign officials argued to Bloomberg that the best chance of beating Donald Trump in November would be for Bloomberg to exit the race to bolster Biden’s candidacy as Biden battles with Bernie Sanders for the nomination. Campaign officials are privately frustrated that Bloomberg rejected their advice to drop out and pour their resources into helping Biden, sources said. 'The dynamic of the race clearly changed,' a Bloomberg adviser told me. Bloomberg disagreed that Biden’s resurgence in South Carolina fundamentally nullified Bloomberg’s candidacy. 'Mike is a data guy, and he’s looking at the numbers thinking, I’ll be damned if I walk away before a single vote is cast for me,' one source said, explaining Bloomberg’s thinking."

Sherman reports that "people close to Bloomberg fear that Bloomberg is playing the spoiler role tonight in delegate-rich states like California by siphoning votes from Biden. 'It’s clearer than ever after the weekend that it’s over and thus he will risk making Ross Perot and Ralph Nader look good if he stays in this,' a person close to the campaign told me. A Bloomberg adviser told me that Bloomberg would consider dropping out after Super Tuesday if there continues to be no path. 'He’s not going to stay in and say, Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead."

Let's keep this in mind now that Bloomberg has dropped out and endorsed Status Quo Joe:

With the dynamic changing and the party sleight of hand still desperate to prevent Bernie's people from taking over, let's talk about the ridiculous world of the power blitzed out of it's mind on corporate herion. What happens if Biden selects Warren as a VP- kinda like submitting Warrens pee to clear his drug screening? Or how about the volatile confusion of Biden getting a plurality and choosing Bernie as VP to confuse the world even more then Trump? Face it Joe and Liz both flipped on Super-Pac money and are highly suggestible to HYPBNOTI$$$MM. Kennedy chose Lyndon so watch out.

Bloomberg could BUY American Samoa. That would make declaring himself emperor all the easier.

If warren or Bernie accepted, it would prove that my eval on both was spot on.

I doubt the party would allow biden/Bernie. they would not want a medical event to put the latter into the oval office. biden has a deal in place with amy or, outside chance, agreement to sell it to mikey. Could be a black woman. Know anyone from GA that fits the bill?

As with Kennedy's choice, biden picking a black woman would serve to encourage a big black turnout for certain swing states. Those voters are easy to fool.

biden would probably encourage the lowest democrap turnout in history. So Trump will win. He'll win the electoral college. But he might even win the overall count too, if biden suppresses enough young and independent voters.
