AUDIBLE: THIS IS A LOT OF CHARDONNAY
“It will only get worse, if it is possible, the intensity and the volume, the bombing plane, take a walk to the top.” Lobbyist Larry O’brien, to speak to Roll Call over, the enormous number of congressional fundraising events in Washington this week, 118 to a counter.
 
FROM THE STANDS
“I can feel ever, like a fool! Both Senator Sanders and Senator Warren to propose to pay off outstanding student loan debts. How stupid of me, you have already paid off! So much to scrimp and save to pay off a legitimate debt that I incurred with the full (but erroneous) view that I would be required to pay it back. I was also under the income limits, if I paid the loan, do you think there is no hope that the two could find the senators of wool, to reimburse it in your heart, the me, for what I paid for the stupid way? Not that I expect to be rewarded, as are fiscally responsible, by those who are anything but (and I mean both the house and the Senate). Any chance I could get my unpaid taxes paid/forgiven, if I have to stop my withholdings?” – Kent Haldorson, Beaverton, Ore.

[Ed. Note: I think that the quotas are either always right rock-bottom in fact, Mr. Haldorson. The good news for the Democrats is that the pull-to-the-far-left component of the primary limited by the fact that the two most prominent far-left candidates to fight each other more than they fight the mainstream candidates. The bad news is that long-Sens. are Warren and Sanders in this bidding war, what counts as “far left” is going to get wilder and wilder. By the time the radical faction in the party has on their masters, one can only imagine what the price of admission.]
