Sounds freaking terrific to me --NYT Cohen on Sanders

If this is supposed to show how absurd Sanders is, I think we need a lot more of it.

"Let's live on the planet as if we intend to stay."

On both sides of the Atlantic, grumpy is good in politics. Outsider is good. Plain talk is good. Trump's "Deal with it," is the phrase du jour.

Sanders wants to expand Social Security, take America to a single-payer European-style national health system, invest massively to restore America's crumbling infrastructure, make public college tuition free, get rid of "starvation wages" for workers, tax Wall Street trading, end America's wars, and break up banks that are too big to fail.
