Here’s Some Stupid for Afternoon Tea

In which Claire McCaskill calls out Bernie Sanders’ socialism and forces us to compliment Mark Halperin.

….Missouri Senator Claire McCaskill, whose appeal to liberals beyond Not Being A Republican I never will understand, was there, and they were asking her about the mini-sensation that Bernie Sanders is causing out on the hustings these days….

….What came next was a real shock. Mark Halperin asked McCaskill for three policy positions held by Sanders that she would call Socialist positions. McCaskill’s gob was utterly smacked….

….Another reason not to like Claire McCaskill: She just made the staff at the Cafe compliment Mark Halperin.

Now you’ve gone and done it. That last one is beyond the pale.
