So maybe Slo Joe isn't completely dumb. Announced he asked the Lightbringer to not endorse him. Saves all those embarrassing questions later as to why the Lightbringer didn't endorse him.
Extreme angst. Assume you are a megadoner. You want to insure you have an entre to the new administration. Who, among the 21 announced candidates do you bribe? How do you time your donation(s)?
Next up are the Congressional seats. Donate to the established Donkeys? Donate to the (P)regressive flamers who will probably win the primary but lose the general to someone sane? After all, bribe money only goes so far. How sure are you the politician(s) you bought, stay bought?
Finally, Crazy Bernie, the turd in the punchbowl.
