Today, in strained political analogies

Feel the Bern:

For Bernie Sanders, superdelegates are “kind of like” college football recruits, his campaign press secretary remarked Monday.

“I think what’s important to remember here is that superdelegates are kind of like football recruits,” said Symone Sanders in an interview with CNN’s “New Day.” “You know, they say they are coming but until they have signed on the dotted line and they’re in practice, you don’t know that they’re all the way with you and that they’re on your team…”

Hoo, boy.  If Nick Saban suddenly shows up as an advisor to the Sanders campaign, I guess we’ll know why.

By the way, Bernie, you know they say to win over recruits, you have to start by winning over their mamas.

    The heck does a dude from Vermont know about football recruiting?!

    Bernie doesn’t seem luxurious enough to get my vote.

    He’s recruited Killer Mike, so he’s got them recruitin’ chops. Likely would build many IPF’s as a part of infrastructure improvement, too.

    I guess Bernie is the Democrat’s dog with the freshest breath, street-wise wise, honesty-wise, pending indictment-wise, and otherwise. That’s quite a sales pitch to the superdelegates: “Sure, I was an unemployed socialist until I started getting elected to stuff when I was 40, but I’ve never sold out to Wall Street, claimed I was dodging sniper fire, or enabled my spouse to sexually assault numerous victims (who I then trashed).”

    Oy vey. Such a mensch!

      I’m going with the candidate who most reminds me of Teddy Roosevelt who famously said “talk tough and carry a stick suitable for suspiciously smallish hands!”

    It’s not strained; it’s spot on. They are verbally committed but not bound to anything and yet are counted for the candidate’s delegate total as if it’s a done deal.

    Where else does that happen except for super delegates and recruiting?
