The game being played by latter day bernistas is one of motte and bailey between “look at socialist paradise Northern Europe that’s all we want and “late stage capitalism man”. You are a revolutionary who does apologetics for chavismo until someone points out where that went, then you are capitalist loving Switzerland with higher taxes than we have.

I don't get it. I mean, apparently it's supposed to look sexual the way it's cropped, but I still don't get the joke. Who's not into it? The guy looks happy. Is it supposed to be that his knee is a giant dong? I'm so lost.

I think overall your problem is that you don't give a shit about any of those people because they're probably all tiresome fuckheads.

This country can't have several carrier groups AND national health care. We can have one or the other, but not both.

That's not an ideological statement, or a policy preference, or anything else. That's arithmetic.
This is double good because that guy's Twitter handle refers to being a warship from a literal Luxury Gay Space Communist civilization. So I guess you should expect to have both.

Pinchy is real and fabulous. Also, he does not like Johnny Cash. The look on the dog’s face is amazing.

Who the fuck do the people who only speak Luxembourgish talk to? Also, for Switzerland, if you only speak, French German and Italian, do you count as not speaking any foreign languages?

The infallible wiki says that it's a German dialect. They presumably talk to other people speaking German dialects.
