So I have C-SPAN radio on this morning as I’m taking my eldest to his eye exam, and I’m in full, helpless, Dear God These People mode while listening to the call-ins. You can’t help yourself, you know. They’re endlessly fascinating, in a horrible sort of way.
This one guy, case in point: self-proclaimed Democrat. Loudly wants Hillary Clinton (who is 67) not to run, because she’s ‘too old.’ …OK, I have the same complaint. So the moderator asks this guy who he does like, and first he (genuinely, I think) said ‘Elizabeth Warren.’ …Who is 65. And then the caller says ‘Bernie Sanders.’ That would be the point where I start fake-yelling at the radio, because I know that it’ll make my kid laugh: “DUDE! SANDER’S OLDER THAN CLINTON IS!” Which he is (73: and mind, I had to look the exact age up).
Ah, C-SPAN. Never change. Never, ever change.
