Or so it would seem. In 1971, Bernie Sanders launched his first bid for Senate. In 1972, he published this essay about how, at heart, men and women really hate each other. Read the first few lines.
Senator Bernie Sanders (D-VT) styles himself a 2016 presidential contender. If a Republican candidate had ever written an essay like the one Sanders wrote, it would be leading every news show, every talk show, and every social media Top Hits. But he’s a Democrat, so the Left is giving him a pass.
In 2008, Republican VP candidate Sarah Palin mentioned that you can see Russia from Alaska (which is true). Palin look-alike Tina Fey of SNL spun it into the comedy gold line, “I can see Russia from my house.” The Left put Fey’s words into Palin’s mouth so often that multitudes of voters thought Palin was a moron.
In 2012, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney talked about how much care he had put into hiring females for his Massachusetts gubernatorial administration. He instructed his staff to headhunt qualified women and was proud of the fact that they had given him multiple binders filled with women’s resumes to consider. The Left turned the phrase “binders full of women” into a symptom of the GOP’s alleged war on women.
But Bernie’s creepy sex essay?
“What difference at this point does it make?!”
