Call me a conspiracy theorist, but I believe that it will come out later that the Iowa Democratic Party, in conjunction with the DNC, and Pete Buttigieg’s campaign conspired to swing votes to Pete’s campaign covertly. They fucked up when they realized Bernie had receipts.

I can’t say he’s wrong. I can’t. And the simple fact is that the Democratic National Committee, and mainstream Democrats generally, have earned a deep distrust from the Left.
And when we stop to think about it, we don’t even understand why Bernie Sanders is running as a Democrat. Because it’s more than clear to us that, one way or another, The Party will do everything it can to stop Sanders.
Whom among us hasn't done "economic development" in war zones for McKinsey, learned the ins and outs of CIA operations, and later found themself running in a political race against a socialist, using a shady firm for vote tallying, and declaring victory early on accident?

I respect the attempts to salvage Biden's performance, but I think they're wrong. He's a VP with high name recognition, whose argument is being able to appeal to blue collar whites. He finished third among voters without college degrees, and won those w/o any college by a point.
