Sanding the Competition

At the Democratic debates
on Tuesday

Bernie Sanders' commented
about Hillary Clinton's

email security issues
which some
would term "scandal"

and though it would seem
the opposite on the surface

"The American people
are sick and tired

of hearing about
your damn emails"

is the
"I'm really happy for you
I'ma let you finish"

of 2015.

Because "finish" he did.

According to online focus groups

with a majority of participants
saying he "won"

for what it's worth

maybe Sanders
is the American people's

chosen acceptable-Kanye-West-debate-substitute
after all.
