PJ O’Rourke on Bernie Sanders

Another snippet from the column that PJ O’Rourke wrote for BBC News.

The candidate [for the Democrat Party’s nomination for president] who is so far out in front of Hillary [Clinton], that we don’t know who he or she is, is socialist Senator Bernie Sanders.

He’s a socialist! A European-type socialist! He says so himself!

Of course, for many people, especially Europeans, there’s nothing unusual about a European socialist. But in the US, a European socialist looks out of place. ….

Anyway, Bernie Sanders is in favour of making the United States more like Europe or, at least, more like Canada.

PJ O’Rourke, “A Point of View: The rude, vulgar US presidential election“, BBC News Magazine, 13 September 2015.

Bernard “Bernie” Sanders (born 1941) is a United States Senator from Vermont and the longest-serving independent in US congressional history. He caucuses with the Democratic Party.
