The Elections Monster (3)
Some things are too much fun to believe in.
After the last two rounds of the Democratic contest, Bernie Sanders has been beating Hillary Clinton 2-to-1. The strategy that Southern states would run out appears to have worked. Sanders looks viable once again after looking impossible, then unlikely, then disappointing, then dangerous, then finished. Given the holiday season, it should be pointed out that this cycle of constant rebirth is an un-Christian narrative: Jesus died and came back just the once, Bernie is perpetual return. It is much more Jewish in character, Bernie continually finding his way back to an electoral Zion, even after he is far removed.
Even the birds in the air attend to him. Of course West Coast hippies do too.
