Sorry, but it’s difficult for me to smile and congratulate Sanders for his narrow Michigan win for one reason: “your position is that there should not be any guns in America, period."
Bernie knew full well that he needed to win the white, rural, hunting vote to have any hope in Michigan, and he knew exactly what he was doing with that classic NRA scaremongering in the last debate. And it worked...he won most of those counties by a wide margin.
I realize it's far from the only thing that made last night’s crazy result possible. But it certainly helped. And in a Democratic primary, I find this sort of thing unacceptable and frankly disturbing.
The NRA sure loves it, though.

Democrats, this is not okay.
