Rather strange Press Release from the Vatican this morning.
This, if it is indeed true, will be quite momentous. Lombardi has been running the Holy See Press Office for nearly a decade — not always with alacrity and grace. His ‘howlers’ drove me nuts. It really will be a case of GROBR — Good Riddance of Bad Rubbish. But I won’t believe it until I actually see a Press Release stating that he has left. Lombardi at times made Niccolò Machiavelli look like he was Pope John XXIII! I have been convinced that Lombardi has ‘compromising’ photographs of the popes. To I that is the ONLY explanation why he has not been kicked way across the Tiber.

Of course you will never be rich if you fritter away your hard earned money (or money you get us handouts) on lost causes. Rich people, on the whole, are good at not wasting their money on lost causes. Jeb Bush folding his campaign is a classic case in point. Rich Republicans are NOT going to waste money once they worked out that the math just does not add up.
As long Hillary Rodham Clinton stays in the race Bernie Sanders cannot overtake her. It is mathematically IMPOSSIBLE because of two reasons: all Democratic primary races have proportional delegate allocations and Superdelegates.
Bernie will have to WIN all the remaining states 77% to 23% to overtake Hillary.
Well Kosher pigs would have to fly to make that happen. Even in Iowa he didn’t win that BIG and I doubt whether he will win with that majority even in Vermont.
So Bernie Sanders doggedly carrying on — angry, sputtering (and spreading germs) and losing — is irresponsible. This has become a BIG ego trip for him in his dotage.
The BEST Campaign Reform that Bernie can pull off is to STOP his campaign!
He is exploiting poor people who are not good at math.
Don’t waste money — even if you got it as a handout.
Clinton will most likely walk away from South Carolina with at least 61 delegates to Bernie’s 41.
