$500m later, Bloomberg Quits

$500m later, Bloomberg Quits. By  Jim Treacher.

A lot of people counted Joe Biden out (myself included) just because his brain is a damp ball of socks, but on Saturday he won his first primary ever and then Super Tuesday went his way too.

It helped that Joe had “The Pete & Amy Show” backing him up. Presumably all the voters who were delusional enough to think Buttigieg or Klobuchar would be a good president ended up voting for Biden, whose name is much easier to spell. …

It was also a big night for Michael Bloomberg, who actually managed to pick up 44 delegates. … Mike has reportedly spent half a billion dollars on his campaign, so that works out to less than $12,000,000 per delegate. Pretty good bargain!

But it wasn’t what Bloomberg was expecting, so now he’s taking his apple box and going home. Axios: …

“I’ve always believed that defeating Donald Trump starts with uniting behind the candidate with the best shot to do it. After yesterday’s vote, it is clear that candidate is my friend and a great American, Joe Biden,” Bloomberg said in a statement. …

Bloomberg spent all that money to upend the establishment, more dough than most of us would ever see in a hundred lifetimes, and now he ends up standing on his tippy-toes to kiss the establishment’s butt. It really is terrific to watch.
