Why Can’t Liberals Do Arithmetic?

Why Can’t Liberals Do Arithmetic? By John Hinderaker. From Bernie Sander’s press secretary:

Why are people like this allowed anywhere in our political system? Why didn’t anyone check? Why wasn’t this person prevented from having her position — on the grounds of incompetence — by her colleagues? Because they are similarly incompetent? Is this why the decisions are so poor nowadays?

Who can forget the wonderful moment on MSNBC when Brian Williams and a guest from the New York Times Editorial Board assured us that Michael Bloomberg’s $500 million campaign spending worked out to $1 million for each one of the 327 million people in the United States?

That was mind-numbingly stupid, but Bernie Sanders’ press secretary has equaled it. …

The population of the US is about 320 million.

The actual number of personal bankruptcies in the U.S., from any and all causes, is around 750,000 annually …

What is concerning is that these liberals don’t just make math errors, they apparently have no idea of basic information…. The thought of these people actually wielding executive power is frightening.

No wonder the new postmodern left makes crazy promises and spends to much. They just don’t understand what is going on. We are being led by incompetent nitwits. Speak well, dress nicely, quick with a withering putdown if you transgress political correctness, but ignorant and cannot think? How trendy and po-mo.
