I go on about this a lot because it annoys me. The Hill reported today that “Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) has confirmed that he will run for reelection in the Senate as an independent in 2018, despite recent pressure from some Democrats to join the party.”
“I am an independent and I have always run in Vermont as an independent, while I caucus with the Democrats in the United States Senate. That’s what I’ve been doing for a long time and that’s what I’ll continue to do,” Sanders told Fox News.
“I’ve been an independent since the early 90s. I was a governor as an independent,” King told CNN. “That’s who I am.”
That’s great, Bernie. You gotta be you and all that, but how come you morph into a Democrat when it suits your needs? I guess you gotta be you unless you gotta be something other than you.
Political parties are important for a reason. You could look it up.
