Electable Lesser Evils, Aren’t either.

Remember Dukakis, Kerry et al? The dominant argument of their supporters on the left was that were “electable,” –a corollary to the law of the “lesser evil”. That’s because you need an “electable” candidate to be the “lesser evil,” and leftists are by definition “not electable.”
This election season, Hillary is “electable” and touted as the “lesser evil” required to prevent the crazies from occupying the White House. Sanders is, of course, “unelectable” and so ineligible for “lesser evil” status.
But, again, remember, Dukakis and Kerry turned out to be “unelectable” as well.-mm
