That said, I didn't go so far as to party with Daniel Ortega as Bernie did. That was part of the oppo research that Hillary didn't hit him with, but the Pubs certainly would have in the general.
    I listened to Bullet the Blue Sky many times so I'm with you. Do you have a link on Bernie's relationship with Ortega?

    Did a quick search and found a few pieces from back in 2016. Didn't find the 1 I remembered which I think was from October of that year, which was an interview with Pub operatives talking about much of the same stuff that is in these pieces. Hillary ran a corrupt primary and used the Dem political apparatus to unfairly stymie Bernie, but she largely didn't hit him with the oppo stuff the Pubs would have hit him with.

    Well, to be fair, The oppo stuff the Pubs used on Hillary was largely fabricated (a lot of it by Russian Trolls) so they may not have used any real connections between Bernie and Ortega.
