and this isn't a knock on Bernie either. But I mean Bernie got into Congress in part because he was willing to dance with the NRA. He took their money. More importantly, he took there support/impact. And as thanks, it impacted his votes and talking points.
I mean, Bernie isn't as bad as your average politician DC. I easily admit that. But Bernie is still a politician that has lasted decades in DC. Which means Bernie does what they all do too.
