So we have “fake noose” to go with the media’s “fake news,” not to mention the “fake nous” offered by our universities. More fakery than a plastic surgeon’s office on Rodeo Drive! But I think the week really belongs to Bernie—remember him?—who is a Democrat again (how conveeeenient!), and moreover raked in something like $6 million online in the first 24 hours after he announced his candidacy on the set of Jurassic Park: Vermont Edition.
