Bernie/jerk reaction

Amid all the horrified incredulity on this side of the Atlantic at the continued popularity of Donald Trump among segments of US society, we should take the opportunity to celebrate the extraordinary margin by which Bernie Sanders defeated Hillary Clinton in the New Hampshire primary in pursuit of the Democrat nomination. Sanders' campaign appears to be gathering momentum and, like Trump, he's busy making a mockery of his supposed outsider also-ran status. Unlike Trump, though, he's not a dangerous imbecile.
