bernie sanders did a what now?

What they’re saying about the big Bernie Sanders wrote some salacious sex crap back in the 70s for a counter-cultural underground newspaper?

The Sanders campaign quickly tried to distance itself — and the candidate — from the 43-year-old essay. Campaign spokesman Michael Briggs called the essay a “dumb attempt at dark satire in an alternative publication” in an interview with CNN, adding that it “in no way reflects his views or record on women.” He added, “It was intended to attack gender stereotypes of the ’70s, but it looks as stupid today as it was then.”

Sure, sure, sure.

The 2016 presidential field has been quiet about it, but conservative Erick Erickson jeered at Sanders supporters on Twitter.

So far so good…

National Review writer Charles C.W. Cooke, though, dismissed the essay as insignificant.

Makes sense.  Turn to damning his socialist politics.

And.   Three, two, one…

Meanwhile, Bill Kristol and Town Hall’s Katie Pavlich turned the essay on Bill Clinton, using it as an opening to mention past allegations of sexual misconduct on his part.
