In 2007, Charles Johnson was all over the 2008 Presidential campaign, cranking out posts like a kindergartner on a 3-day glucose bender with a mouth full of wheat paste and safety scissors. Everyone breathlessly awaited each brilliant assessment of the candidates, and we weren’t disappointed.

Apparently Charles IS down with this:

That’s former Obama speechwriter Jon Favreau on the left, and he thinks Donald Trump is “gross.”

Keep it real, Charles. Can’t wait until you jump on the Bernie bus and blow out the rear tires.
