Poor Jon Ralston, the little liberal Nevada blogger who couldn’t. Here’s one of his tweets from Saturday night…
“The story right below the Sanders wins story on Adelson’s site: ‘Nevada Republican activist says he caucused for Sanders.’ The ‘reporter’ talked to ONE guy, a con artist who always seeks attention, and built the second lead story on the site around it. Will not link. #journalism”
OK, let’s translate a little: “Adelson’s site” is the Las Vegas Review-Journal, the state’s largest newspaper and one of the MANY media outlets Jon no longer works for – which he’s been butt-hurt about ever since.
“Adelson” is Sheldon Adelson, owner of the Las Vegas Sands, an avid Trump supporter and an extremely generous GOP donor. So naturally, Ralston hates him.
The “reporter” is Debra Saunders. Saunders is a White House correspondent, an award-winning journalist, an author and nationally-syndicated columnist. Which Jon is deeply jealous of – especially the part about Debra working in DC, where Jon has never been good enough to play.
The “ONE guy,” of course, is yours truly.
Similarly, Jon has always been jealous that I’m an actual player in the political arena while he sits up in the peanut gallery heckling from the cheap seats.
He’s also extremely thin-skinned, a bully and doesn’t take criticism very well. So he loathes me for (a) daring to stand up to him and (b) exposing and embarrassing him so often and so well.
Now, as to the story he refused to link to because his tender widdle ego is so fragile, here ‘tis, complete with the “Most-seen video” that made Jon’s head explode in another or his patented Twitter-rants:
The story was about my switching parties for the Democrat caucus so I could vote for Bernie for two reasons:
(1) To demonstrate the absurdity of same-day registration & early voting for a caucus, and…
(2) Hoping for a nationwide civics lesson in the fall clearly teaching Americans the virtues of free-market capitalism vs. the evils of socialism.
I later added a third reason: So I could legitimately be a “Democrat for Trump!”
And while Ralston ignored those points – not that he would understand them anyway – they were covered by, you know, real reporters in real media…
(And, psst, South Carolina Republicans are planning to do the same thing I did in their state’s Democrat primary this Saturday. Click here)
Look, I never expected “Operation Caucus Chaos” to be a deciding factor in the race. The Bernie Bro’s certainly didn’t need us. Bernie crushed the Democrat Party establishment all on his own; thoroughly embarrassing the likes of Dina Titus, Steven Horsford and Yvanna Cancella (Biden Gals) in the process.
The point was to make a statement and irritate liberals. Mission accomplished.
And as a side benefit, I got under Ralston’s prickly skin. Again. Sweet.

Still time to help support irritating liberals by making a donation to Citizen Outreach in our Leap Year subscription drive.
There are unconfirmed reports that some donors have noticed as much as a 10-point boost in their IQ score after donating.
Of course, you all are pretty high up there in that department already, but heck, every little bit helps, right?
