Paul Vixie (@paulvixie) is one of the geniuses behind the Internet, He recently opined on Twitter:
centrists, who by def’n decide elections, want gov’t to ensure equality of opportunity, not equality of outcome. right to fairness, not aid.
He then linked to a Bernie Sanders tweet.
I think Vixie raises a legitimate question: whether we should judge “fairness” by outcome or opportunity.
Ted Cruz’s father, Rafael Cruz, announced last year that Ted had decided to run for president after God spoke to Ted’s wife, Heidi.
Ha ha! God was only fooling!
It turns out that the Almighty wants Donald Trump to be the Republican candidate and maybe — God help us — President.
As for Hillary and Bernie, it looks like God is still undecided.

Bernie Sanders apologized to Hillary Clinton in the third Democratic debate hosted by ABC News after his staffers accessed Clinton’s voter data. “Yes, I apologize,” he said when asked whether Clinton was owed an apology. “I very much appreciate that comment, Bernie,” Clinton responded.
Quick summary: A Bernie Sanders staffer accessed Clinton voter data on a DNC computer. DNC cut off Sanders campaign’s access to DNC voter data. Sanders sued DNC, fired staffer, apologized to Clinton. DNC restored access.
Sounds like everyone is happy now.
But just a day before, Sanders campaign manager Jeff Weaver accused the DNC of theft:
Two million contributions have come in. Those contributions paid for the data that the DNC has stolen. Those voters and volunteers — that’s their data. That’s not Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s data.
It was a classic Big Lie.
Sanders accused the DNC of theft, but if there was any theft, it was Sanders’ employees who stole Clinton’s voter data.
A new kind of candidate?
