A pithy and sarcastic critique of the corrupted American electoral process

This is about three weeks old now. Don’t know how I missed it. Maybe because I can’t read everything, even though I try. Andy Borowitz over at the New Yorker wrote a pithy and sarcastic critique of our corrupted American electoral process by pointing out the fact that Bernie Sanders has disqualified himself for the 2016 presidential nomination process. Sanders is incapable of raising the billion dollars required these days to run for presidential office. As Borowitz correctly points out, the system works by giving billionaires control of the process, who crush the hopes of everyday Americans by rigging the system to exclude populist candidates like Sanders.
