"It is impossible for me to say in my book one word about all that music has meant in my life. How then can I hope to be understood?--Ludwig Wittgenstein

Swing and a miss

Big, fat, slow pitch right over the plate:

During CNN's Democratic debate Thursday, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) struggled to name a decision that Hillary Clinton has made based on donations from Wall Street.

....

Instead of pointing to a specific instance of Clinton's being compromised by receiving financial services industry money, Sanders spoke broadly of the industry's influence.

"The obvious decision is when the greed and recklessness and illegal behavior of Wall Street brought this country into the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression of the '30s, when millions of people lost their jobs, homes and life savings, the obvious response to that is you've got a bunch of fraudulent operators, and that they have got to be broken up. Now, Secretary Clinton was busy giving speeches to Goldman Sachs for $250,000 a speech"
Yeah, that's tellin'.....wait, what?

Mighty Casey has struck out.
