Warren Endorses Sanders

Just kidding. The fightin’ Oklahoman dropped out of the Democratic primary race on March 5th and, to the amazement of the more credulous among us, she did not throw her support behind Bernie Sanders, whose progressive agenda she supposedly shares. Instead, Warren stood by while the parade of hacks and hangers-on on who were her rivals — Buttigieg, Klobuchar, even (hilariously) Harris — lined up to make President Credit Card’s victory in the quest for the nomination an overdraft fee accompli.

The deal is not, however, done and the cake is not quite baked, especially as the storylines of Biden’s vacancy, Trump’s venality, and Corona’s fatality continue to veer off in unpredictable and terrifying directions. Bernie fights on, and the socialist movement (for which he is merely the most prominent public avatar) is determined to press on for change. Meanwhile, a very nervous world awaits the unknown. So, storyteller — how does the story end?

Here is our latest round-up of the best-of-the-web, picked by our editors, for your Quarantine Boredom Satisfaction.
