Regardless of which Democrat is your favorite — and fuck off if you're voting third party or think fascist pig Trump is an acceptable choice — it's getting ridiculous how people can't stand any criticisms between them.
It's. A. Primary.
This is the time to draw differences, and maybe a little metaphorical blood. All will be forgotten in the general.
That said, I like Pete Buttigieg (he's not my #1), but this Biden ad attacking him as inexperienced is brilliant. Still, I think Buttigieg may be doing so well in part because people like that he is fresh out of the wrapper, and the attacks may actually be endearing him to some voters.
I also think Buttigieg's ideologically similar opponents — Klobuchar, Biden — attacking him is probably just helping Bernie Sanders, who has a far better shot at winning the nomination anyway.
But Biden, facing challenges in New Hampshire and elsewhere, needs to start doing better, so he is swinging at the latest guy to do well in the polls (and in the Iowa Caucus, which Buttigieg did, in fact, win).
Watch the attack ad below ...

The precinct captain does a good job of not overreacting. I can't imagine the level of stupid, unless the woman is a fabulous actress trying to grab a little right-wing spotlight ...
Contrary to popular belief, Pete Buttigieg did not outright declare victory in the tumultuous Iowa Caucuses.
Still, he gave an ebullient speech that included the phrase:
... by all indications, we are going on to New Hampshire victorious.
And he is; all the campaigns know, internally, that the day was won by Sanders and Buttigieg or Buttigieg and Sanders, and that is a victory for his small campaign, as well as a historic first — an out gay person will win delegates in a presidential contest.
