Bernie and the Jazz Butcher

We're not sure who Bernie Sanders' favorite secretary of State is, but we've got a pretty good sense who his least favorite is. 
Hillary Clinton has said positive words about Kissinger in the past, and he has of her, and when the topic came up at Thursday night's Democratic debate in Milwaukee, Sanders unloaded. 
Kissinger was "one of the most destructive secretaries of State" in history, he said, and he was just getting started. 
“I am proud to say that Henry Kissinger is not my friend," he added. 
“Count me in as somebody who will not be listening to Henry Kissinger."
Maybe it's just me, and it probably is, but that particular disquisition made me think of this old song:

Chernenko was my friend
And Brezhnev was my friend
And Andropov he just dropped off
Now Gorbachev is my friend

He's got yer detente right here, pal.
