The Face of Revolution?

bernie2 Yup.

The roof, the roof is apparently on fire. Well, we don’t need no water… we’ve got Bernie.  Bernie baby, Bernie!  The self proclaimed Socialist is giving the Democratic debutante a run for her (or should I say the big bank’s) money.  Free from the shackles of corporate sponsorship, the Sanders campaign is being carried by an enthusiastic grass-roots movement, spawning spry, if not rich, individual donors.  So sprightly in fact, that his campaign recently broke Pres. Obama’s fundraising record – 2.3 million individual donations to Pres. Obama’s 2.2 million by the end of the year.  The majority were small donations with the average donation at $25.00.  He is close to, and is expected to surpass Hillary Clinton’s $29 million fundraising effort by the end of this quarter.  Should she be concerned?  Yup.

Not only in money but support as well, Sanders has closed in if not surpassed Clinton in Iowa and New Hampshire respectively.  If not already blinded by the prospect of having a vagina as president https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BHJEtTZJ9rY , supporting Sanders should not be a difficult decision. After all, a Socialist by any other name is a Democrat.  He appears to be concerned with the same issues as the majority of the Liberal base; channeling an older, whiter, Elizabeth Warren*.  Could that be the reason the Democratic Party recently blocked the Sanders campaign from its own donor information; a way to slow down his momentum – especially in Iowa? – with the caucus right around the corner?  Within the realm of possibility?  Yup.

Hillary Clinton’s Hillary moment: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mByd4TCoWao .

I rest my case.

* Where the hell is she anyway and what the fuck was that meeting about between her and Hillary Clinton right around the time Clinton announced her Presidential bid and why was Warren the only no-show at the Clinton fundraiser where the other 13 female Democratic senators showed up to support her and why is she not supporting Bernie Sanders anyway?

 

 

 

Monkey Business

Paul Ryan Perpetuates Deception

     Joe Biden made a monkey of Paul Ryan at the Vice Presidential debate last night.  Calling Ryan on nearly all of his malarkey, Biden kept the boy genius on the defense, and at times speechless; seemingly in turmoil when questioned about Roe v. Wade, and other issues where his personal beliefs conflict with that of the Romney campaign’s newly stated ones.  But like a true Republican soldier, Ryan marched onward with the flag of deception flying high. The policy wonk was unable to articulate his campaign’s vision of voucherizing Medicare.  As Biden said, “The numbers don’t [didn’t] add up.”  Ryan was pressed for specifics on foreign policy and, even though he had ample time, still managed to give none.  He continued the Romney campaign’s tactic of providing “low information” voters with no information.

     Something magical happened last night…  something strange, yet wonderful.  Something we are not used to seeing in today’s politics.  Something we may never see again in our lifetime, for its occurrences are few and far between.  The truth won.
