Bad behavior has consequences

Al Giordano
11 hrs
Since yesterday when some white male fake "progressives" for Bernie Sanders started getting violent in Nevada, hundreds of people appeared on Twitter - knowing my organizing history in Vermont - to urge me to move back there and run for US Senate in 2018. This was not in my life plan but they've pledged hundreds of thousands of dollars so far and I actually believe them. Check my Twitter feed. It's something to behold.
My life experience would probably disqualify me from holding political office anywhere but Vermont, but I do know almost every corner of the state and have receipts there. So here's the deal: If at the 2016 Democratic National Convention the "Bernie Bros" do anything to hurt the last one standing between racist Donald Trump, his attempt to scapegoat Mexicans, and the White House, I will move to Vermont, challenge him, and become a US Senator in 2018.
How's that for a Dilemma Action? Pretty good, no?
I could do that for six years. I would win if I did. Or maybe I'll just show someone else who can win that there are millions of dollars out here to help her do it. Either way, it could be fun...

It's real.

8. I do, too.

I am positive there will at least be a book (though I certainly hope he gets a ghostwriter, based on the previous examples we've seen of his writing).

14. I don't see the speaking fees part as

he hasn't had a new idea in 50 years and has just his one speech he wrote in the 1960s on 3 x 5 cards yellow with age and stained with spit.

19. I think he would like to take speaking fees, but

he's kind of boxed himself into a corner on that one. Also, I don't think he can while he is still in the Senate.

10. He's a political organizer and journalism teacher

Provides a newsletter to subscribers before each primary contest with projections. His record is very good. He nailed all but 2.

Read his twitter feed at the link. Very liberal, he's not as pro-Hillary as he is anti-Bernie and Trump.

Here's an example of his genius-

12. He's a lot more pro Hillary now than he use to be..

they post his tweets on The Obama Diary a lot and when the primary first started he was so anti-Hillary.. but then BS happened and he started coming around.

It really made me Happy.. same the members of the Obama Diary.. sometimes they just have to get to know her. And, BS helped with that.. lol

13. Go, Al, Go!

I, for one, would donate to see him topple Sanders if Sanders damages Clinton (the Democratic candidate for President) at the Convention.

This announcement is a big deal. It will get the attention of the MSM.

20. Interesting development!

Looks like Bernie has been burning more bridges than building them. There will be consequences and his revolution mob will have moved on by then with many months of every day reality gone by.
