Artists join together and create The Bernie Anthem

Sanders supporters release 'Feel the Bern' anthem

Supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) have a new anthem to help them “feel the Bern.”

Songwriter Alex Ebert, lead singer of the band Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, and “GasLand” filmmaker Josh Fox are teaming up for a new tune and video called "Feel the Bern" to support the Democratic presidential candidate.

“The Bern, the Bern. Feel the Bern, feel the heat, in our lives,” the folksy singers croon in the video that also features clips of Sanders, released Monday. “No more lyin’, no more empty talk,” the song continues.

"I felt like Bernie presented the first opportunity for me to feel honest in writing a sing-along in the simple tradition of social movements focused on a presidential candidate,” Ebert said in a statement. “The intention is for the verses to be improvised and changed as circumstances dictate, with only the choruses are the consistent refrain."

Dems Beat Back Big Koch Money Spent In Virginia State Senate Race

The Kochs constant commercials that splashed across our television screens were just so darn scary. Be afraid! Be very afraid! They tried to upset state Senator John Edwards bid for reelection and lost, spectacularly.

What a shame...all that money down the drain.




State Sen. John Edwards comfortably won re-election Tuesday, beating back hard-fought challenges from Republican Nancy Dye and independent Donald Caldwell.

“This is a victory for a philosophy of government that says government should lift people up,” Edwards, D-Roanoke, said triumphantly to a crowd of supporters Tuesday night.

“It’s an affirmation of the service we together have given to this district over the last 20 years.”

Edwards, who won his sixth term in office, added the race for the 21st District seat was “very, very intense” this time around.

“It’s taken a toll on everybody,” he said. “I cannot thank you enough for all that you did. Morning, noon and night, you never gave up. You fought, fought, fought.”
