"Regardless of how well Bernie does today, the media will say Hillary is now the Democratic candidate. Baloney. The "momentum" theory of politics is based on momentum stories the media itself generates. Donít succumb to the ďmomentumĒ game. Regardless of what happens today, this race is still very much alive, for at least 3 reasons:

1. In the next few months the primary map starts tilting in Bernieís favor: In later March: Maine, Michigan, Florida, Ohio, Illinois, Arizona, Washington state, and Hawaii. In April: Wisconsin, New York, Connecticut, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island. In May: Indiana and Oregon. In June, California, New Jersey, and New Mexico.

2, Small-donor contributions continue to flow in to Bernie's campaign. In February, the campaign raised a whopping $42 million. South Carolinaís loss didnít stop the flow: The campaign received $6 million on Monday alone.

3. Bernie's campaign is a movement. Americans know we must get big money out of politics and take back our economy from an incipient oligarchy. Thatís why Bernie will take this movement all the way to the Democratic convention in, July 25-28 in Philadelphia (you might make plans to be there, too). "

Bernie button

My Bernie button arrived form zazzle a few days ago and is now on my coat. Yeah, Bernie.


Looking good, Dr. Biden

Nice to see them looking happy.

NYTimes finally reports on Hillary's creating an ISIS haven in Libya

Removes a functioning central government of a state reaching out for detente with the West, and creates a civil war Isis haven that threatens Italy and other Mediterranean states. Destroys the lives of millions of middle class and rural Libyans. Sets womens' rights there back centuries. Nice job, Hill.

Then tries to weasel out:

"When asked to defend her record on Libya, Mrs. Clinton has taken a line quite the opposite of her aidesí previous insistence on her central role in the intervention. ďAt the end of the day, this was the presidentís decision,Ē she told a House committee in October."


"Bernie Sanders Is Jewish, but He Doesnít Like to Talk About It"


The New York Clinton Times strikes again, writing a headline designed to offend everyone.

I didn't even bother to read the article, as I am sure many people won't.

Shame on SEIU. More lying for Hillary.


"Ahead of Nevada's Democratic caucuses, the Service Employees International Union is distributing literature to members touting Hillary Clinton's support for a $15 hourly wage for workers. But Clinton, who won SEIU's endorsement in November, has not actually endorsed a federal $15 minimum wage. Clinton has said since the beginning of her campaign that she backs a federal minimum wage of $12 an hour."

Bernie in the tradition of FDR; Hillary a neoliberal


basically, concentrate wealth with the 1% and the country goes to hell in a handbasket. Bernie knows that. Hillary doesn't, or doesn't care.

Man Captured on Film Being Arrested in a 1963 Protest is Bernie Sanders, His Campaign Says

Source: New York Times

"In recent days, Hillary Clintonís campaign has questioned Senator Bernie Sandersís commitment to civil rights, trying to cement her support among black voters who could be crucial in upcoming primaries such as South Carolinaís.


On Monday, a film company, Kartemquin Films, uploaded footage of a young man, wearing thick glasses, surrounded by police officers who grabbed him by his arms and carried him away.

The man looked like it could be Mr. Sanders, so the company asked the public and Mr. Sanders to help confirm whether it was. On Friday, Michael Briggs, a spokesman for Mr. Sandersís campaign, and Tad Devine, a senior adviser to the campaign, said Mr. Sanders had said it was him...

Mr. Sanders, then a 21-year-old student at the University of Chicago, was arrested on Aug. 12, 1963, while protesting segregation in Englewood, where Chicago Public Schools was planning to build a school. The video was shot by Jerry Temaner, one of the co-founders of Kartemquin Films. Mr. Sanders was charged with resisting arrest."

Another fail, Hillary.

removable bumper stickers

Does anyone know where I can buy a Bernie bumper sticker that I can eventually just peel off? I still have remnants of my Howard Dean bumper sticker on the bumper. I don't want it to be a life's work to remove it after the election. This is not a comment on the results, as I hope Bernie wins, I just don't want my car looking grubby for years.
