Humor is helpful and good.

See polarbear’s comment posted just now on Stephen Colbert’s comments about Bernie ‘having a heart’.

I’d posted the wrong link here, but maybe it was meant to be.

Rest easy, Bernie Sanders supporters (and, you know, any other human with a conscience): Everyone’s favorite bespectacled democratic socialist appears to be doing just fine after a heart-related health scare Tuesday night while campaigning in Las Vegas.

The senator from Vermont had two stents inserted — a routine procedure not at all exclusive to 78-year-old men who live life traveling from stump to stump across the country — and his team canceled future events until further notice. But all early signs point to a speedy recovery and a full return to the race.

That’s a good news for everyone. Yes, even those in the Democratic Party who find Sanders’ politics far left of where they themselves might comfortably stand. Get well soon, Bernie Sanders. This race needs you back in full form.

But he also forced Biden into his worst gaffe of the night (yes, even worse than the infamous “record player” ramble). It didn’t get much play as a media soundbite, but this moment between the two should be playing in every Bernie campaign ad right now:

Why are we paying so much for healthcare? Well, this is America, where, apparently, things suck.

And that’s why Bernie has attracted so many young voters. Because he makes that extra leap in logic; this is America, but it doesn’t have to be this way.

Once his Dr.says Bernie is good to go, it might be a good time to follow up with the usual med results saying Bernie is more than fit to run the country as persident. I would bet just laying in recovery in the hospital he’s more fit than Trumpcorp.

Curious to see an article comparing her plan to Bernie’s

https://thehill.com/homenews/campaign/464184-warren-unveils-plan-to-empower-workers-raise-wages

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) unveiled a plan to raise wages and strengthen the rights of workers to organize on Thursday, saying that “returning power to working people will be the overarching goal” of her presidency if she is elected.

On day one of a Warren administration, she said she would sign an executive order requiring federal contractors to pay a $15 per hour minimum wage, and she said she’d push Congress to pass a $15 per hour minimum wage for all workers, including disabled workers and tipped workers.
Warren said she would prohibit states from adopting “right to work” laws, and that she would back “card check” rules strongly opposed by business groups that would make it easier for unions to organize workers by allowing a union to be certified if a majority of employees sign union cards or otherwise offer support.

Won’t be in the MSM. That would undermine their narrative that only one candidate has the plans.
