Ben Brown commented on the post, Bernie has a long and treacherous road to reach 2,000 delegates 1 week, 6 days ago
I wondered the same thing. There are going to be a lot of candidates that only pick up a few delegates here and there. Butti being one of them. All of his opponents combined might keep him from an outright win, but none of them will have many each. So if Bernie is near 2000 and any. one of his opponents that is sitting on 50-100 delegates…[Read more]
For anyone that doesn’t follow Lambert at NC, his daily “water cooler” has some great polling charts. Aggregating and showing long trends. Find the site ‘Naked Capitalism’ and at the top click on a weekday ‘water cooler’. Also, the best comment section of any website I have ever been to.
As a stand up comedian Joe has on a lot of guests who are stand up comedians. Many comedians make their money by being bold and shocking. He had Clay on recently. Clay’s work is some of the most shocking and offensive- even if you like him, and they were talking about how people confuse their “act” with who they are as real people. Joe’s guest the…[Read more]
A lot of positive to see in the polls. My take: considering that last week looked like the most challenging for the “US” campaign (Warren flap, Biden attacking Bernie with “doctoring” accusations, Bernie putting distance between himself and Zephyrs Op ed) it is very positive that Bernie did not lose any ground. And in fact had solid gains. He is…[Read more]
I don’t think it is a question of whether a Sanders administration would employ them, it is a question of whether there would still be room for them in the party. And whether they could find employment there. This will be a serious question and something Bernie will need to deal with. How can party stalwarts expect to be treated once Bernie takes…[Read more]
I think what RG is getting at, and I agree with, is that concern trolls are going to have to be in a subservient position. Concern trolls and incrementalists and run of the mill milque toast thinkers. And I agree on that. Big bold thinkers who are willing to act bravely will get the top spots. AOC types will headline. And Pelosi and friends need…[Read more]
Subir wins the internet! Great comeback.
One of the upsides of ‘Rising’ “allowing guests to shill” is at least they allow Bernies spokespeople that opportunity as well. When they allow Bernies guy with the southern accent and the cowboy hat on to speak he has the opportunity to exude a level of confidence and enthusiasm that he can’t express on other outlets where he might know that he…[Read more]
united with media that is largely supportive of the movement,
united with people who were given interesting names at birth,
united with people who were given other interesting attributes at birth.
united with thought leaders of the broader Left.
Fighting concern trolling wherever it may happen.
Mods should just remove this entire…[Read more]
And by the way, your opening statement of your last post “if you choose to be honest” is usually followed by a statement like:
“well, there are more POC in prison than whites”, or
“well, they were called savages for a reason”, or
well, you think about it. Racist and bigoted comments are always backed up by statements that say in essence, “well,…[Read more]
I am not condemning an entire community. I am condemning just two of you. Just to be clear.
Writing a “concern trolling” thread about Krystal when concern trolling about Bernie is one of the biggest hurdles we have to overcome to advance our agenda is just wrong.
You are engaging in a behavior that must be ended for us to have success.
I guess you missed orlbucfan post saying that Krystal’s name sounds like a stage name. This site has used clips from her program repeatedly to advance the “US” agenda. A large portion of Bernies message is about expanding our coalition. It is the essence of the “its not me, it’s us” statement. I have followed this site for some time now and always…[Read more]
I can’t even tell you how disgusted I am with this post. Krystal (here real name, given by her parents, no need to mock that) has done more than nearly any other media person not directly working for/with Bernie to elevate his views and his candidacy. In fact she has so tirelessly pushed Bernies agenda that I rather assumed that she was covertly…[Read more]
