With the one pix, the music, Power to the people, was just GREAT to usher Bernie in. Probably everyone else has heard it, but it was new to me. I did sign up for a gathering in Raleigh on April 27, and it was confirmed to be at Isaac Hunter’s Tavern. Will hope for better weather than the serious downpours on Good Friday.


The New Yorker has a (relatively) good recap of Bernie’s swing thru the Midwest.

I have to highlight this tho:

In 2016, Sanders, in some ways, was caught short by his own success, prompting headlines like “Bernie Sanders Never Thought It Would Get This Far.” But his current campaign, with its robust staff, its fund-raising, and its fleshed-out foreign-policy platform, has been built for a front-runner. “There’s a three-out-of-four chance we are not the nominee,” Faiz Shakir, Sanders’s campaign manager, recently told The Atlantic, “but that one-in-four chance is better than anyone else in the field.” Yet it’s possible to imagine this moment as the high point for Sanders. His poll numbers, as Nate Silver has pointed out, are going in the wrong direction.Joe Biden, who has been leading in many of the polls, looks ready to join the race. Parts of the Democratic establishment—wealthy donors, big think tanks, activists—are starting to talk about how to blunt Sanders’s momentum. At Sanders events, his supporters were already worried about their candidate getting boxed out. The prospect of going into the Democratic National Convention without a clear winner in the delegate count has both sides nervous.

Sure, Kos er Nate. Stick to stats not punditry.



Huff post has a nonsense piece critical of M4A. https://www.huffpost.com/entry/bernie-sanders-medicare-for-all-hospitals_n_5cb655b2e4b082aab08dd7bf

But Sanders and his allies rarely mention that Medicare for All would also restrict the flow of money into the rest of the health care industry, including the parts that aren’t as easy to demonize in speeches.

At the top of that list are hospitals, which alone account for roughly one-third of the nation’s health care spending. No other sector, not even pharmaceuticals, rivals it. Under the Medicare for All proposals from Sanders as well as some other potential reforms getting attention these days, the federal government would limit payments to hospitals, quite possibly reducing their incomes significantly.

Considering how small hospitals in red states are screaming for Medicaid expansion, I think the hospitals will be just fine.

More establishment nonsense The NY Times: Should a White Man Be the Face of the Democratic Party in 2020?


Geez, Times, the establishment is fine with Mayor Pete & last I looked he’s a white male.

The matter of What To Do About Bernie and the larger imperative of party unity has, for example, hovered over a series of previously undisclosed Democratic dinners in New York and Washington organized by the longtime party financier Bernard Schwartz. The gatherings have included scores from the moderate or center-left wing of the party, including Speaker Nancy Pelosi of California; Senator Chuck Schumer of New York, the minority leader; former Gov. Terry McAuliffe of Virginia; Mayor Pete Buttigieg of South Bend, Ind., himself a presidential candidate; and the president of the Center for American Progress, Neera Tanden.


Besides as someone (sorry, I don’t have the source) has already written, the “white male” accusation erases Bernie’s Jewishness.

When it was becoming clear that Richard Nixon would need to be held to account for the high crimes and misdemeanors of the Watergate era—including his many obstructions of justice—the youngest and newest members of Congress stepped up. Texas Democrat Barbara Jordan, a voting-rights advocate who had been elected to the House in 1972 at the age of 36, joined the Judiciary Committee and in 1974 challenged her colleagues to recognize that “If the impeachment provision in the Constitution of the United States will not reach the offenses charged here, then perhaps that 18th-century Constitution should be abandoned to a 20th-century paper shredder!”


She is one of my political heroes!! This is one of the reasons why. She was a true public servant/stateswoman. Barbara did AAs, women, and Texans (including the stupes) proud. T and R, LD!! Got your note about Ft. Worth. Lucky dog!
