Perhaps you should re-think your breakfast choices

If Hillary is the nominee, and she most likely will be, her best bet would be to chose Bernie as her VP.

Actually most specialists in the MD field are kind of out there. The Neurologists who worked with both of my parents were wayyy out there. Both of them...and yet they are both very brilliant minds and i had total trust in them. I spoke to my Doc about this and he just kind of laughed and agreed with me.

I'm a little worried that she'll do something outlandish like choose Bloomberg as her VP.

Agreed on Hilary picking Bernie. They've got almost no beef, because Bernie's campaign refuses to smear anything about Hilary directly, aside from picking on her GS speaker fees -- which is fair given that Sanders main running point is campaign finance reform. He isn't attacking Clinton so much over it as he is saying "hey look, I don't do that." Granted, he might take a swing if he has to.

Hillary won't pick Bernie or give him a cabinet post. Bernie would be a great pick to help her lose.

2016 US Presidential Election Thread Part V

If anyone read my earlier post from my district representative's email... we've got another golden one in the inbox:

Quote:
Dear Christopher,

In the first season of the fascinating TV show called “The Wire,” two rival drug dealers go after each other. One shoots at another, at close range, with a sawed-off shotgun. And misses. Leading to this immortal line:

“You come at the King, you best not miss.”

The D.C. Establishment is coming after us. And they are missing. Too bad – for them.

The corporate shills who have insinuated themselves into positions of power in the unDemocratic Party in Washington have become utterly desperate. After we exposed their betrayal by opening up the undemocratic superdelegate process to We, the People, they’ve come after me, my family, and my staff, with ludicrous and blatantly false attacks.

There is a term in politics called “oppo dump.” You come up with every “opposition research” smear you can think of, and then you dump it (through co-conspirators in media) a few days before the election, hoping to confuse the voters.

But here, the Democratic politburo is S.O.L. We’re winning, and we’re winning by nine points. So now, more than six months before even the primary, they “dump” all their “oppo,” all their imaginary crap. Think of it as premature evacuation.

Just to be clear, I am not a cannibal. Nor am I a necrophiliac. And frankly, these are no more fanciful than their actual smears against me.

Barack Obama was not born in Kenya. Hillary Clinton did not kill Vince Foster. Bernie Sanders does not hold an Israeli passport. And it is so, so pathetic that the corrupt, inept bureaucrats who call themselves our “leaders” have to stoop so low as to make the same kind of baseless smirches against me.

(Is “smirches” a word? Well, it is now.)

Send an urgent contribution to my campaign today, to help me fight back against the lies and the dirty liars who tell them, in the unDemocratic Party Establishment.

###(These are button-links in the email)###
CHIP IN $10

CHIP IN $25

CHIP IN $50

CHIP IN $100

CHIP IN $250

Just today, they tried to put it out there that I’m not a “real” progressive.

Excuse you?

I’m fighting a political life-and-death struggle against a Democratic Party D.C. Establishment that has betrayed progressive principles over and over and over again, over my very loud objection. (No wonder they don’t love me.) Look at what they’ve done:

The Democratic Establishment killed the public option.
The Democratic Establishment refused to punish the banksters.
The Democratic Establishment wasted billions of dollars on bailouts.
The Democratic Establishment keeps pushing for Social Security benefit cuts.
The Democratic Establishment opposes Medicare for All.
The Democratic Establishment implemented huge tax cuts for multinational corporations.
The Democratic Establishment has shipped millions of jobs overseas.
The Democratic Establishment has taxed union benefits, and refused to put EFCA up to a Senate vote.
The Democratic Establishment has collaborated in the destruction of affirmative action.
And that’s just off the top of my head.

Look at their appalling sell-out record. Then look back at mine. You’ll see a Congressman who not only cares about working people, but gets good things done for them. Who actually delivers for progressives, and for our progressive principles of justice, equality and peace.

And them? Liars, losers, fakers and sellouts.

Make your contribution now. We can’t tolerate another victory by the unDemocratic Party Establishment against a real progressive like me. We can’t forgive them for what they’ve done, but winning is the best revenge. Donate now.

You DESERVE a Senator with Guts. And I’m going to give that to you -- whether they like it or not.

Courage,

Alan Grayson

“Eat my shorts.”

I feel like it's ultimately better to keep Bernie in senate so that he can do actual work. just like Elizabeth Warren should stay in senate rather than being part of executive branch.

I mean, come on. In a campaign emailing list he

1. Makes a poop joke
2. Declares he's not a necrophiliac
3. Openly defines a new word
4. Calls his party "liars, losers, fakers, and sellouts"
5. Signs off his email with "courage"
6. Quotes "eat my shorts" from Bart Simpson below his name
