After the David Duke/KKK stuff, in had begun to think that, no, he's just a bigoted egomaniac asshole and this may have started as a lark but now he's serious.

But when I saw the picture of all those whiten people with their right hand raised, I started to come back to the performance art idea.

Or maybe it's both? Who can say? Does he even know anymore?

And then Bernie puts his foot in his mouth in his answer, saying in part that white folks don't understand poverty.

LOLOLOLOLOLOL

Look, Bern. White privilege is a real thing and gold star for you for acknowledging it. But DUDE. I'm sure a lot of white folk, including in your own state of Vermont, would like to have a word with you about that.

I can tell Bernie isn't so used to these kinds of debates. and kinda packing as many points as he could, which he didn't enough, I think.

Ugh, fuck. CNN already calling the "excuse me, I'm talking" comment as a sexist tone.

Donald Trump can say that to Ted Cruz in the exact same fashion, and it's funny...? And now Sanders is sexist? Give me a break.

If there is a correct answer to the question, I think for most white people it would be a reluctance to admonish friends and family who say racist things in casual conversation.

"You know, Anderson, I'd say that the most racist thing I unknowingly do sometimes is scorn the black fellow sitting at the front of the bus. Just a habit."

As an undecided voter between Hilary and Bernie, I'm leaning more and more towards Hilary after last night's debate. My issue with Bernie is that he talks about how everything is wrong but I really don't have a concrete vision into the "how he's going to fix it."

Perhaps he's a method actor. Donald Day Lewis.

I feel like Bernie needs to emphasize that his attacks on money in politics would fix plethora of issues. that must be his real aim and he' hasn't really expressed it well in these debates, I find.

Yeah, and I admittedly haven't had a ton of time to research Bernie's actual "plan" because work and life have been very busy so I've actually had to rely on the debates and headlines. And the problem I have with Bernie as a casual undecided voter is that other than the fact that Bernie is great at spewing out all the problems with corporate greed and other issues, I guess I haven't seen anything that sticks out to me that screams "wow. He's actually going to get things done in Washington."

See? He's already creating jobs, the mental health industry will skyrocket. The sane will all be suffering from anxiety and his minions will eventually all fall into depression once they realize what they've done to this country.
