Go, Hillary! We love you!

14. Do you not remember 1994?

Now here is an "awful legacy"...

Forty years of Democratic dominance in the U.S. Congress came to a stunning end on November 8, when the Republican Party rode a tidal wave of anti-incumbent sentiment to victory in the midterm elections. The Republicans took control of both houses of Congress for the first time since 1954 as voters delivered a strong rejection of Pres. Bill Clinton and his policies. The Republicans picked up a net gain of 53 seats in the House of Representatives and 7 in the Senate. The last time such carnage had been seen in Congress was in 1958, when Republicans lost 48 House and 13 Senate seats. Moreover, the Republicans won a majority of congressional seats from the South for the first time since the Civil War.

Bernie is helping down ticket Dems by not being a person that many on this country will crawl over broken glass if necessary to vote against.

8. I agree, these campaigns should stop buying commercials.

 

Millions, I tell you.

On the other hand, that protest at the Clooney fundraiser taught them all about how to get media for almost free. Brilliant PR!

10. Then what would throwing enormous amounts of money indicate?

Might it be enormous privilege, of the enormously white and enormously wealthy? Against which throwing singles would be insignificant?

12. Is taking money from white, wealthy, privileged investors a dead give away of corruption?

 

Disdain for $1 donations? Hubris? An indication that she's no longer "dead broke?"

“it’s exciting to be, in effect, protesting”

18. that's the first thought that came to my mind

 

those who are supposedly struggling to make ends meet, decide that symbolism is more important than feeding the family? Of course not, these were not those struggling that are flinging money to the wind.

25. Is that what I said? Is that what you read? Sad, sad day for school teachers everywhere.

 

$1000 would buy a lot of families a lot of meals. I think that symbolism of feeding the hungry may have been a little more well received.

27. WRONG. It's a 99% criticism of the 1%'s sold-out candidate.

 

Most of us can throw a couple of dollars at her on her way to the $$$ fundraising dinners. Get enough of us lined up, and there will quite a few dollar bills flying around that big SUV caravan.

It makes a statement. A necessary statement.

So ... get on with your defense of the 1%.

29. How can anyone who takes corporate money ever FIGHT privilege?

 

You're either in the suites, or the streets.

It's not possible to represent the rich and the poor at the same time.
