Why do you think very little has gotten done that does not have the Corporate/Wall St. Seal of Approval?

And why do you think the GOP continues to drive the agenda, despite their numerous screw ups?

They broke away to announce he won OR.

Now, guess what? They're showing scenes from his rally while the commentators commentate.....

was a (finger quotations here) "fringe candidacy". "Thanks to the youuuuuge support of young people" etc. etc. "over umpteen million individual donations. The average donation being?dramatic pause here with hand cupped to ear) "how much?" Crowd shouts "$27".

Lather, rinse, repeat.

Not the stuff designed to generate decent ratings.

It's kind of boring to me, because I've heard it several times.

But most candidates have stump speeches that they endlessly repeat.

Or is it supposed to be castor oil?

I must admit I had a chance to see him but passed, because I've heard it, and didn't feel like standing in line for three hours.

But I've become a lazy bastid. Were I a little younger I'd a been excited for the chance to see him.

I'm not catholic but I attended the Jubileum at the Vatican in Rome in 2000. Pope Paul addressed the masses assembled in the outdoors. I had a wonderful tingly sensation run through me as I stood there among the faithful. I doubt if Bernie could bring it to that level, but it would be interesting to see what the fuss is all about.

To be fair though, MSNBC showed a fair amount of Bernie's Carson, CA rally tonight before breaking away to announce that they were projecting Bernie as the winner in Oregon.

But basically you are right. I only watch MSNBC anymore just to see how biased their coverage and the commentators are. Rachel and Chris Matthews sounded like their heads were going to explode tonight. Matthews was red-faced with anger toward Bernie for not pulling the plug.

Why? Because exactly like you said, they know they have a weak candidate. If Hillary were a strong candidate, they wouldn't be getting their panties in a bunch like they are.
