Kendrick Lamar

I had to stand up and applaud all by myself in my living room. I hardly ever do that.
Alabama shakes got me up also. All hail Brittany, ruler of the world.

Go get 'em Hillary

The GOP didn't wait for the body to be cold and tried to bully Obama. They opened the door and Hillary slammed it shut on Mitch.

Bernie is at best a mediocre career politician

What the heck has he done for decades and why pick now to stick his neck out? I think he figure since the worse that can happen is he still winds up with pension and healthcare if he loses, why not run for president. He's kept a low profile in public office for decades, nice way to keep his job because his other career choice was folk singer.

Bernie mistaking anger for passion.

Bernie strikes me as being very cold and detached. Sure he's been yelling the same thing over and over for years, but you don't hear any kind of empathy in his speeches. He only connects with people who are angry already.

Bernie looks worn out and he's babbling

I saw a clip of him in NH, it was like he lost his train of thought and then something snapped back on and he yelled wall street.

The only thing I find amusing about Bloomberg is

He has way more money than trump and he's not had all those pesky financial problems like trump has. He could very easily hit trump in his ego.

Hillary must have done well

Judging by the outrage of some Bernie supporters™. They only get this way when no one is being fair to Bernie. No one.

Sarah is claiming her son has ptsd

Wasn't he the one who had problems before he enlisted?

Sincere question about Bernie, god help me, I'm going into gd.

I am going to start off saying I support HRC. I could easily vote for Bernie in the GE. I have nothing against him but think Hillary might be able to get more done and I believe she will not be distracted from women's issues. Otoh I appreciate Bernie has made income inequality a cornerstone of his campaign and agree it is not to be dismissed.
I am just wondering what you all expect from Bernie. I think he's going to get opposition like no one has seen yet and I wonder if he is willing to compromise and if he is, will there be a backlash from dems against him like Obama got. I think Obama got some big things done but I also think because I remember the blue dogs being nearly as intractable as the GOP he got jammed up before he got rolling.
So I quess I'm asking do you expect Bernie to push for single payer even if there is no chance of Congress passing it in hopes that by the midterm more progressives get elected or would you accept that he make changes to the aca until he can get single payer?
I don't see enough of a change coming to Congress in this election because one of the failings of the dem party is a lack of support on the local.level to bring up young progressive leadership. They just don't leap into congressional seats.
