Why I'm NOT Feeling The Bern

From the Internet
So, Is everybody ready?

Tonight is the first Democratic Debate.  

Despite Donald Trump not being there, and despite what Mr. Trump thinks, I will be watching.

If you've been visiting Sadie's Gathering for any amount of time, you know that I'm for Hillary.

Also, I still won't be a bit surprised if Joe turns up to turn the night into his announcement of joining the race. 

Then there's Bernie Sanders.  Although I agree with much of what I think he clamors on about, I have yet to bear listening to him for any length of time. He always sounds angry.  I saw an article a couple of weeks ago, that expressed that Bernie was not getting any attention or respect from the media.  Honestly think the writer doesn't own a TV or computer.  HE'S THE MEDIA DARLING if ever there was.  Trevor Noah knows what I'm talking about. <-(CLICK FOR HIS HILARIOUS, SPOT ON BIT FROM LAST NIGHT)  
He reminds me of an old angry uncle that rambles on and on and on.  Usually left to vent to himself in the corner at family gatherings.  I mean if push comes to shove, of course I would grin and bear it over any from the other side to be sure.  By the way, did you see that Dr. Carson thinks the Pledge of Allegiance is proof that we were meant to be a Christian nation? Despite that it was written 100+ years after the Revolution.  And that the pledge originally did not include God.  
Nutty ol' bunch over there.  

As for Martin O'Malley, looking forward to hearing what he has to say.  Jim Webb, too, since I don't know him much other than what I've seen on paper. Lincoln Chaffee, curious if he's going to finagle talking about the metric system, or if at any point he'll chat bout his experience with the GOP up until 8 years ago; then Independent; then ending with Democrat for the last two years.  Yes, Hillary used to be with the Republican Party too.  However, that was 1968 and before; she was 20-21, and frankly I doubt if I'm alone in thinking the Republican Party of 1968 and 2015 are two very different political animals. 

I hear the Harvard professor, Lawrence Lessig, will be sitting in with MSNBC to share his thoughts on the evening. 

Should be an interesting meeting of the minds.

Get your popcorn and Milk Duds ready!

More politics?  Got plenty, here's a few...
