Feel The Bern?

Outright declared Socialist Bernie Sanders running rings around beleaguered liar Hillary? If the Dems have truly become Progressives - communists - then who better to lead them (Gus Hall is long gone)?

Bernie-Mania !!

PORTLAND, Maine — Bernie-mania swept through here last night, as more than 7,500 screaming, sign-waving supporters packed a downtown arena — many lining up hours early — for surging Vermont U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders.

The outpouring came as a Bay State Democratic congressman warned one-time sure-shot Hillary Clinton has an “excitement problem” in the Democratic race for the White House.

“In case you didn’t notice, this is a big turnout,” Sanders told the cheering crowd at Cross Insurance Arena. “From Maine to California — we have friends from Alaska and Hawaii as well — the American people understand that establishment politics and establishment economics is not working for America.”

The rally started 20 minutes late so the people stuck in line outside could filter in, and nearly every seat was filled. Some supporters waved homemade signs, including one that read “#Bern Baby Bern” and “Feel the Bern.”

“We love you,” one woman shouted toward the end of Sanders’ speech.

Thousands more watched a YouTube live stream of the rally on the campaign’s website.

“Hillary is not bad. It’s just, we all know she is having an excitement problem. We all know that. It’s not a secret,”

An excitement problem. And an honesty problem. And an image problem, poor little elitist multi-millionaire “woman of the people” that she is. With the personality of a rabid wharf rat, and half the charm.

U.S. Rep. Michael E. Capuano said in a Boston Herald Radio interview yesterday. “Everybody wants to fall in love with the perfect candidate. Everybody wants that. So do I. Who doesn’t?”

Capuano said it’s still a “longshot” that Sanders could knock off Clinton, but admitted the Vermont senator’s popularity is hard to ignore.

“Especially if you share a fair number of his values, he’s a pretty exciting guy,” said Capuano. “He’s a street fighter. He’s been a real mayor. He’s always been on the outside looking in as far as establishment politics goes. So I think on some levels, he’s lighting it up pretty good.”

Sanders drew nearly 10,000 people at a rally in Wisconsin last week and polls have shown him closing the gap with Clinton, once seen as the automatic Democratic nominee.

The Vermont senator’s supporters, who lined up as early as 3 1⁄2 hours ahead of time, touted his straight-shooting middle-class pitch and labeled Clinton as out of touch.

“I don’t think she’s my voice anymore — I was hoping she would be,” said Rich Stafford of Salem, Mass. “She’s just too tied into corporate America, too tied in with the banking system, millionaires and billionaires. Her husband’s getting $500,000 to give a speech. How many Americans are in that category?”

John Wibby of South Portland said even if Clinton starts talking about the progressive issues Sanders has been championing, he can’t trust her.

“She seems really not that genuine to me,” said Wibby. “She seems to flip-flop a lot on the issues.”

7500 people in a city of 66,000 turned up to hear him speak.

Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
