How hot was it in Philadelphia this week?
Still feeling the Bern. Hundreds of Sanders’ supporters refused to accept Hillary Clinton as their candidate, at least for now. Some said they would vote for the Green Party’s Jill Stein; a few others talked of Libertarian Gary Johnson.
Catching up with old friends: I knew I’d seen these guys before. They lugged their signs, bullhorn and bellicose Christianity all the way from Cleveland to tell all the sinners that it’s even hotter in hell than in it is Philadelphia.
I was confused why Zach from Philadelphia was standing with them. “No. I’m not with these people. I just want to add some levity. Everyone should lighten up.” Nobody seemed to mind.
Speaking of levity, 70,000 protesters came to Washington to levitate the Pentagon in 1967, but you have to start somewhere.
Jesus is angry. Bernie is angry. But hey, can’t we just get along?
Just a touch more lavender and you’re good to go.
“We don’t want to vote ‘the lesser of two evils.’ We need to vote our conscience.”
Paul Tillson had come from Raymond, Maine: “The presidential election almost doesn’t matter. We need to build from the local level up.”
You’re the candidate of what party?
