    Bernie was sincere?

    But I still know fundraising when I see it. I just wish he'd ask for money rather than touting an "urgent" online petition to get your email, then emailing asking for money. It just seems a little sketchy...

    You seem a little "sketchy" to me.

      story. :-)

      First off, I don't think this is Bernie Sanders doing the posting, so this doesn't have anything to do with his sincerity. This is authored by his campaign staff, or whatever the "Friends of Bernie Sanders" group is. I think his campaign staff made this post for a few reasons, the first of which is to increase the number of emails on their distribution list. If they really cared about the petition, there would be an opt-out of signing up for the distribution list. But there isn't.

      The obvious answers are wrong. That's why we aren't doing them already.
