    •  Wow! (6+ / 0-)

      I hadn't heard about Bernie.  So would he run as an Independent?

      If so, are we allowed to talk about it on dkos?  If he's running against a Democrat, it will be off limits.  LOL.

        against him right now so far as I know...so no ban. What tomorrow will bring...who knows. Hard to see the corporate blockheads who run our party letting him in, but who knows. Everything that ever happened was impossible until it happened.

        Hell, his just considering it is setting hair on fire already.

        Says "probably Independent." That could sure split the Democratic vote.

        A primary with him in it would be interesting.

        support for Bernie Sanders if he runs as an Independent.  Who was the mom of the soldier that got killed and set up an encampment outside of the Bush ranch?  Hell, they ran her off when she talked about running as an I.  

        Deadhead left a link in Ray's Thom Hartmann diary to a help desk thread where they were discussing the merits of HRs.   Among the tidbits was the factoid that one of our dearest kossacks has 253 HRs.

          Almost everyone was either too timid to speak out, or rah-rah-go-go about the war themselves, until she came along.

          Used her, then threw her under the bus, folks did.

          In hindsight, it seems most of the opposition to Bush's policies was tactical rather than principled.

            What they did to her was pretty nasty.   She got the Ted Rall, Jane Hamsher, David Sirota, Greg Pallast, and Cenk Uygur treatment.   Once upon a time, they used to do it to OPOL.   Some of us stuck up for him, and we managed to get it stopped.
