2016 election

I, Virginia Bergman, pledge not to vote for a male presidential candidate in 2016 just because he's male.

Hey Bernie, Anger is not a plan!

Bernie should smile more and stop shouting.
Hi Katalusis friends, it's a wintry March day up here in the Northland; the Twin Cities metro is expecting a couple inches of the white stuff in the next several hours with tons more of the heart attack variety south of us - please be careful when you're shoveling your sidewalk.

In the meantime, I doubt that snow is on the minds of Bernie and Hillary this afternoon. I confess that although I consider myself a liberal in good standing, I'm not familiar with the Rolling Stone Magazine, which I gather is a bit left-leaning. Nevertheless, I followed a titillating link just now to read the Rolling Stone's reasons for endorsing Hillary over Bernie; I mean, generally speaking Hillary is the realist in the Democratic Primary race, and Bernie is the idealist. You'd expect Bernie to attract the young folks and readers of mags like the Rolling Stone, right? Maybe not...Here's the link to Rolling Stone's endorsement by its publisher, Jann S. Wenner.

“This is not the time in history for a ‘protest vote,’” publisher Jann S. Wenner writes
Rolling Stone has endorsed Hillary Clinton for president and the magazine’s publisher, Jann S. Wenner, explained why in a column that starts off with effusive praise for her rival, Sen. Bernie Sanders.

Rolling Stone has endorsed Hillary Clinton for president and the magazine’s publisher, Jann S. Wenner, explained why in a column that starts off with effusive praise for her rival, Sen. Bernie Sanders.
“It’s hard not to love Bernie Sanders. He has proved to be a gifted and eloquent politician. He has articulated the raw and deep anger about the damage the big banks did to the economy and to so many people’s lives.” Wenner wrote. “My heart is with him.”
Despite the clear love for Sanders, the Rolling Stone publisher concluded, “It is not enough to be a candidate of anger. Anger is not a plan; it is not a reason to wield power; it is not a reason for hope.”

  1. DailyPUMA here. Apparently when an author writes a column and then deletes it, the headline stays up on DailyPUMA until the next article comes out. Just thought you should know.
