Kids Wild About Bernie

A few words about the cold call I got yesterday from a Bernie Sanders campaign worker. He clearly was an eager, passionate young man. He did very well for the first few minutes¸ trying his best to change my mind about voting for Hillary. "This woman takes money from big business and is in their pockets," he said. I replied that wasn't a big surprise because ALL politicians fit that description.

I said I intended to vote for Hillary on Tuesday because I want her victory as a payback to the obsessive, ignorant and mis-informed Republicans who grilled her all day about the non-existent Bengazi "scandal." Also I recall Republicans' absurd attempts to impeach Bill Clinton, who went on to great accomplishments, not the least of which was a surplus rather than a deficit.

"I despise Republicans," I said. "That's why I'm a yellow dog Democrat."

"What's that?" he asked.

"I'll vote for a goddamned yellow dog before I vote for a Republican."
