Bernie Sanders is running for the Democratic Party’s nomination for President of the United States. This is probably a good thing. You can contribute to his campaign here.

Mind you, I may still vote for Jill Stein as the Green Party’s candidate in the general election–as I did last round–if Hillary Clinton manages to lie her way into the nomination, but for now with the Democratic Party nomination up for grabs it’s Bernie or bust.

Half donkey, half elephant, and all turkey, Election Day once again looms like a gigantic, querulous vulture over this once great nation . . .

. . . casting its grotesquely contorted shadow like some cosmic, Lovecraftian evil upon the future, it’s fetid, Robber Baron breath wafting over the world, its horrific gobble-gobbling sending shivers of  raw adrenal hysteria across corporate airwaves and cables, the faint hope of the Occupy movement flickers on . . . .

Stiffed” at the London Review of Books‘ website is David Runciman’s take on The Occupy Handbook and the socio-political phenomenon which spawned it. Runciman isn’t particularly hopeful about the whole Occupy thing, and he’s especially disdainful–or at least acutely critical–of the raft of Occupy-inspired slogans based on percentage-points–although some may be effective rallying cries (“We are the 99%!”) and others obnoxious political gaffs (Romney’s “47%” foot-in-mouth affliction), Runciman doesn’t see much that is real in most of the numbers. It’s a pretty thoughtful article and an interesting read, even if I think that the Occupy movement has more resilience than Runciman’s assessment credits it.
