“Bernie Schools the Iowa Press,” huh?

Funniest headline in a bit.

I grabbed it from a Daily Kos “recommended” diary.   Important to note that Daily Kos essays  are usually great places to get well-written, well sourced, citizen-born news magazine essays.  If you keep active with the Daily Kos then you’re as in-the-know as anyone skipping around the web.  The diarists are often people with firsthand relevant information:  people who can be quoted on top of their just being good regurgitators of original stories.   If you see a diary by “One Pissed Off Liberal” while you’re there,  you don’t have a quotable source, necessarily, but you definitely have a well-established writer and content provider.

Yesterday, however, One Pissed Off Liberal was one unintentionaly funny liberal.  The Pissed-Off One has delved into the Bernie hive and intended to add to the swarm of diaries about Sanders the “raw idealism or bust” kids flood social media with.  This one didn’t exactly present a Sanders that shows much promise of being competitive.mad bernie schools press

When you’re  campaigning in Iowa, “schooling the press” with a famously self-righteous bullhorn of an attitude isn’t the wisest way to go about winning a party’s nomination.

I do jest.  This diary was actually another after another and then a predictable nother essay by part of the “son-of-Occupy Wall Street” kind of “organic grassroots” the Sanders campaign is employing.  Crowd-sourcing public relations is such a great Democratic strategy if the crowd doesn’t get infested with Right wing trolls, such as happened to Occupy movement and Karl Rove’s America Rising has done with Bernie’s, unfortunately.  Sometimes, the “amateurity” thuds in a wake of giggles.

This story was actually just a video of Sanders stumping the same Sanders / Clinton / Obama platform war cries that color every angry Bernie speech.

Ho Humagain.

About johnnysdoe

I'm JSD. John. Here, that means Johnny S. Doe. Whatever. We all have jobs and life that makes being neon us on a billboard a liability to people around us / to ourselves. I can yap as JSD and not cause hell and a handful of headaches. I’d never put a soul in a tough spot, but, I can write about some shadowy dots that might help make a more complete pic of how reality jenga’s itself together behind all the frames you see while you’re armchairing about it. For all intents and purpose, outside that function, I’m just John. I work seamlessly behind the seams of the political process you do or don’t take part in. I’m not going to get into much of the about me here. I write for fun at Magnana Mouse Citizen Media with a couple other contributors. Nate Silver says there's a 99.9989 percent chance this will be the only place you will ever see me. If you actually know me, you’d pass out in shock realizing this was me flaunting around here. So, you won’t. That’s all. Now, you, back to work.
