I don't own Adobe Photoshop, but I found a cut out of Bernie and pretty soon he was at my family events.

It was probably more fun for me to put Bernie in all these places than it was for people to see Bernie in all these places. However, someone put Bernie on the Dating Game and that was hilarious!

18. It was a cultural moment. That's why.

You may not understand or find humor. But try and think of a celebrity who makes you laugh or who is memorable for you. Iím sure you will have your own good and considered reasons as to why someone is important.

And I like to think about the mystery (or magic?), of why a moment goes viral and inspires others to imitate it or create their own art. The picture spawned improvisation. Like jazz, it spawned creative expressions as people used the image in their own improvisations. Andy Warhol was masterful at creating viral art.

You may never think itís funny. And thatís okay. But what is accessible to you is appreciation of the magic of something that becomes instantly iconic.

There are pieces of art I do not personally understand, am affected by, or that grate on me ó Bob Dylanís voice, for instance. And while I can learn about (and appreciate) why others are attracted to him, heís not a singer whose songs will ever make it onto one of my iPhone music playlists.

27. I think even people who like the memes will move on to something else

quickly.

I spent a good amount of time on Twitter looking at some of the memes and photoshop. Quite a few made me laugh out loud. Most were meh, and the brands that co-opted the image were boring.

I did like learning about who designed Bernieís parka ó it was from a Burlington, Vermont-based company called Burton. I didnít notice the coat as much as the mittens. But after I looked at the coat and Burton, I want it.

30. It was fashion, dahling, in Bernie's own style.

His mittens were made of reclaimed wool and a gift from a pre-school teacher four years ago. Talk about on-Brand.

And the coat he was sporting was from a local designer in Burlington, Vermont (Burton, $200).

He was as successful at being a fashionista, the more I think about it.

53. The dresses and pantsuits were amazing. Jewel

tones evoked optimism.

The men's black suits were blah. I think most of them were Ralph Lauren. I think of formal menswear as utilitarian more than respectful.

Lady Gaga's dress was avant garde, and I loved it. Garth Brooks' jeans were uninspired.

Bernie was memorable and not disrespectful. He didn't make a show of himself or try to steal the spotlight.

I know you have an army of others who "share your opinion," and now you know mine. It's a fashion fight!

The right wing is the political element in this country that is supposed to dwell on political correctness and sameness. Beyond that, free expression is all-American. Further, do we even know what medical conditions Bernie may have that make him want to sit and have warmer hands than gloves would provide. Maybe he has poor circulation. I did over-hear a casual conversation about how the mittens were a special gift many years ago and that he wears them on special occasions. Haven't fact-checked that. He was wearing nice shoes and looked to be in dress slacks. Perfectly presentable, if curmudgeonly, and besides, he wasn't anywhere close to the center of attention in that audience.

A blood thinner works by slowing or impairing the bloodís ability to clot, Dr. Andersen said, and will not make someone feel colder.

90. If he had shown up dressed to the nines, which would be unusual for him,

you would have complained that he was trying to upstage the inauguration because of course that would have drawn attention too.

Dr Gott says Dr. Anderson is full of shit. So does Harvard.

https://www.health.harvard.edu/heart-health/what-you-should-know-about-the-latest-blood-thinners
So people taking warfarin need frequent blood tests to see if the dose needs to be adjusted. Also, warfarin takes five to seven days to become fully active as an anticoagulant. Finally, it causes other side effects besides bleeding, primarily hair loss, fatigue, and a cold feeling.



https://www.amarillo.com/article/20110821/LIFESTYLE/308219677
Coumadin does carry the side effects of cold intolerance and paresthesias, including feeling cold and chills. I suggest your family member speak with her physician.

Perhaps a change in medication is appropriate.

Other than that, she should wear layers and avoid going out in the cold or being in an air-conditioned building whenever possible.

Because you mention blood thinning as the cause, I would like to take this opportunity to talk about what Coumadin actually does. It is commonly thought that Coumadin and its generic form, warfarin, work by actually thinning the blood.

I have better things to spend my money on. So no help from me.

103. Back in the primaries there were letters released. Maybe you forgot? That's how I know

he and Biden are on blood thinners . As for being cold I know that from experience since I'm on blood thinners myself. What is amazing George is one can almost guarantee if something is posted about Bernie you will comment.

100. Oh but you know she's a private citizen from CA. She must be used to the cold or she doesn't

have to wear designer clothing. At the concert in his tux Tom Hanks was freezing, and that was stupid, I felt so bad for him. He should have asked to borrow Bernie's or Janets coat

Maybe all the positive attention he's getting has something to do with it?

54. I was so happy and relieved watching the inaugural.

Bernie didn't detract from that, for me. If anything, he added to it since I laughed at many of the photoshops of him in the chair afterward.

Others seem to be really salty over his clothes, like he was wearing a garbage bag. It was cold and snowing, and I like his Vermont chic. And I love Vermont (it was where I married my husband before I could marry him anywhere else), and it will always hold a special place in my heart.

12. People are being creative and funny

God only knows we need that in our lives. For those of you who are irritated, just ignore it. The fad will fade.

But you know who REALLY loves the whole thing? Local yarn shops and Etsy - yarn and patterns for mittens as well as the finished product are flying off shelves. Who knew this would be an economic stimulus? 😃

Truth be told Bernie was probably the only warm person in the crowd. Fashionable? No - but most certainly warm.

45. Like Bernie. Don't like Bernie. Whatever.

I don't like everything Sanders says or does and he's my senator. I'll admit I lean more towards Pat Leahy. I guess because he reminds me of my father and one of my grandfathers. Same look. Same politics. Then again, I don't like everything about anyone. But, for the love of God, put your personal animosity aside for a bit and embrace the humor. We've had so little of that the last 4 years. Jebus, folks, enjoy life even though there are those in life you don't like. Ugh.

49. Could people just get over themselves?

Bernie was in the audience, not up front. It's okay how he dressed. It was cold, and he's an old guy, ok? I don't care if you don't like him. I get mad at him sometimes too. I voted for him in the primary in 2016, not last year (I voted for Warren). My son-in-law is a pretty hard-core Democratic Socialist and a Bernie fan and that's okay. I think the memes are funny. If you don't, just go on. That's all.

is that many of the attendees were dressed very much like Bernie - less the cool mittens, of course. But for some reason, only Bernie is being criticized for the outerwear he chose.

59. That picture showed up on our evening news.

Local news in little, old Victoria. Someone in their editing dept put it into a picture of the lighthouse the travelling crew was near, and not even most of the staff was clued it. General hilarity ensued!

Oh...and maybe something else that's kinda good about this story. This local news station was about to shutter its doors several years ago, but was bought by the staff, thanks to some crowdfunding. It's the only employee-owned TV station in North America.

I bet Bernie would like that.
