My local news just covered Bernie.

(Channel 30 - ABC) This is the first I've seen of any local coverage about Bernie. They talked about his rise in popularity and the NH polls They played a small clip of Bernie in L.A. where he's saying that the millionaires and billionaires can't have it all. (One of my favorites.) It seems the difference, at least locally, is that NH poll. They also mentioned Hillary's email issues.

Things are getting very interesting.

Pictures! (Dial-up Warning)

OK, I've FINALLY had a chance to breath (and sleep - remember sleep?). Here's what I took:


This is waiting in line. I got there 3-1/2 hours early as I wanted to be near the front. As you can see, I was!



One of the 2 local news trucks:



The line at first.



St. Bernies for Bernie: LOL



This is when I first sat down. You can get an idea of how "yuge" this stadium is:











This is a shot of the audience turning on the Flashlight app in their cameras all at the same time:







And after that I became so engrossed in the speakers I forgot to take pictures! LOL! (This is why they don't let me operate a camera.)

Where did Bernie Sanders go after the L.A. event?

Why out to the "overflow," of course, to speak with the people who couldn't get in! I had NO IDEA this went on. Just found this on FB.

That was fucking AWESOME!

A sea of young people OF ALL RACES! Really great, effective speakers including Bernie's new press secretary. They had a young Hispanic woman talking about immigration, they had a nurse talking about today's endorsement by the NNU, several others and, finally, Sarah Silverman talked a little bit and then introduced Bernie.

My ears are still ringing. I've got LOTS of pictures but it will take me awhile to d/l them and post them here. There's a great picture of a St. Bernard wearing a Bernie T-Shirt so it was St. Bernards for Bernie. LOL.

This is L.A. so there was gay, straight, transgendered, you name it, all groups were well represented there. I'm telling you the young people have absolutely taken over this campaign and, speaking as someone who has been doing this forever, I'M TIRED and y'all need to take over now. But I have your back.

ETA: So, I haven't been able to figure out how to get the pictures off the iPhone onto DU yet (new phone) and I'm getting ready to drive back home but AT SOME POINT I will get the pictures up. Probably closer to tomorrow morning.

How Super Delegates Work

This is from 2008 and is mostly about Clinton vs. Obama but the system is the same. (Unfortunately, I couldn't find anything more up-to-date that wasn't someone's poorly-written blog.) Btw, THIS is how the DNC can, literally, steal this election.

There's a reason my FB page has a photo of me when I was 3 years old -- it was the last good photo taken of me. LOL! Alright, so this just got posted on FB and don't say I didn't warn you:

Video of the local new coverage from Wednesday night.

Someone posted this on our Bernie FB page. (Sorry about the commercial at the beginning -- warning, the commercial is LOUD.) You can see the crowd pretty good as well.
