I was sort of absently ruminating about how a guy who bears more than a passing resemblance to my grandfather is managing to fire people up so much. Them I realized.
He’s filling the same ecological niche as Gandalf, Merlin, and Dumbledore.
He’s spent every damn Republican majority at the gates, staff in hand, shouting, “You shall not pass!”
Bernie Sanders *is* Gandalf. No wonder we love him.
This lead to the following…
I printed out a copy to show to my husband, who was having his weekend morning bath in the deep tub.
He was appropriately amused, but asked that I leave the printed copy “over there” so it wouldn’t get wet.
Over there happened to be on the shelf over the toilet.
I said, “‘You shall not pass’ isn’t really the sentiment I want hanging over my toilet. Besides, think about the hashtag… #feelthebern…”
I don’t know that I’ve ever seen my husband laugh that hard at six in the morning.
