  1. Biden Finds Bernie’s Donors Elusive [Click] Small wonder, given how he has been kissing up to corporate bagmen and bundlers in public. To quote Molly Ivins, “You gotta dance with who brung you.” As if more were needed, here’s a related story from Axios:

    1. I intend to donate to Biden's general election campaign fund. But that fund won't come into existence until after the convention. It's really a technical niggle, but it is symbolically important to me.

  3. https://www.yahoo.com/news/joe-biden-tells-popular-radio-host-you-aint-black-if-considering-voting-for-trump-154645383.html

    "After an aide interrupted the interview to say that the former vice president was running short on time, Charlamagne Tha God asked that Biden pay the studio a visit the next time he’s in New York.

    “It’s a long way until November,” he said. “We’ve got more questions.”

    “You’ve got more questions?” Biden replied. “Well, I tell you what, if you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.”

    Facepalm. Biden is stuck so far in the past he doesn't even know what year it is. He has always been a racist to the bone - covers it most of the time - but it peeks out in ugly ways like his idiot comment "than you ain't black" said by the whitest white man of all.

    2. Yes, all my money - such as it is - is going to Senate and Congressional candidates who are working to unseat Republicans I particularly loathe. Mitch McConnell, Susan Collins, and their ilk.
