Sanders Makes Pollsters Feel The Bern!

Gotta love it!

The Return of the Modern Philosopher

Poll this! Bernie Sanders stuns Hillary Clinton in the Michigan Presidential Primary despite polls predicting he'd lose by a wide margin!Feel the Bern!

I hope and pray, Modern Philosophers, that Bernie Sanders was thinking those three words last night as he watched the results of the Michigan Democratic Primary slowly roll in over the course of the evening.

Sanders pulled off a stunning upset in the primary after polls repeatedly showed his opponent, Hillary Clinton, to have a massive lead in the state.

His win was so unexpected that he abandoned his Michigan campaign headquarters before the polls closed.

All night long, CNN cut to the poor reporter they’d assigned to cover things live from the abandoned Sanders base.  Every time the camera cut to her, she’d be all alone in a dark, empty room talking about how Bernie’s supporters might have felt had they stuck around to watch and celebrate the results.

Friday Fictioneers – Not Again!

FF - Trash Bin

“What is that ugly thing?” Betty asked as she slipped into the passenger seat..

“Dave had it when we met and he insists it has special powers,” Jackie said with a sigh. “Every time I throw it away, Dave “rescues” it and pitches a fit. This time I’m going to throw it away where he won’t find it.”

Jackie pulled to the curb, picked up the artifact and dropped it into a trash bin. Brushing her hands on her jeans, she got behind the wheel again and drove away.

She didn’t hear the voice issuing from the trash bin. “Damn! Not again!”

Three Day Quote Challenge – Day Three

Deb at OnceUponaHotFlash has selected me for a Three Day Quote Challenge. Deb is a new follower I am enjoying following in return. You might want to visit her if you don’t already.

Thank you, Deb, and I look forward to getting better acquainted with you—between the hot flashes.

These are the rules of the challenge:

  • Thank the person who nominated you.
  • Post a quote for 3 consecutive days
  • Nominate 3 bloggers each day

Almost instantly upon being challenged I knew what my “theme” would be: curiosity. I was born with an incessant curiosity. The good thing about that is I’m constantly learning new things. The drawback is spending too many hours in a chair in front of the computer feeding my curiosity. Curiosity in itself is not a bad thing; it is what wards off ignorance. For my third and last quote I give you the one that really intrigued me, as much for the quote as for the image of Albert Einstein with an electric guitar. I have loved this quote since I first read it months ago because it is an accurate description for me and my curiosity. However, but the creator of the meme incorrectly put “talents“.
