So I’m trying to finish writing a book in the next 48 hours, but I can’t help but keep up with things here, and it hit me this morning that what this campaign needs is . . . Bernie Shave roadside signs! Yes, this reference dates us better than tree rings, but given that Bernienomics is a nostalgia for Soviet-era economic authoritarianism, why not some Cold War era signage to go with it.
I put out a bleg on Twitter, and have some early entries:
“Seize wealth and power
From those patricians!
(And give it to
Us politicians.)” #BernieShave
Now man exploits
His fellow man.
Just the reverse
Is what we plan! #BernieShave
Lenin smiles and Stalin puckers.
Socialism is for suckers. #BernieShave
College tuition should be free.
Won’t be paid by you or me. #BernieShave
But this one have to be my favorite so far:
Old Spice, Axe, Secret, and Dove?
Just use patchouli
And share the love. #BernieShave
