Let’s Hear It for Bernie Shave!

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.)”


Now man exploits

His fellow man.

Just the reverse

Is what we plan!


Lenin smiles and Stalin puckers.

Socialism is for suckers.


College tuition should be free.

Won’t be paid by you or me.

But this one have to be my favorite so far:

Old Spice, Axe, Secret, and Dove?

Just use patchouli

And share the love.
