Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

Sen. Bernie Sanders was attacked by a glass shower door on Friday morning and received seven stitches, his campaign announced. But the 2020 candidate was given a "clean bill of health" and will attend all of his previously scheduled campaign events over the next couple days.

Arianna Jones, a Sanders spokeswoman, said "out of precaution, he went to a walk-in clinic" to have the cut checked out. "The senator has proceeded with all of his scheduled events -- joining a group of approximately 20 local clergy for breakfast this morning -- and looks forward to joining a roundtable with South Carolinians this afternoon to discuss how we can provide high quality affordable health care for all," she added, "especially when you are being oppressed by Mr. Clean."

Seriously though, it looks like a drunk buddy put that bandage on his head after a bachelor party.

You have to try to look that sad and disheveled.

So this story came from 1 book but according to this book Bernie Sanders was never a member of this commune
he was visiting it for 3 days which was the time he was allotted to visit

"This is according to the forthcoming book We Are As Gods by Kate Daloz, which tells the story of Myrtle Hill Farm, a commune in northeast Vermont that Sanders visited in 1971. Sanders had been visiting the commune while researching an article on "natural childbirth," which appeared in the newsletter he edited for the Liberty Union Party."

According to the book he asked a lot of questions to lots of people and apparently according to this author disturb their working time and was asked to leave after the allotted 3 days.

Or the author of the book who wrote about it:

When presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders was young and still had all his hair, he was kicked out of a hippie commune in Vermont in 1971 because he was "sitting around and talking" politics instead of working, according to a new book that's mostly about the kids who did all the working.

"We Are As Gods: Back to the Land in the 1970s on the Quest for a New America," by Kate Daloz, scheduled to be released April 26. Bernie Sanders, 30, came to Myrtle Hill in the summer of 1971, at about the same time he became active in the socialist Liberty Union Party. He was there in the middle of researching an article on natural childbirth for Movement, Liberty Union's newspaper. According to Deloz, "Many elements of Western medicine came under suspicion during this period, but none more so than modern obstetrics." Sanders was there on a 3 day trial period.

Other than working on his article, which involved interviewing a pregnant member of the commune, Sanders spent his time at Myrtle Hill in "endless political discussion," Deloz reports. This did not go over well with the rest of the hippies, who were working the land the way folks used to do in Colonial Vermont, which meant enduring long hours of backbreaking labor. According to Daloz, one of the commune members, Craig, "resented feeling like he had to pull others out of Bernie's orbit if any work was going to get accomplished that day."

In the end, Sanders was told he was no longer welcome because he wasn't contributing. "When Bernie had stayed for Myrtle's allotted three days, Craig politely requested that he move on," Daloz reports.

Yeah, if only he had Orange ---------- ridiculous haircut and poor fitting suits, he'd look like a "businessman"!

I know you're trying to be funny, but righties have shown that they have absurdly shallow qualifications for being POTUS. Shallow to the extent of being worrisome to the non-mouthbreathers among us.

Wow, Angrymouthbreather attempted to make a funny, but in his idiocy just proved that I am one of the few "non-mouthbreathers among us."

Well done, I guess.
