well yeah, it is convenient, as every single objective measure and common fucking sense said that Bernie would be far more likely than Clinton to claim victory over a gigantic scumbag liar like Trump. and it was tested. they tested it with polls. that's what makes it so convenient.

i agree that op-ed is sorely lacking in the class department. but that op-ed's too few direct and indirect invocations of class are neither here nor there. the point remains the same that the discourse and guiding politics need to change to a class focus if someone other than Trump/some other righty is going to have a chance.

i thought it was implied but perhaps it isn't. though his tweets and article he linked to certainly seem to confirm it.

the point of the joke was this: the DNC/HRC Dems lost the election because they focused on a politics of identity and not of class. Bernie knew class politics was the winning strategy. It's ALL he talked about - the 1% vs. the 99%, wall st., student debt, economic inequality, breaking up big banks, raising the minimum wage, etc. He knew and still knows that the one thing that unites more people than anything else is the fact that most people are struggling economically. Sanders' focus on class politics, had him among all Dem candidates, as the clear favorite to beat Trump. Class politics is the only reason the vast majority of us ever even heard the name Bernie Sanders. It's the only way to ensure in 4 years' time we won't be staring at another 4 years of Trump.

it's really the chorus that kills it for me and not just cuz of the chipmunk voices. every other section is great though.

a summertime release for a VW album automatically means this will be one of the best summers of our or anyone's lives. one of my all time fave bands and i love MVOTC but...the final third of the album is kinda weak: worship you, ya hey, hudson, young lion.

PJ are extremely important. it is of utmost importance to have bands that make incredibly good music that simultaneously has a broad appeal and over a long period of time (which can be argued is just a bonus). more people listening to better music is a great and important thing for music, art, humanity.
