Because It’s Always 2016 Somewhere In The World.

So, according to Senator Support Our Troops, the Donkeycrats are in danger of veering “too far to the left”, and that the issues Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez ran on — and won — would somehow “alienate” Midwesterners.

At last, no more watching for little shreds of TV coverage, of scouring another city’s IMC postings — the revolution circus was coming to my town, and I was going to actually be in it, and photographing and taping it, and telling the story of that week for everybody else out there… and, the wheatpasting.
