I remember the woman on the plane prior to Obama being elected
telling me “America just isn’t ready for a black president.”
I remember rolling in my skin like some restrained honey badger
daydreaming to snack out her vocal cords, wondering how I might
add height to her short-sighted. “If not now, then when?”

I suspect in the coming months I will be sitting next to that woman
a thousand times over listening to people try to convince me
that America just isn’t ready for an honest politician.
Bernie Sanders, You have my vote.
Stay on track, Bossman.

Some 27,000 people descended Monday night on the Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena, which has hosted acts such as Madonna and Pink Floyd, to hear from a raspy-voiced 73-year-old who has become the 2016 political season's breakout star.

PS Think “The Onion,” and I suspect there’ll be less people
baffled by this article in The New Yorker.
