It comes only once every four years, and I’m not talking about the presidential election. Nope. Today is Leap Day, an extra day inserted in the calendar every four years to correct for the slight change in the earth’s axis or something like that. If only it were truly an extra day that we could all use to catch up onall the shit we keep putting off.
Alas, that’s not what happened today, but it did give me the impetus to play Billy Bragg’s “Waiting for the Great Leap Forward.” It’s the perfect day to listen to it too…
What a way to start the week… From Thursday’s clown car debate that moved the Republican Party closer to Middle School than presidential politics to the #OscarsSoWhite and lots in between, it was a busy conversation with Joel Silberman (who the Sanders campaign really needs to hire!).
And in hour two, it was our first visit from Benjamin Dixon of The Benjamin Dixon Show. If you’ve not heard his show before, you should check it out. His live program is heard Monday through Thursday nights at 9pm ET. We talked about the multitude of issues surrounding racism in America as they relate to the presidential campaign, Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton, the Oscars and a lot more. It was one of my favorite recent conversations, so I hope you’ll give it a listen.
Tomorrow is Super Tuesday. If you’re a Bernie Sanders supporter but not in a Super Tuesday state? Phone bank! Here’s the info on signing up:
We are using a new dialing tool — the Bernie Dialer — which helps volunteers connect with far more voters per hour than our manual dialing system. We are bringing new states online with the Bernie Dialer in the order in which they vote on the 2016 primary calendar.
Which State Should I Call?
If you live in one of the states listed below, please call your state. If you do not live in one of the states listed below, you can make calls into the Super Tuesday States!
Now get out and help others find the bern!
I’ll leave you with the video I told you about of John Oliver destroying Donald Trump (D’ump). It doesn’t get much better than this, folks…
See you tomorrow, radio or not!
