Fess up Bernie. Hillary stole it fair ‘n’ square!

Greetings,

Super Bowl 50. Meh.

Since Green Bay isn’t in it, I have only a passing interest. I am rooting for Denver only because their back up QB is from Kalispell,  or Collie-spell, Montana. Borck Rottweiler or some such.

Smile Jamaica’s Peyton Manning Game: Take a hit or down a shot every time Peyton says Omaha!

Same with the Iowa Caucus.

As Bob said, “No bide your isms an schisms.” I’m feelin’ fine with Jill Stein.

Dr. Jill Stein, Green Party candidate for President. Smile Jamaica approved

But in the Hillary vs. Bernie hoe-down (no pun intended), I’m kind of like: tastes great, less filling. In our winner take all “Democracy”, you can only  have 1 winner and 1 loser.

So I ‘n’ I gwan Bern one down, till I vote for Jill the Thrill in November

bless, robt
