Opinon: Sanders’ stripes have changed
Many years ago, Bernie Sanders left his native home in Brooklyn and came to Vermont to lead the simple country folk out of political backwardness. He came to us as a “socialist,” which morphed into “progressive” and finally into the more acceptable “independent.” Beginning as mayor of the Socialist Republic of Burlington, he ranted his way up the political ladder until he won a U.S. Senate seat.
Early in his crusade, Bernie dismissed (or dissed) the two major political parties as Tweadledums and Tweadledoos, but never identified who was which. Now with visions of grandeur swirling in his head of being the next U.S. president he chose to convert into a Democrat. That leaves us to wonder: Is Bernie now a Tweadledum or is he a Tweadeldoo?
