Man, I think even Bernie has more actual music cred than Beto.

Sure, Beto claims to be a punk, but Spoon just shared a video of Buttigieg playing  "The Way We Get By" on piano

https://twitter.com/spoontheband/status/1116777247996665856

Mayor Pete Buttigieg Impressed the Hell Out of Ben Folds During a Duet in 2015

Buttigieg Performed With the South Bend Symphony Orchestra in 2013 (scroll down past the ben folds story)

apparently he plays guitar too.  overall has more music cred than beto, IMO.

I think the fcucking suit disqualifies him from any chance at being cool.

Can't believe folks would love a guy running against the most loathsome toad in America, and then not be as enamored when he actually had to make a case for himself against actual, qualified candidates!

Also as a #BernieBro even I find him calling Phish "one of the great bands, have been one of the great bands in this country" is pretty close to disqualifying.

Yeah, I feel like it's probably pandering given his state, but come on, man, cut that shit out.

I think we can forgive him for that comment given that he more than makes up for it by loving Celine Dion.

Favorites
 Last year, Sanders told Rolling Stone he favors classical music: “On my iPad, I have all of Beethoven’s symphonies,” he said. In terms of pop, he championed “the Motown sound,” especially the Supremes and Temptations. Sanders confessed he loves Abba and disco (especially the Bee Gees), and Celine Dion.

come on 19 months will seem like a week...or an eternity

first debate...June 26, 2019....and ELEVEN more after that until April 2020
going to end up being some weird debates
should probably go American Idol style where everyone texts in their vote (ranked choice of course)


then these important dates in 2020
February 3: Iowa caucus
February 11: New Hampshire primary
February 22: Nevada caucus
February 29: South Carolina primary
March 3: Super Tuesday (Alabama, Arkansas, California, Massachusetts, Minnesota, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, and Virginia primaries)

My first actual thing to do will be in less than 11 months (being from the fine state of VA)
so these 19 better court me with dinner and drinks before I put out...and I'm not getting the chicken!


This was an interesting note I found
The New York primary is scheduled for February 4 for procedural reasons, but its date is expected to be amended, likely to a date earlier than in past years, potentially in February or March 2020
be nice to see a state other than Iowa, Kansas, NH or SC dominate the first few primaries.  Those states represent such a skewed profile of the USA it's kind of absurd
