I’m writing up a post about last weekend’s Sanders-centric “People’s Summit”, which was… not nearly as big a fustercluck as one might have expected, given the participants. But there’s still an excitable #BernieorBust core having a little trouble with a certain enemy of the state known as “math”…

for perspective, the Obama list at its biggest was no more than 12 mil. And 130 mil would = 40% of the U.S. population

Nina Turner on Bernie's nomination fight: "The math is not on his side, but the social studies is on his side." #PPLSummit

In related anti-DNC actions: Cheri Honkala has some experience at grabbing free media, but I’m not 100% convinced this is her most viable publicity idea. (On the other hand, since she’s protested food insecurity among the homeless, collecting canned beans could be useful.) Via commentor Ecomcon:
Cheri Honkala, the leader of the Poor People’s Economic Human Rights Campaign, announced that her group was organizing the world’s largest “fart-in” to be held on July 28 at the Wells Fargo Center during Hillary Clinton’s anticipated acceptance speech for the Democratic nomination.
“We will be holding a massive bean supper for Bernie Sanders delegates on American Street in my Kensington neighborhood on the afternoon of July 28,” she said. “We are setting up a Clintonville there, modeled on the Hoovervilles of the 1930s where the poor and unemployed built shanty towns. The Sanders delegates, their bellies full of beans, will be able to return to the Wells Fargo Center and greet the rhetorical flatulence of Hillary Clinton with the real thing.”
Honkala said she would issue an invitation to Sanders to join the bean supper, which she is calling Beans for Hillary. She has asked donors to send cans of beans to 1301-W Porter Street, Philadelphia, Pa., 19148.
Offering oneself as an expert in flatulence seems… open to misinterpretation?
