#TasteTheBern: Could Bernie Sanders get an ice cream flavor named after him?

Ben & Jerry’s co-founder Ben Cohen has clearly thought about this. 

In an interview with MSNBC’s Kate Snow, Cohen revealed his idea for “Bernie’s Yearning”, which contains mint chocolate ice cream with a chocolate disk on top: 

“The disk of chocolate represents the 90 percent of the wealth that’s gone to the top 10 percent over the last 10 years. … You take your spoon, you whack that big chocolate disk into a bunch of little pieces.”

Bernie Sanders Wins Every Demographic Group
The results are in: Donald Trump claims the New Hampshire primary; Bernie Sanders tops Hillary Clinton.
By David R. Jones

Senator Bernie Sanders beat Hillary Clinton among nearly every demographic group in the Democratic New Hampshire primary, according to exit polls.

He carried majorities of both men and women. He won among those with and without college degrees. He won among gun owners and non-gun owners. He beat Mrs. Clinton among previous primary voters and those participating for the first time. And he ran ahead among both moderates and liberals.

Even so, there were a few silver linings for Mrs. Clinton. While Mr. Sanders bested her among all age groups younger than 45, the two candidates polled evenly among voters aged 45 to 64. And Mrs. Clinton won the support of voters 65 and older. And, though Mrs. Clinton lost nearly every income group, she did carry voters in families earning over $200,000 per year.

Don’t forget to vote!! 

I certainly don’t think that Bernie Sanders is some sort of messiah, but I do appreciate that he is pushing back against big business and I believe he’s much more concerned about the average working American than any other candidate.

Why don’t you like Hillary Clinton for the Democratic nominee?

For exactly the same reasons I didn’t care for her in 2008. What, do people reeeally believe she’s changed that much in the last seven years? And as I recall, lots and lots of people stanning hard for her now ALSO disliked her entitled, dismissive tone and her centrist politics in 2008.

Nearly 8 years later, and those policies have only changed very slightly, if at all.

Yes, I agree: diehard BernieBros™ are aggravating, paternalistic and truly horrendous - and they may have irreparably damaged Sanders’ campaign - but I’m sorry, that still does not change the fact that it’s still the same overly militaristic, private prison loving, 3 Strikes You’re Black, Hillary from 1993, 2003 and 2008. And no, her sudden, last minute, newly revamped “progressive” talk does not magically make her better than her primary opponent.
