Killer Mike and Bernie Sanders… because I’m tired, and because it’s awesome

I’m exhausted tonight, and I lack the anger necessary to blog properly. So, I’m just going to leave you with this… video of Senator Bernie Sanders and Atlanta rapper Killer Mike, sitting in barber chairs, talking about life in modern America between fist bumps. It’s good stuff.

I hope with all of my heart that Bernie takes the White House in 2016, and makes Killer Mike the next Vice President of the United States. If that doesn’t happen, though, I hope Bernie does something huge with Mike. Maybe a revival of The Odd Couple on Broadway. Maybe a Sunday morning talk show. Maybe a reality program where they travel around the United States in an old car and stay in the homes of regular people, cooking dinner with them while talking about their lives. I don’t much care. I just want to keep seeing them together, doing stuff. It makes me feel hopeful. And I need that right now.

    I’m hoping that Jon Edwards and Ross Perot make a comeback as a dual ticket.

    Tony Orlando is a Mike Huckabee fan. I’d like to see them on tour.

    At the very least Killer Mike should get a cabinet position, like Department of Commerce.

    He would be perfect for Commerce. Did you hear him talking in the first video about how he used to sell chickens, fish, and “things that fell off of trucks” to his neighbors as a kid?

    If Killer Mike is elected VP then he would serve as President of the Senate. Thus, he would need to develop a good relationship with Mitch McConnell. I think that’s doable.

    Mike would never leave El-P.

    If done right, Killer Mike wouldn’t have to leave EI-P. Run the Jewels could be established as an arm of the government, like Homeland Security would created a few years ago.
