Jill Stein: Winner of the Protests

Dr. Jill Stein, the Green Party candidate, was the clear winner from the protests. Opinions about Bernie's endorsement of Hillary ran from heartbreak to outrage, but not compliance. Jill Stein, on the other hand, showed up in person to several protests and was allowed to take the mic. She was warmly welcomed, and her chant -- "JILL NOT HILL!" -- became a very common refrain by the end of the week.

Even by Tuesday, she joined the march on the DNC by the protesters that was later joined by the walkout delegates, and kept marching with them through the night. I would not be surprised to see her take leadership of a breakaway faction of the progressive left. Again, the DNC brought it on themselves with their own corrupt conduct and refusal to abide by democratic norms.

Here is some chalk art from Thomas Paine Square, on Friday at the protests.

I think she is too much of a crank to actually lead a real movement, but who knows at this point.

This year of all years, being a crank may not keep you from being a contender. :)

Some of us at the Hall should hope not!

Oh, did I type that out loud?
