Bernie Sanders Is Coming to Portland on August 9 (and Everyone Is Going)

Hillary Clinton will be here too this week, but you can't afford to go to that event.


If there's one thing the people of Portland love, it's the most liberal possible probably-not-viable candidate for president.In 2000 when Al Gore visited our fair city, his message was almost drowned out by Ralph Nader supporters protesting him as a "Republi-crat."

Really. At the rally planned at the same time as the Republican National Convention in St. Paul, he used “revolution” or its variants (i.e. ...   More
