The Big Dog comes to Whitehaven High on VERY short notice

For those who may not have heard, the greatest Democratic orator since Franklin Roosevelt (and I MEAN that) and the 42nd President of the United States, Bill Clinton, is coming to town to speak at my alma mater, Whitehaven High School, this evening.

Whitehaven, people, which, as my friend and brother Del Gill will tell you is the center of the Democratic universe in Shelby County.  It is the center of what remains of middle-class African-American life in Memphis.

To my brothers and sisters of the Democratic faith who are supporting Hillary: Go and enjoy and revel, because hearing The Big Dog preach the Democratic gospel is one of the great joys of life.

To my brothers and sisters who are, as I am, supporters of Bernie Sanders, let's think about this for a moment.  The DAY after taking a whipping in New Hampshire, the Clinton campaign decides to send Bill Clinton to WHITEHAVEN, on the SECOND day of early voting, BEFORE THE SATELLITES HAVE EVEN OPENED.  Where Hillary should be worshipped as a goddess, where she should theoretically have no problems in the March 1 election, am I right?

Think about that for a moment, but not TOO long.  That TELLS you they are vulnerable and we as Sanders supporters have to SEIZE this moment and take every advantage of it.  WE CAN WIN SHELBY COUNTY.  If it were out of play, 42 would not be speaking tonight at Whitehaven High School.

It's up to us.  Gotta go to work, enjoy the day, people!
