Just in case you didn’t know, Ben and Jerry of overpriced ice cream fame are Bernie Bros. and flaming progressive liberals — but of course you knew that. Ben Cohen has his eye on the midterms, and on Friday he asked for help coming up with names for seven new ice cream flavors to represent seven up-and-coming progressives running for Congress.
Yo, internet! We need ur help to come up with 7 amazing flavors for 7 amazing up & coming progressives who could be headed to Congress in Nov. To sweeten the deal, Jerry & I will personally make a small batch of each of the winning flavors @MoveOn https://t.co/Gvn876rtTA

We love the disclaimer, “The people, not the corporation” — gotta keep it grassroots, you know?
Anyway, the internet came through and provided some great suggestions.
Democrat flavors? No clue.
But I’m sure it’ll cost twice as much and only be half full.
