Over the weekend, Bernie Sanders and his supporters got their Woody Guthrie on. Brace yourselves:

Maybe a slight lyrical adjustment is in order:

Much more accurate!

      There’s only one thing worse than Bernie’s singing.

      MY singing…

      • Penny✓ItsSoFluffy! #GoBolts!

        Mine is so bad when I sang lullabies to my girls (they were 2 at the time) they told me to stop. They both said, “Momma, no sing”. Yeah, that kinda hurt but… I can’t blame them. 🙂

        • Doc Farmer✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵈᵉᵖˡᵒʳᵃᵇˡᵉ

          My mom had an awful voice. When we said so she’d say “you LOVED it when I sang when you were babies”, to which I replied, “yeah, but we didn’t know any better back then…”

          • Penny✓ItsSoFluffy! #GoBolts!

            Ha ha ha ha ha!!!! Mine still tell me to stop singing, only now they’re mortified when I sing along to their favorite One Direction or 5 Seconds of Summer songs. Yep, I’m that mom. Embarrass the kids? Check. Sing their faves in the car? Check. Do it in front of their friends while carpooling? Absolutely!!!

          • MoxieLouise1

            Aaaah, that brings back memories 🙂

          • Penny✓ItsSoFluffy! #GoBolts!

            Isn’t it great?!

          • MoxieLouise1

            And now my daughter’s passing it on to her 13 year old…Circle of Life.

          • Penny✓ItsSoFluffy! #GoBolts!

            Sweet!

        • Perso Nasplit

          Itd be real bad if those were there first words.

          • Penny✓ItsSoFluffy! #GoBolts!

            Yeah… that would have been heartbreaking… Understandable but heartbreaking nonetheless. 🙂

          • Deplorable Jesse-Messy Hammer

            …I have an idea, friends, on how to make Bernie feel like the critter in your (Penny’s) #SoAnnoying-meme: The lead-in meme on the Twitchy-homepage says “just join hands”, so I say that we blast out to Bernie & his BernFeelers, “Now THIS is how you “just join hands”, Bernsters!!!” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GRooHlfZM3s

          • Penny✓ItsSoFluffy! #GoBolts!

            Heh heh heh…

          • Deplorable Jesse-Messy Hammer

            …And another thing for the Bernster, friends: Bernie should do like this #WoodyGuthrie-title implies and (as long as he’s in Iowa) put himself “out to pasture”. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BH2DJvgNlMA

      • Evie1949

        You have not yet heard me sing.

        • Penny✓ItsSoFluffy! #GoBolts!

          My dogs howl in agony when I try. So do the dogs next door.

          • Evie1949

            I figured church was the only place I could sing without getting told to sit down and shut-up but everyone else prayed extra hard to see if that would work to get me stopped.

        • Doc Farmer✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵈᵉᵖˡᵒʳᵃᵇˡᵉ

          My singing has been declared a war crime under the Geneva Conventions…

          • Evie1949

            You win – I just make converts to religion.

  • Russ

    Oh, that was painful.

  • Doc Farmer✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵈᵉᵖˡᵒʳᵃᵇˡᵉ

    Can we please hold an immediate vote – for him to NEVER sing again?

  • Acuda4me ✓Please!

    “This land was your land… this land is MY land….”

    Okay, tie-dye shirt… check.
    Love beads… check.
    Bong… check.
    “Herbage”… check.
    Hippie a$$hole singing stupid crap… check.

    Welcome to 1964.

    No great shocker there…taking from the wealthy and giving to the lazy always gives Bernie a “woody.”

  • Martin Cohn

    He should have stuck with Arlo Guthrie’s “City of New Orleans”. It’s an allegory of his policies (a train wreck that killed 11).

    • jaded

      he’d have to go with John Denver’s switched lyrics though, otherwise too raycissss.

  • whatev…✓ yo’self.

    From California AND the New York Island……

    (Everything else is flyover country that doesn’t really matter.)

    William Jennings Bryan, a populist candidate, once gave a speech about being crucified on a golden cross.
    Bernie Sanders is trying the same tactic and these fools can’t see that Sanders owns the fucking cross!

    And we’re done,folks. Thanks for stopping by.

    Or “this land is no longer your land”

  • Michael the white suburbanite


    There was a big high wall there that tried to stop me
    Sign was painted, said “private property”
    But on the back side it didn’t say nothing
    This land was made for you and me

    There it it folks buried in the middle

    Isn’t Sanders OLDER than Guthrie?

  • Michael the white suburbanite

    notice today’s Google logo?

    • Suzyqpie

      Is it supposed to be Bernie? Looks like Bill Cosby with Charlton Heston-Moses hair….

      • Michael the white suburbanite

        Karl Marx?

        • Suzyqpie

          I don’t see the resemblance, but that would reflect Google philosophy.

  • ssaftler

    Actually, I was thinking that Arlo’s song would be more appropriate, “Alice’s Restaurant”. The chorus is perfect for Bernie’s campaign:

    “You can get anything you want, at Bernie’s Restaurant (for free!)”

  • Evie1949

    “…your land is our land…” yes a more appropriate liberal spin on this song.

  • MoxieLouise1

    Arlo, Woody’s son and a big protester in his own right, has a net worth of $10 million. Wonder how Bernie will handle that.

    • grais

      I’m sure Bernie handled it just fine. Put a bunch of it right in his pocket.

  • https://geekpolitics.liberty.me/ Come On Man!

    Hey Woody Guthrie was a communist so this is quite fitting for Bernie.

  • genes ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵈᵉᵖˡᵒʳᵃᵇˡᵉ

    Does this mean he supports removing Fed control of 50+% of the land in the West?

  • genes ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵈᵉᵖˡᵒʳᵃᵇˡᵉ

    I’m surprised he didn’t go with this.

    I figured he would like Back in the USSR by the Beatles. I am disappointed.
