Shortly after the apocalyptic signs in the sky and what-not, Facebook went down. Again. Facebook officials claimed that it was due to “configuration issues,” but insiders admit it was the sheer weight of Bernie Sanders supporters that caused the problem.
By August 22 Bernie Sanders page had received 1,218,879 likes and the number continues to climb. Hillary Clinton had only received 1,205,437 and apparently more of hers came from Baghdad than any American city.  While President Obama has been accused of just about everything else, so far as I am aware, no one has as yet accused him of extending American voting rights to Iraq.
Apparently Clinton has over 18,150 followers in Myanmar. Myanmar is not a county in Alabama, by the way. It’s a country in Asia where either a great many people are interested in the American election process or where there are “click farms” where Facebook “likes” can be purchased.
By contrast, Senator Sanders share of foreign “likes” is much smaller and comes primarily from Western Europe which does have a vested interested in who becomes the next American president because, well, they are between the US and Russia and that’s becoming a thing again.
Sanders popularity on the internet has become a focal point of media coverage off the web. It is something the pundits haven’t quite understood. It crept up on them.
But there is no denying it. The Sandersforpresident subreddit has over 112,000 readers. There are Facebook pages for Sanders from towns, counties and states across the country.
Sanders supporters are everywhere.
After the second time Facebook went down, Mark Zukerberg was overheard muttering, “It’s those Sanders people. We’ve been vacuuming them out of the servers.”
