What If They Started A People's Party And No People Showed Up?

I just noticed this only too typical quixotic indulgence is afoot: Draft Bernie For A People's Party I do wonder if the handful of fauxvolutionary Greens, Naderites, and techbros who make the most noise about this will re-think calling it the "People's Party" when they realize there are no people in it. Hey, they might not ever get anybody elected Dog Catcher let alone President, any more than the Greens do here, but I'm sure a breathless online manifesto is forthcoming.
