commented on You're Wrong About That: The "Keep Hope Alive" Edition
Ha, "Wrong John Silver". It's so stupid, but why am I still laughing about it? Probably because I've had this exact conversation with Bernie people who were earnestly explaining why we don't have to worry about a Trump presidency.
commented on Rex Tillerson to Humans: You Must Adapt to Global Warming
Nobody is suggesting we suddenly eliminate all fossil fuel use. The military can go on burning its jet fuel. Just getting electric power generation off coal would be a huge first step, and would not make us "weak" at all, jeeze.
Shifting to new power sources might seem scary, but I guarantee you it will be a lot cheaper than letting Rex Tillerson make as many billions as he wants, and passing the far greater price of adapting all of civilization to survive a changed planet on to the rest of us.

commented on Watch Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton Campaign Together Today in New Hampshire
Already happening over on reddit. Bernie has gone from hero to zero, just as I predicted would happen when he inevitably endorsed Clinton. It's amazing how few of them saw it coming. For a large chunk of his former supporters, he was just a convenient outlet for their anti-Clinton rage, and now they're breaking about 50/50 for Stein and Trump.

commented on ICYMI: Sen. Elizabeth Warren Endorses Hillary Clinton
It's also becoming clear to me, as the Feel the Bern movement evolves into the Never Hillary movement, how much of Sanders' support has nothing to do with him or his policies, but is just a handy receptacle for anti-Clinton rage.
