How do the anti-Semites square supporting Trump even though he's stridently pro-Israel? Yet another sign that Trump people are impervious to facts (and anti-Semites are morons).

"Luke Cooke" is a terrible name. Just say it out loud...all those harsh consonants. He was destined for a wretched life from the very beginning.

What the hell is going on with the road rage in Mount Pleasant, NC?

@19: Did you just post a FoxNews poll to prove your point? That's awesome! Also, it's fucking MAY. Way too soon to care about random polls from Koch-led media.

@12: There's also a difference between "untrustworthy" and "having a nuanced and evolving position": http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/…

@12: I think if she decided she wanted to do any of those things--and her decisions can be influenced by Sanders supporters, or anyone else, who make good arguments and apply political pressure--she has a better chance of doing what's necessary to get them done than Sanders. Why do I think that? Because she actually has a record of GETTING SHIT DONE (unlike Sanders).

Boy, am I tired of Sanders supporters just saying things. Clinton really does have her good points, people. Many unbiased observers (FiveThirtyEight, etc) have noted her actual truth-telling to be at or above the level of most politicians (Politifact has her at the same percentage as Sanders) so I just don't buy this whole "she's untrustworthy!" thing. The Sanders crowd evidently dwell in a make-believe realm of politics, where getting your hands dirty and trying to actually make shit happen (much of it good shit) is "duplicitous."

Anyway, I feel like shaving my head and going to the Convention dressed as Sinead O'Connor, standing on the dais and shouting "fight the real enemy!" while I tear up a picture of Trump.

I'm not sure how buying a particular product on Amazon hurts the retailer, when that retailer clearly isn't losing out on sales for that product (beyond their stocking problem, which I don't think is related in any way? Am I missing something?)
May 15 schmacky commented on Captain America: Civil War Is Such a Fucking Mess, I Don't Know Where to Start.
@10 has it right. Great movie on the Iron Man franchise scale, and pretty great even on the Avengers scale. But Cap's movies have been the gold standard; more grounded, with minimally noticeable CGI and stories that owe more to '70s era political potboilers than typical comic book tropes. You can tell in the opening fight sequence they've lost that thread; it's a mess. Everything is amped to 11, like a goddamn video game.

There are some good moments, but it's nowhere near the standard set by the first movie, or Winter Soldier...easily the best of all the Marvel movies. Civil War is just not in that class.

Every Bernie voter needs to listen to this immediately. (ducks)
