Can't we get Molly Moon into this race?

What do we want? Salted lavender-pomegranite ice cream! How we gonna pay for it? Voter-approved excess levies!

@6 -- You sure you're not a Nigerian Prince with a bazillion dollars to deposit?

@2 -- a.k.a. "Louisiana primary".

Potentially subject to strategic manipulation, as a major party may eliminate the opposing party from the runoff by successfully injecting multiple candidates bearing the opposing party label into the primary stage, thus fragmenting their vote. Also tends to favor centrist candidates of either party.

@4 -- There may be a flaw in that proof. I keep running into people who voted for Sawant in 2013 with the intent of lighting a fire under Conlin, not electing Sawant.
Apr 9 RonK, Seattle commented on Is the Case Against Ed Murray Politically Motivated? Here’s What the Lawyer for His Accuser Says.

@2 -- And
The likelihood of this bill making it through the Republican-controlled House and Senate seems slim ...
Sorry. Slim is hunkering down out of town, while Trump's Vandals sack the Capitol.

Strange that Sanders -- who devoted a lifetime to leftist politics without single progressive achievement -- became a progressive idol, but these are strange times.

And say what you will about Comey, or Putin, but Trump would not be POTUS if Sanders had run a campaign of ideas and concrete policy proposals rather than a smear campaign of disinsinnuendo targeting the eventual Democratic nominee.

I till want my flying car, dammit, with or without Scarlett Johansson.
Mar 28 RonK, Seattle commented on Investors Pull Out of Markets, Fearing That Trump Does Not Have Their Backs.
Every market dip heralds a crisis of capitalism.

Just like every snowstorm disproves global warming.
Mar 27 RonK, Seattle commented on Speedballs for Hitler: According to Blitzed, Nazis Were Meth-Addled Psychos.
Meth-addled psychos?

Good thing we don't have to deal with those in our political system, right?
