And then we have Clinton, talking about "bringing African-Americans to heel," and vowing unconditional support to racist psychopath Netanyahu, and praising the IDF for mass-murdering Palestinian children, and shoring up support for a coup regime in Honduras which hunts down and murders environmental activists.
So, yes-- maybe we SHOULD talk about Jill Stein.

Excellent response from the Green Party.
Dan Savage subscribes to what I call the "Rahm Emmanuel Doctrine." This doctrine states that to advance a progressive agenda, progressives should sit down and shut up and surrender unconditionally to the center-right leadership of the Democratic Party; that we should cheerfully go along with the Patriot Act, the invasion of Iraq, extrajudicial execution/kill lists, double-tap drone strikes, the imprisonment of whistleblowers, prosecution of child soldiers (using evidence obtained through torture), slaughter of Palestinian children, warrantless surveillance, etc, etc; and that by proclaiming our unconditional devotion to the proponents of these policies (as long as they have that magical "-D" after their name), and letting them know we will vote for them no matter how savagely they trample upon human rights and civil liberties, we will somehow be advancing progressive ideals.
Of course, Rahm Emmanuel doesn't really believe in this doctrine; he simply espouses it as part of his agenda to shut down progressives. I suspect Dan Savage is the same way.
commented on Dan Savage on Jill Stein: Just No.
@23 here's some more of Clinton's platforms:
--supported the bombing of schools and hospitals in Gaza in 2014, singing the praises of the IDF as they murdered 500 Palestinian children. Criticized Obama for expressing concern about the slaughter
--has vowed unconditional support for the openly-racist Netanyahu regime
--supports the coup regime in Honduras, which is currently hunting down and killing environmental activists
--supports the imprisonment of whistleblowers
--supports warrantless surveillance, government secrecy, and the patriot act
