commented on Hillary Says Hell No to Yet Another Debate with Bernie
The democratic debates were boring? I thought they were relatively substantive (RELATIVELY). Are you comparing them to Game of Thrones? Do you find all debates boring? That would make you stupid, which I don't think is true. Is it because they were not as circus-like as the republican debates? That would mean that the new standard for "interesting debates" now going to be based on insults, sexual innuendo, and shouting. The option I'm hoping for is that you found them boring because you just didn't like hearing Bernie saying anything bad about Hillary. That would at least make sense.
(I'm still for Bernie, by the way, but I agree that Hillary's right in declining more debates)
commented on How the Continuation of the Bernie Sanders Campaign Hurts the Chances of a Democrat-Controlled Senate
@51, I know the differences between primaries and elections, but I don't think those differences make my "framing" inherently wrong. Supporting Bernie in CA, even though you know he is not going to be the nominee, is similar to voting for a democratic presidential candidate even if I knew she is going to lose. I tried to imagine a scenario in which the polls were clear enough that it was really certain. My point is that just because your candidate is doesn't have a rat's chance in hell of winning, that doesn't mean that you should just support the other candidate. That doesn't make sense for an election (at least I don't think it does; no one actually answered my question so I don't know what you think); and there's no fundamental quality of primaries that indicates that I should preemptively support the presumptive nominee.
