in the past few hours Jude Fawley 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)

@52, ignore him, the dudes just being deliberately abstruse.

@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.

@37 I don't understand what you are trying to say (except for the sarcastic intro)

People who think everyone should just accept that Clinton won and move on: What would you do, in November, if polls showed that Trump (or some other Republican, some other year) was guaranteed to win? Like, up by 20 points? Would you decide not to vote? Or would you just vote for the Republican since you know he or she will be the president? Or would you vote for the Democrat even when you knew he or she would loose?

They could have hired better Obama impersonator! I guess I should get around to watching season 1.

Call me picky, but I'm not a big fan of the phrase "garbage people", even for people who hold bigoted views. Doesn't really seem journalistic, even for the Stranger.

Has there ever been a good biopic? All the ones I've seen, all the way back to Gandhi, felt boring and totally predictable.
