commented on The Green Party Responds to Dan Savage, Says He's "Dead Wrong"
If the Greens were serious they would have more than 100 elected officials (some of them in quite minor roles) in more than two states. By their own count, their success has been pretty thin on the ground. Savage is right. They don't play a very good electoral game. The most prominent of their elected officials is a Mayor in a town of 20,000 people in California.
When they have elected officials in 30 states and legislators in 5 or 10 of them, then they can call themselves a serious party. Until then, they're little more than a blip on the screen.

This whole thing sounds like a wife discovering that her long time husband is gay and has been cheating on her with men for years. Her use of the term "closet" made me think that.
Very few couples weather that shitstorm. I ache for this guy.
And #3, while I understand what you're saying, she has to speak in generalities having never met either of the people in question. You can't psychoanalyze someone you haven't seen in person.

National polls mean nothing. They never have and they never will. We do not have a national election in this country. We have 50 statewide elections.
The fact is that the Rs have painted themselves into a corner. States that have reliably voted Republican are numerous but have few electoral votes. States that reliably vote Democratic have many more electoral votes. And in the end, that's ALL that matters.
So liberals can stop running around like headless chickens. Again.

Seriously. Why don't you report the guy? People are SO fucking passive. Can't be bothered to say something to the people who work at the gym, but you write to the newspaper?
