Feb 22 Pope Buck I commented on Hillary Clinton Used to Be Terrible On Marriage Equality.
As Robert Heinlein put it, the poignant thing about democracy is that it is ALWAYS going to be a choice of the lesser of two evils - there are no perfect candidates for the simple reason that there are no perfect humans. But as rare as it is to find an inspiring figure worth voting for, there is ALWAYS going to be someone worth voting against.

We liberals are always looking for a messiah. We thought we had one in Obama in 2008, and then he turned out to be "just a politician" after all - so we collectively sat home in 2010 and let the Republicans run the table.

Never again. I'm in the tank for Bernie, but I'll happily vote for Hillary if she's the nominee. Because even if Hillary were as awful as the Republicans and the nastier Bernie supporters think she is - and for the record, I don't think she is - she would STILL be better than "first they came for the Mexicans and the Muslims."
Nov 5, 2015 Pope Buck I commented on Bernie Sanders's Pot Legalization Bill Is Another Example of Why We Need Him in This Race.
Wait, only bourgeois white people smoke pot or are interested in legalization?

That will come as news to all those black people being locked up for it.

If she's promising pizza and anal for everyone, she's got MY vote.
Nov 3, 2015 Pope Buck I commented on Seattle Theater Critic Invites the Women of Craigslist to Purchase His "Plus Ones" at Reduced Rate.
There are far more serious crimes against humanity going down, people. So let's all talk about that fat woman caught taking more than one piece of Halloween candy, instead!

I loved "The Incredible Shrinking Woman"!

"A woman who gave so very very much... and got so little."
Oct 22, 2015 Pope Buck I commented on Today in "Perfect": Laverne Cox to Play Rocky Horror's Frank-N-Furter.
And on network TV, no less. They're gonna censor the hell out of it. Bleah.
Oct 19, 2015 Pope Buck I commented on Trump & Bush Decide Now's as Good a Time as Any to Fight About 9/11.
Oops, that should have been directed at @9.

@10: Lovely. When does your searing musical satire open on Broadway? Because you just never see that many ridiculous straw-man representations of liberal beliefs lined up all at once like that. I can't wait to catch "Right-Wing Troll: The Musical!"
Oct 16, 2015 Pope Buck I commented on A Handful of Top Democratic Officials Are Squabbling Like Babies.
"If the Democrats were smart—like, Donald Trump smart—they could turn this ugly dust-up to their advantage by crafting a narrative that Debbie is a scary powerful woman, unafraid to speak the truth and demolish anyone who stands in her way, the Devil Wears Prada lady of politics."

Except no one would believe a word of it. DWS has presided over the loss of both houses of Congress (even as both of Obama's campaigns were big successes, and even given the current GOP's state of disarray). She jettisoned Howard Dean's successful 50-state strategy. And now she's so intent on coronating Hillary that she'll scuttle the whole debate schedule if she has to. I don't say that as any kind of Bernie true believer, either - I'd be happy with either Hillary or Bernie as our nominee, I just happen to think that a healthy debate gets voters excited.
Oct 9, 2015 Pope Buck I commented on Another School Shooting. Not That One From This Morning. Another Another One..
They had planned it for Monday, but then they heard Obama plans to take everyone's guns away over the weekend, so they rescheduled it for today.
