commented on A Quick Interview With Journalist Chris Hedges
@ 22 - Xeno claimed there is no such thing as movement, because it cannot logically be proven to exist, despite the fact that we all move all the time and logic doesn't prevent me from arriving at work every morning. You, similarly, want to argue that there's no logical reason to blame Nader for Bush winning the 2000 election, despite a casual glance at the numbers indicating that he absolutely did have an effect.
The turnout for the 2000 election was not statistically that far out of the norm for US presidential elections in the past 30 years. It was actually higher than the previous election. People don't stay home on election day so much because they find candidates unappealing, as they do because they find voting unappealing. The idea that if Gore was a real candidate, there would have been 80% turnout, or whatever amount you think would register as noteworthy is belied by the fact that only half the country ever voted in elections these days.

@10, 11, and 12 - Jonathan, wouldn't it be much easier to just have your attorneys shake down Mr. Frizzelle, instead of scouring the Internet looking for articles being critical of you and commenting on them?

@19 He doesn't know anything that he's not telling us. He's simply saying that Dan Savage having the power to fire and hire people means that he is not allowed to comment on the hiring or firing of any other organization, for reasons that I'm sure make complete sense to a poster who managed to somehow cobble together a functioning brain stem from spare kidney and bladder cells that he wasn't using.
