commented on Dan Savage on Jill Stein: Just No.
Perception bias, though. There aren't many Greens in this area because traditionally the progressives have been wedging into the Dems party around here. WA Greens is basically nonexistent. But that's just us. It's not the rest of the country.

commented on Why Is Hillary Clinton Entitled to Any Washington Superdelegates At All?
Whoever wrote this knows absolutely fuck all about the caucus, the party, or even the Washington State Legislature.
The current delegates are PRECINCT delegates and the Democratic Party has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with how they are drawn. Those delegates, most of them, will go to Legislative District Caucuses. Legislative Districts are drawn by the Redistricting Board every 10 years and approved by the State Legislature. Same for the Congressional Districts.
But if this so-called journalist had done a smidgen of fucking research -- say, the State Legislature website, or the Washington Democrats website, or, really, *anywhere at all*, they'd know that.
Seriously Stranger, your quality is shit these days. The Weekly is making you look GOOD. Maybe Dan should do less media appearances and get in the office and run his fucking paper properly.

I'd rather vote for someone who maybe thinks it doesn't make sense to sue gun manufacturers (rather than, say, sellers or owners) than someone who maybe thinks Saddam Hussein has WMDs and is working with Al Qaeda Taliban Isis. Or thinks that we should prevent democracy in Honduras. Or thinks that billionaires are really just very nice people who care about everyone and if we are very nice to them they will stop fucking us over constantly.

commented on Can't Attend the Washington Democratic Caucuses? Here's How to Cast a Surrogate Vote
If you feel you have something more important to do than participate in the Democratic Party's nomination process, then you have to choose between doing that thing and participating in the Democratic Party's nomination process. Sometimes you gotta make tough choices and you don't get to have your cake and eat it too.
Nobody is entitled to participate in the caucus. Nobody. You do not have a guaranteed right to participate in either the Democratic Party's or the Republican Party's process... or the Libertarian Party's process or the Green Party's process for that matter... the only guaranteed rights you have are to vote in actual election for office, which the caucus is NOT.

Yeah, maybe by the year 2100 when everyone in this thread is long since dead.
What's great is that this completely made up pipe dream will be used by people to justify voting for more broken ST promises.
