@5 should have been @4.

@5 Gee, it's almost like the intended audience of Mass's blog is somebody other than the scientific community. Tell me again why only Chaz gets a free pass to write junk science?

I'll just go ahead and assume that you don't care how much water it takes because of the "someone else does it, so it's fine" defense that the Democrats have claimed ownership of this election cycle.
Jul 27 MajordomoPicard commented on It Has Come to My Attention That Some People Still Haven't Watched Bill Clinton's Speech Last Night at the DNC.
@2 I think most of the criticism leveled at the GOP is directed at the candidates themselves — who couldn't put the benefit of (the party, the nation, take your pick) above their own egos — rather than the RNC. Trump is clearly King of the Swollen Egos, but there were some pretty big heads coming out of that Clown Car. They didn't understand the need to unify against Trump until it was way too late. Whereas the DNC was more about shifting things in favor of Clinton subtly, putting the finger on the scales, and then falling back on the tried-and-true "It can't be bad if the other guys did it!" excuse.

So yeah, funny in a Tears of A Clown sort of way.

I know Trump appeared on-stage before his big night at the RNC, but did Hillary do something similar for the DNC? I guess what I'm getting at is, was there a picture of her from last night that they even could have run, assuming that they wanted to documents new from last night with, y'know, photographs from last night?
Jul 26 MajordomoPicard commented on Bernie Sanders: "Hillary Clinton must become the next president of the United States!".
@17 "if people stopped attacking Hillary"

That will not happen in the next three months. The RNC was just a preview, and the GOP's hate dial goes to 11.

Why am I not at all surprised that Dan Savage fails to understand that somebody can support a political candidate while not agreeing with every single word they say?

@61 'Luckreasons' should be 'reasons.' It's an invention of my phone's autocorrect, not some German-ish compound I'm trying to push.

It's a good thing center-right Democrats have such an effective Boogeyman in Trump this year. I'd be really curious to see what their approach to intimidating Progressives into voting for the ticket would be without him. I know there are good luckreasons to vote Clinton, but when you compare all the arguments being made 'for' her on the basis of traction they get, Fear of Trump wins by a country mile. I guess the Republicans don't quite have a monopoly on fear-based politicking.

It's not a stretch that "fury at Hillary" will define the Republican Party in 2016. It's not like the GOP is suffering from a dearth of anger, or hatred, or fear. Hatred is what sustains them; hatred is what consumes them; hatred is what defines them.
