commented on A Bernie Sanders Staffer May Have Just Fucked the Whole Campaign
If anyone doesn't want this distraction, it's Hillary Clinton. I'm sure she has nothing to do with it.
Why? Because she's winning and by huge margins. No need to upset the apple cart now.
Sorry, Sanders folks. I know you like to feel like you're man is the victim of some huge conspiracy. But he's not. He just can't win. He doesn't excite large swaths of the Democratic electorate -- especially moderates, older folks, blacks and latinos.
Every poll of Nevada (3rd state to vote), South Carolina (4th state to vote) and most of the "Super Tuesday" states show he's losing and losing by huge margins. He's losing Texas by 30%, Virginia by 36%, Nevada by 26% and South Carolina by 44%!
This campaign is over and has been over since it even began. Sanders will be dropping out sometime after March 1st and will be endorsing Clinton.

commented on Lebanon Is Mourning 43 People Killed by Terrorist Bombings
This is a really dumb post by Ansel but I'll answer it anyway.
1) Because most Americans have a fondness for Paris and many have been there whereas few even know where Beirut is.
2) What Rotten 666 said.
3) Because France is a major ally of the U.S. and involved in a war with us.
4) Because the death toll in France is greater than in Beirut. While this is the worst terrorism to hit Beirut since the civil war this is the worst to hit France since WW II.
