COMTE is not putting up with any of your bullshit.
9:00 AM yesterday COMTE commented on How Green Is Her Bullshit: An Uncharacteristically Brief Response to the Green Party Spokesperson's Dishonest Response to My Podcast Rant.
@145:

Sanders will never become SML. Even if the Democrats take control of the Senate in November, Sanders will be returning with a big "I" next to his name, and there is simply no chance that the Dem Caucus will elect someone not from their own party to that position, particularly after going mano a mano with their preferred presidential candidate.
8:46 AM yesterday COMTE commented on How Many Republicans did Obama Turn Into Democrats Last Night?.
@10:

Most people in this country don't register for either party, but do self-identify with them. So, if anyone who's always voted GOP switches this year, that's good enough for me.

@42:

Just because you don't like the term, doesn't mean they don't exist. Also, apparently Sanders himself has acknowledged their existence, to the point he repudiated them in an interview on CNN back in February (starts at the 11:38 mark), characterizing them as "disgusting" and stating emphatically, "we don't want that crap." So, I guess they're not as "nothing" as people wish they were.

@19:

The problem with being so far to the Left is that you can't help but perceive everyone else as being squarely on the Right, as if there was no significant gradation. But for those somewhat closer to the middle, the appreciable differences are much easier to apprehend.

It's like that old New Yorker cover: when you're looking at the rest of the country from 9th Avenue everything west of the Hudson appears as just one big, amorphous mass of sameness.

@33:

I see you missed that I also linked to an entire Google search results page full of articles...
Jul 27 COMTE commented on The Seattle Times Gives the Democratic Nomination to Bill Clinton.
Seriously, it's not like the print media didn't have precisely a half million images of the first female presidential nominee from a major political party in U.S. history at their immediate disposal they could have published instead. What we got though is like, if the day Armstrong and Aldrin set foot on the lunar surface all the papers had instead run photos of Wally Schirra sitting in the CBS broadcast booth next to Walter Cronkite.

@19:

You're assuming they were part of the Democratic Party in the first place.

As for Bernie-bros not "being a thing", well, the you must be the only person who thinks that...

@18:

Dayum, that's some Roswell coverup, faked moon landings, black helicopter, Tri-lateral Commission, chem-trail level conspiracy shit you got going on there. You must not sleep much, laying awake all night spinning convoluted spiderweb scenarios of deep cover, false-false-false flag, triple-switcheroo, CO-CO-COINTELPRO operations to get like that.

And the Bernie-Bros wonder why the rest of us keep harping on the importance of not standing on the sidelines this election. Of course, they're all White and overwhelmingly male, and clearly this has no effect on their lives nor on the lives of anyone they know personally, so...
