Santorum was on a show called "The Messy Truth"?

Okay, that's pretty funny.

A guy wearing a sport coat like this is gonna tell us what people like?

No sale.

the only thing is, there's somewhere between a half and a percent that votes Green EVERY 4 years.

So when we're doing the math we would do well to not count on those votes, at all.

Arguably one might make the case that the difference, for instance, between the Green performance in 2012 & 2016, that could be pointed at and said "stupid fucks, you should have voted for Hillary".

But, really, anyone who didn't vote for Hillary, one could make the same argument.

As to your first question, I think Clinton the candidate did an exemplary job from the Convention onward. But I think her campaign made some profound tactical errors around ignoring the rust belt as well as not coming up with a simple cogent message to the economic anxieties of those voters.

Trying to build a horserace out of horseshit again

what the sam hell are you on about, now?

If everyone who thinks porn by and for consenting adults should be legal is an "MRA"... well, I thought it was just a few fringe youtube assholes, but I guess there are a lot more of them than I thought?

Actually, though, as usual, your overly verbose harumph-age is exactly 180 degrees away from objective reality:

GOP platform draft declares pornography 'public health crisis'

Donald Trump Seems to Have Signed an Anti-Porn Pledge

yeah, it's like someone broke into the convention and just left him there on the stage.

How'd he get here? We had nothing to do with it.

I got accused of being "mean to Christians", here on DU today

so I'll just keep my mouth shut

we haven't had a good one of these in a while, and it shows.

some people really need to get it out of their systems.

I've already been called all the usual names, here.. you know, I "luuuuuuuuv" the porn industry, I'm panicked that the mean anti-sex brigades are "coming to take it away", all that shit. And -this one's great- I "will criticize Christianity but not porn"!

Santa's not coming to my house, this year, that's for sure.

Again, the idea that there might be something resembling a coherent philosophical point under this, too difficult to grok.

I should keep my mouth shut, if I don't want to be insulted by the usual suspects, I guess.. although since I don't actually give a shit about being insulted, fuck it, I'm gonna speak my mind.

I worked for an indie video store, back in the day. Saw plenty of that old time VHS smut come and go, so to speak. And I would be the first to admit that some porn does have misogynistic overtones. Certainly. Just like some rap music does. But criticizing a specific work of art or piece of media is different than making blanket assertions about the medium itself.

And if you look at the stuff regularly trotted out in these threads- like someone has a Gail Dines quote "we know how images affect people". Gee, Gail, that sounds serious. And authoritative. But do we? Do we "know how images affect people"? It's typical of the sciencey-sounding bullshit passed off that folks gobble up because it validates their preordained conclusions. Sort of like "we know about the relationship between vaccines and autism"- an anti-vaxxxer could say that, and they might not even technically be lying, because we DO know about the relationship- it's not there.

Similarly, despite decades of hyperbolic hand-waving around "pornography", none of the apocalyptic noise the anti-smut people have been pushing has ever come to pass.

well, the great thing about the Illuminati is, they're an all-purpose conspiracy theory.

They can be Jews, Masons, Catholics, Satanists, The British Royal Family, Scientists, Anarchists, Fascists, Atheists, Communists, Lemurian Lizards from inside the Hollow Earth, Dog People from Sirius, or time-traveling acidheads playing a joke on humanity.

Of course, I'm only saying that to cover for the real Illuminati, who are out to get you.
