77. What is the point of talking if not to influence people?
The apparent premise is that anyone who is offended when I say something stupid is an idiot. Conversely, anyone who is influenced when I say something wise, is intelligent. It doesn't work that way. People are influenced, regardless of the value of what I say - but I don't get to pick how.

Because of the Hillary logo in the upper left corner, what I say in defense of HRC both reflects on her campaign, her other supporters and democrats in general.
