55. You misunderstood my response.
I was not responding in favor of what Der Blaue Engel had posted. The post to which I was responding seemed to think that Der Blaue Engel was confused about the primary process versus the general election, and chose to make a rather derogatory comment while (ironically) not understanding what Der Blaue Engel had actually posted. I was merely pointing that out to HamdenRice in the same way he chose to point it out.

I was careful to state that that it was the poster's opinion and logic that I was explaining as opposed to my own.

So, while I appreciate your concern for what facts I should be aware of, I would suggest that your efforts would be better targeted towards someone who is making the argument to which you provide a counterpoint.
