Stick a fork in her

she's done.

Kidding, but since the phrase has been deemed appropriate by Team Clinton I thought I'd try it on.

About us privileged and selfish 'principle voters'

You Hillary supporters love guilting and shaming us by conjuring images of groups we'll be hurting if we don't vote for her. Your concern would carry more weight if you gave a shit about the millions of innocents, hawkish american presidents kill in our military interventions and adventures. I proudly view my "selfish" no-vote for Hillary, as a generous yes-vote for humankind.

Thread of Lies - updated

Hillary supporters, how many of you would throw in the towel if the situation was reversed?

Edit: Please no anecdotes about other elections and candidates. In this election would be ready to quit supporting Hillary right now if the situation was reversed?

Just watched Obama's causal ESPN interview from the stands of the Tampa Bay/Cuba game

Really good. There were some boilerplate platitudes, but most of it was off the cuff and reassuringly intelligent and enjoyable. That's it.

The transcripts are lose/lose for Hillary

I'd love for her to demonstrate that transparency she boasts about, but that's never going to happen because we're talkin Hillary. Either way she takes a hit tho.

If she releases them we get a look at the depth of her conflicts of interest, which IMO are already clearly evident without the speeches.

If she continues to withhold them it only reinforces the notion that she's hiding something, further eroding her abysmal trust and character rating.

The latest attack - 'Bernie's a grifter so stop sending money'

Suddenly everywhere you look blogs and posts are proclaiming "the money Bernie has raised isn't translating into votes, so what's it really for?!?". Obviously, the idea behind this latest sick fuckery is to make you believe Bernie knows he's going to lose, so he's bilking you on the way out the door. What motivates this kind of desperation? I thought these folks were winning.

Preserving the Obama Legacy

I like president Obama. It's hard not to like president Obama. He's done some good things for this country. Arguably, he's done some things that, depending on your perspective, are not so good. Such is the case with most presidents (with the exception of W maybe). Take the ACA, it's certainly a milestone achievement, but depending on your situation and experience, you may view it as a blessing or a curse. We all agree it's far from ideal, and history will reveal if it was a good start or a blind alley. Among other issues: economy, civil liberties and justice, foreign policy... it's a mixed bag. He's done a good job, but there's PLENTY of room for improvement.

This is why I'm confused by the assumed mandate to preserve his legacy as if it's sacrosanct. Especially, in the context of the primary race. I get the desire to hold ground against the eroding force of a republican president, but using Obama's performance as the standard by which we measure and contrast the democratic primary candidates, is kind of limiting and shortsighted IMO. It seems to be a go-to for disparaging Sanders, who doesn't reject Obama's accomplishments, but simply has some other ideas and is honest about the opportunity for improvement. Hillary on the other hand, seems to be associating herself with Obama's legacy purely to score easy points with the base.

What do you think?

Can we dispense with the idiot notion that Bernie is responsible for policing the internet?

The man is running a presidential campaign ffs. He doesn't have time read, let alone deal with, what anonymous people say online. All this "Bernie lost me because he won't put an end to it" nonsense is absurd. He is to date, the only candidate to make a formal call for supporters to be civil. Hillary hasn't. And please spare us the "we don't attack and disparage people online" BS, that would be a laughable fiction.
