33. an espresso might be more useful
Are you actually unaware of talking in circles? It amazes me.

You're the one who expressed certainty that Bush didn't win; it's not up to me to provide whatever you might consider a "solid basis" that he did. Of course I can't compel you to defend your dogma; I can only scoff. I generally don't have problems with people who viscerally believe that Bush lost but don't claim to know it.

This country is left center. Most people are liberal.

That may be true in your "sociological imagination," but the real world out there is, at best, a lot more complicated. If you ask people whether they are liberals, liberals are clearly in the minority. That's not the only relevant datum, but when someone whistles right past it, I wonder.

Sir, it is confusing to see you keep propping up a regime which has stolen elections, started illegal wars, committed torture, wiretapped, on and on. Why do you continue to support this?

I don't. It is confusing to see you keep making shit up about me. What's that about? No, actually, I don't care.

If we're going to play dueling psychobabble, then, maybe it is too painful for you to consider that we might actually have elected a regime that started illegal wars, committed torture, wiretapped, on and on.

You are carrying on a fake conversation with the person you imagine me to be. I know that isn't the standard point of a "sock puppet," but I'm trying to startle you into glimpsing the weirdness of your projections about me.

If there is voter suppression, then of course, there will be less votes for the exit polls.

What does that mean, "there will be less votes for the exit polls"? What is a vote for the exit polls? If you can't make a single point clearly, then we can't get very far.
