Nice Freudian slip, there.

Democrats have been fighting Democratic values long before Sanders voice came into play.

Really nice!

I wasn't asking you.

You may as well

prepare handouts containing the predetermined questions and answers, and distribute them before anyone even sits down. That seems to fit your criterion just as well, and wouldn't be fraudulent at all.

Alternatively, you could do a Putin, have a secretary record the questions, and schedule a follow-up session a couple of days hence, during which answers could be given, provided the questions were deemed worthy of an answer.

Or, hell, fuck it: Just put her behind a $2,700/question paywall.

Point me to any post of mine

in support of your statement. You can't.

ETA: Still waiting.

ETA: Still waiting, and not expecting a reply anytime soon, because you haven't got one that won"t make you look like a complete idiot.

I can't recall a particular moment of realization.

It was more of a process that started in Catholic elementary school and Jesuit secondary.

I spent my post-college years until my late twenties as an agnostic, but really didn't give the question much thought, which to me is what agnosticism is really all about.

It probably wasn't until about the age of 30 that I began to understand that there had to exist a god or not, and the more I looked around me for an answer to that, the more I became convinced that there wasn't any evidence for one, but piles of evidence that religious structure is a handy way to keep people in line.

There's always bound to be

vociferous disagreement among people of a similar political bent. Please don't let that deter you.
