i’m really excited for when the debates get down to the last few and the moderators do all they can to ask bernie the dumbest most disingenuous questions to avoid having him take a shit on anyone else

it is actually pretty bad how much old liberals hate bernie. labour is trying to win on a youth turnout but I guess it's not looking great. I don't think sanders can do it either especially in the fucking primaries where tons of young people aren't even going to register in time.

They don’t need to write a memo saying “don’t cover Bernie” for this to be an active strategy.

lolololololololololol


this is some deeply moronic arrogance

do you think that cable news producers and executives see their product as anything other than pseudo "high-minded" entertainment?

do you think self-dealing doesn't exist?

do you think top-down narratives don't exist?

do you think The Big Lie doesn't work?

do you think "Donald J. Trump" is better defined as a person or as an actor?

if Bernie were getting telegenic wall-to-walls in that good lighting "promising ponies" you'd have a nation of people gleefully expecting ponies because their televisions are the only gods they have ever known

ha ha ha it sound like a rage agint machine!!! fuck you

how'd the adult shit work out last time

Marx & Engels wrote:I wouldn't be surprised if he meaningfully benefitted from the media treating him like a normal popular senator who was a runner-up in a previous primary and has a solid base of support in a crowded race.

This is completely unfounded but in my head I'm imagining it might at least make people more open-minded to considering him as a second choice when the field thins out. His base is his base and most people who actively hate him aren't gonna be won over, but there are probably necessary gains to be made among the people in between those extremes. I guess there's still time to do that depending on how Iowa/NH shake out though


literally everything you're doing here is beyond the mental desire if not the mental capacity of nearly the entire american electorate, who votes based on tribal affiliations, media saturation, and prior-confirming hearsay

Sure, though its still more than everyone else in the field thus far

All three have virtually the same amount of network mentions from that list

And? What do I do with that?
Combarieu declares that the songs of birds are not "musical" either, because they are "very difficult to take down in notation." See his Music-Its Laws and Evolution, 155. Will some divine power please create a "Musical" bird to sing the Air for G String in exact Equal Temperament for M. Combarieu?

if i had to guess it's only comparing the highest office that a candidate has held, not for how long they've been in said office

per nate's tweet it's based on highest elected office held, so all senators are given 9.9%

so far this primary goround i've heard more justifications than ever before for supporting someone (mostly biden) based purely off the notion that they are more electable than the others, from people who don't even seem to like the people they think are electable. the everyones-a-pundit era fuckin sucks.
