Hadn't noticed this excellent fantasy writer before - Tom Pappalardo on Daily Kos

Obama Has Won the First Delegate Battle But Will Lose the War to Bernie
By Tom Pappalardo

Starts with "It is very likely there is a compelling political reason for the FBI’s delay to issuing a richly deserved indictment for Hillary Clinton." ... "In the end Bernie will get the Dem nomination or run as a 3rd party candidate. Either way Bernie wins the presidency and America wins a shot to be free of rampant political corruption. Hillary will be indicted and that will kill her run for president. "

This may be the most well written fantasy I've read on Daily Kos. Like all fantasy stories, it just isn't true.

1. Wait...didn't Kos say that there'll be no anti-Hillary diaries tolerated? So how did this one

slip through? Using an image of Obama and Bernie rather than Hillary, and not reading the diary might have allowed it to slip through Quality Control there, maybe?

4. The Hillary hate is strong today on Daily Kos

Here's another from today:

A brutal, bitter choice awaits Sanders' supporters: selling out for the lesser evil
by Left of what

Yeah, sorry for the “brutal” in the title. Couldn’t resist what seems to be common clickbait here.

I live in Massachusetts, so should I allow myself the luxury of writing in Bernie, I’m pretty sure Clinton 2.0 will win anyway. I am truly struggling with this. On one hand I REALLY don’t want Trump, aka Hillary’s November Firewall, to win, but I despise her. She may be qualified, but she is not worthy.

If I lived in a red state, I’m sure I would feel a lot more pressure to take my medicine and vote for the candidate Molly Ball says “remains essentially centrist in orientation—a candidate friendly to the party’s donor class and elites, well-connected with its institutions, and incrementalist in her approach to policy.” But make no mistake, it would be painful.

ONLY the specter of the most vile candidate in history can save her ass - if indeed it does.

2. I'd call that pretty bad fantasy writing.

Good fantasy writing maintains a sense of verisimilitude.

3. Maintaining the suspension of disbelief is important in all creative writing.

He probably missed that class because he was studying for the remedial math exam.
