8. It says a lot about us as a society....

 

When the thought of electability is worthy of discussion when the other side is the republicans. It just amazes me that tens of millions will vote republican.

13. Attacking Democratic voters' intelligence or taste

is not a winning strategy, you should understand. Apparently, you do not.

A big fail is what this post is.
