do people not understand that logic doesn't work on voters???

what works is rhetoric, propaganda, repeated 1000 times, in digital ads and other media

read Lakoff. Please. Read any cognitive scientist.

please can we grow up.

2. How so? Bc he has funding, appeals to a much wider swath of voters

 

Beyond the blue bubble. Bernie promises pie in the sky stuff w/o any viable way of making it happen. And now the new bernie talking point is we should just be glad he's talking the talk. Nevermind that he can't walk the walk. Even if Bloomberg is Republican light, I'll take it bc he's prochoice, wants to take us back to the Paris treaty, pro gun reform, etc. Is he the most progressive candidate? No. Is he perfect? No. But I don't care about perfection. He has the means and the machine to beat trump. I'm almost there. Just waiting to see how super tuesday pans out.

3. Please, can we grow up?

 

This is the quadrennial Democratic silly season. Every four years Democrats go completely crazy, lose all contact with reality and civility, and try to decide on a Democratic candidate for president. The actual "growing up" will come shortly after the next Democratic President is inaugurated. For Star Trek aficionados it very closely resembles Spock's "Amok Time".

5. All voters are stupid I guess, just waiting to be beaten into believing by RW verbal tactics.

 

This is what my late Nan would call a pants load.
