Response to sinkingfeeling (Reply #35)

40. My consolation on that point

The ones that "prefer the robot," as you put it, are a small (though very vocal) minority with seemingly one issue and one only on their minds. They vigorously (almost nastily) defend their positions, and at least on the primaries board (which I refuse to post in until and if it gets serious), support one of two candidates, both of which seem to enjoy Papal infallibility in some circles.

I have been with Biden, Franken and Obama on occasion, and you described them accurately. Not once did I see them make any advances to anyone, male or female, and nor did anyone, male or female, express discomfort at their conduct, during or after. That the primaries board seems to have lost its collective head over a Joe Biden accuser five or more years after a supposed incident in a very public arena seems like a fire that is deliberately being stoked. What Joe Biden is doing on the primaries board, since he is not a candidate yet in the first place, is a mystery to me, anyway. Sure, there is speculation. There is speculation about Hillary running again, too. Might as well include Pat Paulsen.

Doesn't ANYBODY posting on that board care one whit about POLICY? I mean beyond the usual tax the rich, etc. Remember climate change, foreign policy, military policy, education, trade, agriculture, race relations, criminal justice, the Supreme Court, affordable health care, student debt and affordable housing? No, all there is to read is about whether or not Joe Biden apologized sufficiently for something he never thought he did, and whether this candidate or that candidate spoke to 500 people in Pascagoula and whether or not they had broccoli for breakfast. Too bad the moderators and/or administrators of DU can't make "get a life" one of the requirements to post on that board instead of "thou shalt state a preference or thou shalt not post."
