Ehh... the DNC doesn’t care (they are hard on 'vote blue no matter who') and the MSM likes messy drama and Warren provides them very little.

Also, the real irony is Sanders backers who (understandably) complain about erasure when they are lumped together as a group with the bros, even as they themselves erase Warren supporters by lumping them all in together with the wealthy liberals.

Remind me though, where did Nader get us by running as an independent in 2000? He certainly didn’t do anything useful to move the country leftward, or impact policies. Sanders, if nothing else, has already managed to help change the conversation in the democratic party about a number of issues. Read more

Whelp...the homeless Splinter bros have succeeded in colonizing The Root’s political commentaries. I absolutely hate the way that they always manage to hijack the comments’ thread. Read more

Absolutely agreed here. I have bled in kinja comment threads fighting the disinformation around Warren! (At least if you count the blood on the tips of my fingers after typing so much). Read more

I’d buy that it was fake except it seems like every fourth or fifth letter is “My partner has a particular thing that gets them off, but is aggressively disinterested in finding a workaround for the things that get me off.  How can I give them a different personality?”

So the second letter is basically asking what’s happening when a guy who said he loves you but who has a girlfriend and at least two other mistresses stops touching you except to let you give him oral sex every so often? I . . . really hope that this letter is fake, because otherwise the degree of low self-esteem on Read more

But as far as cleaning it out and using water, seams a little silly when a new water bottle is only a few bucks. Or some of the Read more
