    Just to restate the obvious, Mike, your faction has been so obnoxious in shrilling your intent to destroy Clinton, and everything the Democrats stand for, that simple prudence suggests that she pick up a few insurance votes where they may be found. If that happens to be the non-crazy stupid Right, well at least it’s not crazy stupid.

    If you don’t like that fact, you might want to reconsider your next round of well poisoning.

      I’ve gotta ask: When you write “everything the Democrats stand for” what do you have in mind?

        He’s just providing one more confirmation of the hypothesis that while Dems can easily accommodate right-wingers like, say, the Kagans, left-wingers they absolutely cannot abide.

        Dem hacks, people like Howe here, **want** their party to become something like Mexico’s PRI, and we are watching the finishing stages in that evolution.

    Sure, that’s why he’s repeating DNC talking points smearing Jill Stein as an anti-vaxxer. Clintonova will start WW3 but Trump is just irrational and Jill fails this all important shibboleth. Herd those left wing sheep! All the Democratic party stands for? The status quo? More of the same and harder? The bankers are made whole while the majority of the population slips into neo-serfdom? Go team blue!
