    by all standards, theirs are cleaner than ours are.

    What are you doing to fight the dangerous and counterproductive error of treating dirtbag terrorist criminals as though they were comic book supervillains? I can't believe we still have to argue this shit, let alone on Daily Kos.

      they really aren't.  As much as the GOP has pulled shenannigans, the Democrats were able to spend a $1 billion in an effective campaign that got out the vote and got out the message in a reasonably even manner.  The opposition in Venezuela is far more hamstrung by systematic issues than either party is in the US.  Frankly, I think you could use with a little more research into what the human rights community says here.

      Touch all that arises with a spirit of compassion
