    You're flailing.  Not a pretty sight.

    •  Well, then you might update the diary to (0+ / 0-)

      reflect that. Your only disqualification of him was his age. "otherwise I should want to vote for him to be our next president."

      Nope. No mention of "unless, of course, we found out during campaigning that he was a wife beater, kicked puppies, was a racist or a pedophile." Reading what you wrote, you make it sound like you would have voted for him on the spot.

      Or would you just vote for him, then complain later that you should have researched him more?

      I'd like to start a new meme: "No means no" is a misnomer. It should be "Only 'Yes' means yes." Just because someone doesn't say "No" doesn't mean they've given consent. If she didn't say "Yes", there is no consent.

        you have no command of the subjunctive, or else you would've understood the very line you quoted.

        This much said, Edward Snowden shows more respect for the United States Constitution than either the current holder of the office of President of the United States or his recent predecessors.  So he's already winning by default.

      alternate parallel universe in which, having expressed an opinion, one is so duty-bound to maintain it forever, subsequent evidence or insights be damned, that one never thinks of questioning it.

      That would explain a lot . . . about you.
