      completely dismisses or ignores what I just said.

      Press coverage matters. Immensely.  And the Capitol press corps wants that story.  They like drama, because it increases their web traffic and print readership, and increases viewership for TV news and opinion programs such as NY Now, Capitol Tonight, and Inside City Hall.  The more an item is discussed in that universe, the more it ends up in more mainstream news and TV reporting as well.  This isn't something that would play out in a vacuum.

      You seem to be forgetting that the news is much more a business today, and requires sensationalized stories to draw readership/viewership to survive.  This would be one of those kind of stories.

      You also seem to be forgetting who turns out for primary votes - largely those who are more engaged in politics in the first place.

      You are welcome to your opinion on the matter, but I don't think you've thought it out very well.

          immature, low information responses to well reasoned arguments doesn't really say much about your debate skills.  Clearly, defending your positions isn't really possible, and you're well aware of that.

          I'd tell you to quit while you're behind, but we both know that's not going to happen.  So I suppose it's best for me to bow out instead simply to save myself the frustration of arguing with someone who chooses to be obstinate.

          Have a good evening.
