  •  Uh, (none)
    except that the turds used it in a completely hypocritical way. They could give a shit about what Kerry said, they were just pandering to their base.
    •  And to whom (none)
      was Kerry pandering, or is Mary Cheney the only lesbian he knows?  Come 'on -- TWO played this game.
    •  That doesn't matter (3.66)
      If it works.  

      We all need to get over the idea that being smarter (since we fancy ourselves as such) and knowing more facts means we win.  No, the perception-based votes and the ignorant votes count just as much as our  votes, and there are more of them.  And then, when we lose, we compound the problem by bitching and complaining because we think we're smart and they're stupid, and that we should have won because of our special, different reality-based and well-informed votes.

      That's how I feel about it.  I spent some time in the elite ivory tower and even there, it doesn't matter if you're smarter than the next guy, it just matters how well you play the game.

        That was a bit of an off-topic rant but I had to put it down before I forgot it.. 'cause I keep running into diaries around here going.. "these idiots!  these morons!  the facts say ___!"  Yeah, OK, and..?  Clearly, it's not sufficient to be right on the merits.
