Bernie & the DNC

So Bernie Sanders' supporters are planning a march in Philadelphia "against the DNC."

Here's what I don't get - Sanders has for his entire political career been a democratic socialist, running as an independent. Then this year he decides to run for the Democratic party nomination. Now that he has, his supporters now want to change the Democratic party.

Doesn't that seem a little bit disingenuous? Why isn't he out forming his own party, or working with a party that more aligns to his goals, rather than trying to become something he's not, and then his supporters are trying to take over a party they don't identify with?

I get it - the Democratic party could be more progressive. I even agree. But by the same token, there are far more progressive parties out there (Green, etc.). Why are you trying to change something you're not?

It's like, hey, I'm a vegetarian, but I'm cool with ordering salad in your steak place. Sorry about my friends trying to shut you down and change you into a vegan joint. My bad.

Rules lawyering

Rules Lawyer: I want to do X.
Me: You can't do X.
RL: Show me in the rules where it says I can't do X.
Me: It says you have to do X+Y as a single action.
RL: But it doesn't say I *can't* do just X.
Me: ...
RL: You're making me very annoyed!

If game rules don't list everything you *can't* do, then that means you can do anything? What's the point of having rules then?

P.S. Someone else later found where it specifically says you can't do X without doing Y. Just like the rules said in the first place.

I won!

I guess I done good :)

  • Thu, 01:57: Disappointed in Sanders' interview. It reinforces why I think Hillary's foreign affairs experience makes her the better candidate.

Clinton's lead

I don't post this to be negative about Sanders (as I've said repeatedly, I like him), but to point out some math that makes sense to me:

"For Bernie to win, he has to prove he can win majorities beyond the angry white male demographic. He has consistently and massively outspent Hillary in diverse states, but has failed to dent her lead among those groups. Until that changes, the outcome of this primary is not in doubt."

If anyone wants to start using Lyft (cheaper than Uber and more fun!), use my code for $50 in ride credit when you sign up - "ALANISBEST" :D

  • Tue, 21:04: It's a shame everyone hates Hillary so much. She's so unrelatable. She's so far right that she's winning the Democratic nomination. So sad.
