Yeah, I agree it is pretty horsefeathers up that some people think that way. I think it's a sign of the times. For a lot of people, allegiance to a political party is like rooting for your favorite sports franchise or team. You don't always like what your team is doing, but you'll never horsefeathering support the other team or root for them to do well. It's a horsefeathers analogy because SPORTS =/= POLITICS, but that's how many, many people view it now.

I think D. Jones will actually win, and a lot of voters are repulsed by R. Moore and his behavior. Then again, it's Alabama so you never know...

I used to try to always see the viewpoint of both sides, but I really cannot put myself in conservative shoes anymore. I really don't know why any middle or lower class person would be on board with this tax plan other than pure ignorance.

I know, I know...we all want to move on. Many want HRC to simply go away, never to be be heard from again, but as I opined a few months ago when posting a '16 election coverage critique, no matter one's bias, this horsefeathers [who's covering what] is important.



Move along, nothing more to see here.

The two are getting similar media attention, and that is ridiculous. Recreational outrage is plague.

Lots of things get media coverage. This is a weird tangent to take here on something that's very unrelated.
