Hmmm, right down the middle. Yeah, right. Does it at least help explain my reluctance to engage in political discussion on Facebook? ;-) (Hat tip to J.E.) https://8values.github.io/results.html?e=52.4&d=47.3&g=63.5&s=64.6

I want to believe we could do better than Trump and Clinton. There ARE other choices. Here's one of 'em.

The only "wasted vote" is one not cast.

Whoever you end up backing, PLEASE VOTE TODAY!

Thank you!

A recent New York Times article brought to my attention by Robert Harris claims to reveal how Facebook sees your politics. Now you all know how excited I am to share my politics AND read about yours right here on this social network, so I dutifully followed the instructions to learn I was... drum roll, please ... "Very Liberal." I haven't decided whether this tests my faith in the credibility of Facebook, the Times or both. BUT! I am interested in how YOU come out, if you're up for sharing, so here are some instructions:

Settings > Ads > "Visit Ad Preferences" button > select "Lifestyle and culture" from the "Interests" section (may have to select "More" - I did) > Find the first instance of "U.S. Politics (xxxx)" in your list (may have to hit "See More" multiple times - I ended up on the sixth dozen, which leads me to believe this is a very weak guess on the Facebook Ads folks' part)

The "xxxx" is supposed to reflect Facebook's view of your political bent, restricted to the quite-not-grey-area labels of "Conservative," "Moderate" or "Liberal..." well, with the potential of a "Very" qualifier in front of it, I suppose.

What do you think, folks?

So every time a chant starts up during Hillary's speech, it's to drown out some other Bernie chant, right?

Every friendly face in my timeline bitching about sitting through the RNC looks to have about a 0% chance of voting for Trump in the general, so...man, I have no idea who's FORCING y'all to watch it, but if you'd like me to try to speak to them on your behalf to get you out of it, I'd be happy to give it a shot.

But seriously, let's get Lessig2016 in the debates too. Why not? He's certainly gotta be polling as well as Lincoln Chafee (Link to "Larry Lessig for President 2016")

God help us if they pick a "viral" question tonight - OK, I'm done now - watching, no tweeting #DemDebate

You know I'm not much for posting about politics here, but I did just see the Democrats debate, and all I can say is: WOW! What a commanding performance! She really showed why she's been frontrunner, well, pretty much since Obama won the last one. Email, Benghazi, none of it matters - she's Teflon and even if there was something to ANY of that, none of it would ever stick to her. She's unstoppable! Ol' Joe is probably scared out of running after that masterful performance where she thrust and parried and nobody could land a shot on her. Sadly, there's no chance for Bernie, not to mention those other three also-rans. I sure would have liked to see Larry Lessig in the debate tonight, though. But hell, we might as well inaugurate her right now; the nomination is clearly hers and the Republicans (and others) have absolutely no chance. RUN HILL RUN

You know I'm not much for posting about politics here, but I did just see the Democrats debate, and all I can say is: What a sad display. All the chickens came home to roost in one night and she definitely is feeling the effects of the constant drip-drip-drip of questionably legal actions, email, Benghazi, her lack of anything to point to while Secretary of State really, an entitled sense of being above the law and an almost constant, sometimes baffling stream of dissembling. Even on the debate stage, she couldn't help but rack up the Pinocchios. Now's the best time for a weary Democratic caucus to look to...Bernie? One of the three others? Probably the opportune time for Joe to come in and "save the day" for the establishment. I sure would have liked to see Larry Lessig in that debate tonight, though. STICK A FORK IN HILL, SHE'S DONE.

Sure, I'd vote for @lessig. Don't know if I'd give him money, though.

I have great love for all of you, but if you're watching the GOP debate ironically or so you can tweet how awful what you're watching is and how much you hate every dude on stage an how much pain it's causing you AND there's zero chance you're voting Republican in 2016 or for the rest of your life...dude, WHY? (And I know that this is massive hypocrisy coming from a guy watching WWE Smackdown instead, but at least WWE bills itself as "entertainment")

WARNING: POLITICAL POST FOLLOWS
It took the Obama administration over two years (and almost 168,000 signatures) to respond to the petition calling for an immediate pardon of Edward Snowden. As you might imagine, I find the response... somewhat lacking.

When president says "they're...giving me my own account," do you wonder who the "they" are who tell the president what he can and can't do?
5.11.14 01:15 
When @CNNPolitics shows a race where the top two are separated by 0.3%, shouldn't they show third, fourth and fifth if they're all above 1%?
5.11.14 01:04 
You know how CNN shows a race that has a difference of about 0.5% between the top two, and you can add up their votes and see that only about 95% of the vote is on the screen? I wonder why they can't use a little more screen space to put the third place cat up there. Is it because they don't want people thinking that there were other choices and that they do matter?

Polls closed an hour ago so this status is mostly meaningless ("I voted")
