Ummm.... yeah. The article acknowledges that Jill Stein didn’t matter and that HRC was historically unpopular.

It’s a genuinely dangerous approach to politics. They clearly believe that people owe them votes, and think it’s reasonable to vilify them for not going along. I can’t think of a more effective way of alienating potential voters. And they keep doing it. If we all

You seem to have missed the part where Bernie has pushed the party back to the left.

And yet, WAY more people voted for Gary Johnson than Jill Stein.

Add to which - you're a Harvard guy. Maybe you can explain how Susan Sarandon affected the outcome of the 2016 presidential election when a hundred much more famous and powerful celebrities couldn't.

That should have been the first clue that running another unpopular refugee from the Clinton administration was a bad idea. It's genuinely depressing to see how eager some Democrats are to blame their fellow citizens for the incompetence of Democratic politicians.

Do you actually believe that her going on TV and saying that changed the outcome of the election?

So you acknowledge that nothing you're saying here has anything to do with reality? Because at this point, you're just raging at people who had nothing to do with what happened. Crazy idea - blame the party that cleared the decks for a historically unpopular candidate.

Here’s a hint - Trump wins by even more.

I see. Just math. Have you done the math on what would have happened if all of Gary Johnson’s voters had gone for Trump? You should.

Got it. So if you magically gave all of Jill Stein's votes to Clinton, you believe Clinton would have won?

Wait - you actually believe Susan Sarandon stating her political views on TV shifted the outcome of the 2016 election????

And no one's saying conversion is to be spat upon. Given a choice between the candidate who realized they were wrong and the candidate who got it right to begin with, I'll always prefer the latter. As usual, you're arguing in genuinely bad faith.

There's a demonstrable difference between someone who finally realized how genuinely evil the GOP is, and someone who knew from the beginning. Has literally nothing to do with any of those issues you brought up. Happy to acknowledge Bernie has been wrong on many things.

What's truly disturbing, Joy, is that as someone in the news media, you absolutely know you're misrepresenting those situations. That said, though, you're sidestepping the point. The issue was simple - 1/

Hillary played Russian roulette with this country's future and lost, and you're angry at someone who refused to give her even more bullets for the gun.
