1. Very few people watch a foreign policy debate. Of those that do, very few bother to read the fact checking done afterward. Therefore, it pays to lie during a debate and look engaged and tough while doing it. Did you think this was about substance? 2. A poll every three days is worthless. Who cares what the pulse of the people is twenty, ten, six, five, four, three, two weeks before the only poll that really matters? Most of those people are lying about voting on election day. Even the "likely voters" are full of shit about being likely to vote. 3. If your guy is so great and utterly superior, why is the margin between the two so slim? Answer: he isn't. Deal with it. You lose your soul when you let your passion prevent you from being honest. 4. Whatever comes into your email inbox, or is posted on your favorite blog site, or is spoken on your favorite partisan pseudo-newsy radio or television station, in the next couple weeks is UTTER BULLSHIT!!!! Don't be such a fucking gullible fuck and drink it like a fucking retard. Yes, I said retard, you fucking retard. 5. I am a pretentious, pedantic, sarcastic asshole when I am fed up with the bullshit. Fair warning. .
