Oh Look, An Actual Piece of Informative Political Reporting

"The real campaign is startlingly simple: it is the Obama team's fanatical pursuit, behind the scenes, diagram by diagram, plan by plan, of what politicos call the 'base vote.' These are the Democratic leaners who will be deciding not between Obama and Romney, but between voting for Obama and not voting at all."

YES. This is also why the first debate was so damaging at the time…

I desperately want to understand the urge not to vote for Obama because you believe he hasn't presided in a sufficiently leftward fashion. Like, I feel as if there must be some complex but ultimately philosophically sound reasoning there. But every time I go over it in my head, I just end up thinking, No, that's fucking stupid.

@Moff And yet your clunky, weary sentences don't really do it for me either.

@my_piru: My clunky, weary sentences are an acquired taste.

@Moff When I was young, I'd sneak reads of your sentences on my dad's Gawker account when he was away for the weekend.

Pretty sure it resulted in me throwing up.

@Multiphasic: THEN I HAVE DONE MY JOB.
