    "You embarrass me," said Shadow, smiling. Then Shadow took his penis out and picked Cream up. "Let me charge up for a super ejaculation!" Shadow laid Cream down on the ground and then took his penis with him, which was already huge and shaking with sex energy, and found Cream's Piggy Bank, which was full of coins and dollars and things to save up for money, so she could buy what she wanted when she had enough inside it. Shadow took it and using his muscular penis, smashed a hole right through the piggy bank so now it was sitting on top of his penis like a hat. Shadow's penis looked like it belonged in a fashion show.

    that power struggle is almost as godlike as Putin Bush.

    _

    my friend still has foolish hope that Sanders is going to win the nomination. He was telling me about how Sanders was gonna make it a contested convention and win it there. Or if that didn't work, that Hillary for sure was going to get indicted by the FBI because the FBI dude is a hardcore republican.

    She isn't gonna get indicted nor is she gonna lose the nomination to Sanders in a convention. Sanders is dead, and he just can't accept that fact. Literally the one thing that could let sanders be the nominee is the one thing that isn't gonna happen. Even the communist professor who abhors Hillary has said that the best they can do is retroactively classify material from the emails and get her like that. in the end, all that would do is make Hillary have to counter sue and fight bogus claims in court, and that wouldn't' be enough anyway. the fact that somebody like Hillary is still the front runner for the democratic party, with virtually all the democratic establishment support just goes to show how fucked up this country is.

    i tell him that if Sanders was really about the political revolution, he would usurp votes in the primary and run as an independent. My friend says he can't do that and wouldn't do that because that would let Trump win.....

    the irony is that revolution carries risk, but its obvious Sanders and his supporters are a bunch of do nothings who talk but wont' put their money where their mouth is.

    I feel bad for Sanders supporters. I kinda like Sanders but things were so stacked against him from jump street. So much of the presumption behind Hildawgs nomination seemed artificial. I remember both SNL and The Daily Show ending sketches where the inevitability of Hilary's nomination was the big punch line. I do recall something about Viacom having strong Clinton ties /foilhat

    I pretty regularly read Slate that has pushed Clinton pretty hard, and just the other day I finally saw the big Hilary SuperPAC banner ad at the top.

    To further digress, its sad to see The Daily Show become so irrelevant during a presidential election year. Thank god for Larry Wilmore.

    Fun Fact: Palin's track record in Alaska is SIGNIFICANTLY better than Fiorina's with HP.

    Take that as you will.

    My apologies for not contributing more; at this point I'm surprised people can take any part of this seriously. Hopefully this is the year where the two main parties are in such disarray that they let third party candidates into the debates. There is nothing in two party nonsense that resembles a serious effort to move the country forward.

    Fiorina is a great example of how pitiful the field of prominent female Republicans is. She's also failed to win election twice.

    Hillary had the most heavy-handed media support of any candidate. Every scandal was just a joke to laugh off, and she's totally been a 100% Democrat since, like, forever! Only a misogynist would doubt her! The reality is, she bought off/intimidated all of the other top choices and expected to be the only serious candidate after the first few states. Sanders was an unexpected bump that she needed to funnel all of her media connections to beat; ever notice that she would start winning, attack Trump/Republicans, then run back to the race when Sanders started pulling off upsets? Clinton wanted the primary to be free so she could get an extra 6 months to build up for the general election.

    Which speaks volumes about how flawed she is as a general election candidate. What is she going to do in a debate against Trump? Sit there for 3 hours then cry to Tumblr? She won't be able to interrupt him like Sanders, and Trump's going to have the entire GOP's laundry list of anti-Hillary rhetoric at his fingertips instead of Bernie tiptoeing around the big issues with her. Trump beats her in name recognition, though to be fair a lot of it isn't positive.

    I think the fact that the choices are going to be an obviously bought politician, and one of the rich guys who bought her is a pretty fucking sad state of affairs. I may be wrong, but I don't think it's ever been this obvious that the system is broken.

    Here's my new theory of how the general election will play out:

    Option A: Hillary v. Trump. (The likely scenario): $hillary barely squeaks by in the polls because enough people won't want Trump in office due to his gung-ho attitude. She continues to keep everything pro-establishment and fucks over the American people until 2020 when her term has proven to be an utter shitfest and someone will rise up and own her in the Democratic primaries. She may be impeached early.

    Option B: Hillary v. Trump (The just as likely as the first scenario): Trump runs with Bernie's attacks against Hillary's character/trustworthiness (mixed in with his own volatile attitude) and shits on her in the election. That coupled with enough Bernie supporters who write-in Bernie's name or vote independent, or even the ones who were on the fence but will vote Trump in the general election since Bernie is done in this scenario. Post election is a huge mystery. Early impeachment likely, potential assassination possible.

    Option C: Sanders v Trump (Very unlikely but hear me out): Sanders convinces the superdelegates to switch over to him at the convention assuming they wouldn't want to risk Hillary getting indicted during the general election and handing the election to Trump. If she gets indicted before the DNC convention, that's all the better for Sanders. The superdelegates love Hillary, but they might have to swallow their pride and go with Bernie if they see Hillary continue to shit the bed with scandals and Trump becoming a better choice in the eyes of the general American public.

    I really hope for option C, but if option A or B happens I suppose I'll just watch the fire.

    There's only one hope for Republicans now.
    John-
    0020710001456781276_filepicker.jpg

    And, surprisingly, Bernie managed to win Indiana. In terms of "real" delegates, he's only trailing Hillary by about 300. He needs to follow through on the "winning over superdelegates" thing and pull off some huge wins, but him winning isn't actually impossible.

    Here's the remaining primary schedule: http://www.uspresidentialelectionnews.com/2016-presidential-primary-schedule-calendar/
    Some notes as it pertains to the candidates:
    -If Kasich can win 7 of the nine states, he's immediately viable for a contested convention without a rules change. Many of these states have closed or mixed primaries, which is a boon to Kasich. If anti-Trump movements can band together in these states, a Kasich upset can happen.
    -The next set of states is a mixed bag for Bernie. Guam, Virgin Islands, and Puerto Rico are the kinds of places he does well in, and North Dakota is a caucus state. West Virginia and Kentucky are Clinton-favored states and in the early half of this set, which could be some insurmountable losses for Sanders. If his Washington State performance is anything to go by, Sanders should get Oregon pretty cleanly. The big question marks are New Jersey and California, which combined are over 600 delegates and most of what is left.

    It does matter because again, 5minutes pointed out the entire mathematics of remaining delegates. It's important to take note of it because there are unlikely but clear scenarios in which Bernie can still clinch the nomination, and even Kasich somehow being able to take it to a contested convention (the latter being a much more unlikely scenario than the former). Besides, there was a lot of serious rigging going on in NY. People turned away from polls, independents not being able to vote, and also the combined lack of media covering Sanders in a positive light compared to $hillary being a media darling. It's all a setup, yet despite this, Bernie's growth continues to climb week by week in terms of people gravitating towards his campaign and his message. On top of that, there's always holding out hope that the FBI decides to indict Hillary and puts her in a cell where she belongs.

    If the Hillary gets indicted, that'll mean that we have the potential of both candidates running for the presidency while having an active trial.
