i read a really good op/ed from a liberal journalist who i really like regarding the "yelling" issue. his basic conclusion was that yes, it's probably sexist, but it may be a problem for enough people that she should look into figuring it out. i wish i could find this one for you.

in an article on vox, ezra klein made the excellent point that hillary has been attacked for so long - by the right, by the media - that she's gotten maybe a bit... lazy? when it comes to dealing with things she perceives as non-issues. she's had to do it for so long and it just never goes away, so why even bother. if it's not the pantsuits, its the hair, or now it's the voice. it's just always something.

also, i saw this earlier and am throwing it in because it's funny and relevant and clearly hyperbolic.

Your Honor, my client, Mr. Popper was very specific on several key points.

If I may,

1) the hook will bring you back
2) he is not lying
3) you can rely on said previous statements

I believe it is only right that you see that this presents a preponderance of evidence and find in his favor.

Got you back, baby

I know you've stated you've decided on this, but this was my two off the top of my head:
#1: Supreme Court nominations. (Well said Chad!)
#2: Missing any existing NATO commitments.

If all you're going to do is go to the ballot box and cast a vote, you have to play the game as it is. Game theory wise, under the current US system, a vote for any 3rd party is simply boosting the signal of everyone else who votes Democrat or Republican.

If you want to actually change the system, the national ballot box isn't the way to do it. The way to change the system is to get out there and organize, and support others who do the same. That's worked many many times in US history, and it will many times more.

Glad there's a Texan who hasn't forgotten her. Here's my prop bet:

By the 2040 Presidential election, there will be at least one Presidential election where a plurality of Texans will vote for a Democratic presidential candidate.

Also, r.e lawn signs: Austin is hardly alone in Texas. Out of the 25 largest cities in the US, six are in Texas. Five of those six voted for Obama in 2012.
