Oh dear God. Some Clinton supporters are actually arguing that the decisions by the RBC on Saturday -- to allot each state half-votes because of their illegal primaries -- amounts to "worse than slavery". Because half a vote is less than 3/5 of a vote. And slaves were counted as 3/5 of a person. (Actually, there's such a thing as "punishment" for "breaking rules". Not that it's ever popular.)
There's so much, so deeply offensive about even writing that where other people can see it, that I didn't know where to start. An arcane procedural dispute totally internal to a political party is akin to a system that killed tens of millions, and reduced the survivors to things? The mind boggles at where to go on that.
Or, my mind boggles at where to go. My girlfriend, after I read that aloud to her, tried to one-up Clinton supporters: "This parking ticket is even worse than the time I had to stick a coathanger in my uterus for an abortion!"
Your own inappropriate similes in comments. Or tell me why I'm an awful person.
