Republicans have one path to victory in this election, and it's called False Equivalency. They can't deny Trump is horrible; it's on tape. So they want voters to believe Hillary is just as bad, and in pursuit of that goal they have a very powerful ally: lazy people. People who like to say, 'They're all bad.' 'Cause when you say that, you don't have to do any homework."

Noam Chomsky rules, awesome quotes. Bill Maher did well, too.

As so often is the case on patnet, the headline needs some work. I suggest

"The laziness behind behind false moral equivalency"

If that headline is too hoity-toity, perhaps a more low-brow(?) fallback could be

"Bill Maher quotes Noam Chomsky. You won't believe what happens next."

Eating bad clams and getting hit by a car are not at all the same, but they both suck.

True Blurtman. But Trump has crossed the line when it comes to civility. He is very uncivilized, and will introduce and uncivilized way of behavior and talk if he is elected. America will just not be as nice a place to live if Trump is elected. Hillary is a diplomat. Whatever she believes, she is trained to compromise. Hopefully, Bill, who put no boots on the ground in 8 years, will keep her in check.

Uncivilized is dealing death to women and children in the Middle East.

Yeah, sorry, causing hundreds of thousands of deaths and displacement it a bit worse that talking about how when you're a big shot, women will let you grab their pussy.

Yeah, sorry,

I wish you didn't have so much to be sorry for.

The fact, not opinion, that Hillary was a big driver in removing Ghaddafyi (to the point she had aides make up a brag sheet and timeline about her efforts) is a bigger deal than talking about Pussy Grabbing, is something for you to work out.

I'm embarrassed for liberals who raked Bush through the coals for Iraq and Drone Attacks, but let Hillary skate on Libya and Syria.
