Before I criticize, let me allow that this may be satire and I'm too thick to have properly decoded it.

If not, though... wow. I guess we can add this post to the tradition begun by Orwell and perpetuated by Glenn Reynolds: "Pacifism is objectively pro-fascist", opposition to the invasion of Iraq is "objectively pro-Saddam", and now voting for Jill Stein is objectively pro-Putin.

I have no dog in this fight; I don't vote in the US. But seriously man, if this is meant in earnest it is really regrettable.

Yes, and there's a little Alien in your head that controls you.....

I'm with Picador. Every time change of a sort is possible, there are always paranoic voices, smart and interesting paranoic voices who are too afraid of change to follow their own convictions and become it. They always muddy the water by clinging to the old paradigm long enough to pull us all back.

Why? Too many connections to the source of the fascination. I know, I did the same thing last time.

Who really benefits from doing nothing new? Betcha. House wins again.

This really isn't looking like a paranoid theory anymore... it really seems quite likely that Putin was using Stein all along and she's just too naive to get it.
