(Well then, how about five hours and you remember to bring your own water bottle?)

    If so, I will be delighted to tip my hat and retract any hint of aspersion.

    (Does anyone agree that the extra 'that' I've reddened makes the sentence slightly clearer, albeit less grammatical? Perhaps parenthetical '(that)' as shown is best.)
    Of course I won't swear to what I would do, or would have done, if my life and experience were quite different from what it demonstrably was.

    Here's an example.
    If I lived in a purplish state like Georgia, where my vote might count, I'd have a very different attitude.
    Probably.

    That's never happened, so I'm not entirely sure what I would do.

    It's like asking me "Suppose the sky had always been orange, what would you do?".
    I dunno, it's never happened is the only response I can think of.

    That's honest.
    Tom
    Why not?

    It's easy. If I lived in GA, all other things being relatively equal, I can say I would have unreservedly voted for Biden (or hypothetical GGG) in lieu of staying home.

    Principles...pretty easy when you think about it.

    I don't see any principles here.

    I'll vote Democratic no matter what isn't a principle, in my opinion.

    Yes I am. Which is why I can see your flaming strawman aways away.

    Some posters are very good at making every thread about them.
    This thread is about Jen Psaki.
    I can only say that she is very smart, very articulate, impressively well prepared and that all those attributes make her HOT (IMHO of course).
