@darkeyehails: Yeah, in Poland it's much simpler as well, but we end up with very similar compromises.

@darkeyehails:I wrote a long stupid post extolling the virtues of strategic voting, but ultimately decided that it's better to make a simple pragmatic point: you're not going to influence the result of the next primaries to a significant extent by refusing to vote for an insufficiently suitable candidate in the elections. Primary voters will always vote for the person they would like to vote for in the elections proper, period. You'd be justified in saying that they should also vote strategically, but I think that's not possible. The responsibility in the primaries is much more spread out and it's much easier to just vote with your conscience and let the chips fall where they may. Also, primary voters are much more opinionated and confident in their preferences.

@shorap: I agree. I like how Tom Nichols (a very anti-Trump former Republican) in a recent interview bemoaned the Democratic tendency for ideological purity tests for candidates. Liberal-leaning people who won't vote for the Domecratic candidate because they are not "engergized" by the primary choice will deserve all they get if Trump is reelected.

@liquiddragon:

He will be impeached 100%, but he won't be removed during the trial in the Senate unless something big happens in the interim. Althrough the biggest thing on the horizon is the publication of Barr's bullshit investigation into the origins of the Russia's involvement in the 2016 election. He is completely partisan (maybe even more than the AG in my country at the moment) and is willing to say anything with the authority of the DoJ behind him.

As far as Trump's reelection chances, I'm going to say the effect will probably even out. The danger I see is that he will be emboldened after the acquital in the Senate.

You have a genuine crime syndicate at the highest level of your executive branch and you're worried that investigation into their criminal behaviour furthers the divisions? Maybe let's talk about what ignoring it does to a society.

It's not really about getting any new bombshells, the investigation attempts to establish a clear timeline and who knew what was going on. The fact that Trump attemted to blackmail/extort Ukraine was obvious from the release of the memo.

All the theatrical doubts from the R's since then are purely for the benefit of Fox-addled masses, to ease their cognitive dissonance.

Looks awesome. Also a nice gesture from Valve to give it away to anyone who bought/will buy an Index or even just the controllers (like I did).

Oh, it's free for the controllers alone as well? That's awesome, as I was considering buying those for my original vive. 50€ off is a definite incentive.
