    So then, Kentucky voters should vote for McConnell?

    You don't have to be prepared as long as you're willing to suffer the consequences.

    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    Honestly, I don't know how much that's a good thing and how much it's a bad thing. But it does seem to be true to some extent.

    It's too bad that, other than Gandhi, MLK, and many others, there are no examples from history of dreamers succeeding in making significant changes, despite resistance. Yep. Someone should have told them to limit their vision to "the possible."

    Binary choices seldom address the issues. But you know that.

    Try again.

    Short memories in the Bilge, eh?

    The stakes in 2020 are too high to countenance such petty nonsense.

    And of course, this one:

    That's just from the first page and a half of this thread. There are probably more.

    As long as you continue to manufacture premises, then use them as springboards, I will continue to comment on your posts.
    Oh, by all means, comment away. But you're delusional if you can't see how the posts I quoted are voicing opposition to the idea of a McGrath-Booker primary in Kentucky.
