Primary Stupid

What drives me nuts about primary season is that I see too many people who I normally think are quite smart making transparently stupid arguments about their candidates. Some admit they're in the tank (better!), some pretend they're just dispensing wisdom from on high, floating above the fray, but either way there's just so much stupid that I'm tempted to open the vodka bottle as soon as I fire up the browser in the morning. No I don't actually do that.

Ask yourself, "will this argument actually convince anybody?" or at least "will this argument actually motivate anybody?" If the answer is "no" to both of those questions then I'm not sure what the point is.
