I think the public would mostly hold them accountable, and in any case getting rid of the filibuster is a huge risk, they might want it one day, after all. But they could undeniably still do a great deal of damage. I just don't know what I can do, short of moving to Ohio, to prevent it. Not that I see them winning in 2016 as likely, no matter how much people dislike Hillary.

If it was really a threat, Ginsburg should resign, if she's as unhealthy as you claim. Anything else would be wildly irresponsible.

Then, I live in Northern California, and we have tons of Muslims here, our Republicans are reasonable people, and every fifth car is a Tesla. So maybe I am too far removed from the threat to take it seriously.

Webb (mostly) dropped out of the race today.

Former Virginia Senator Jim Webb will no longer seek the Democratic presidential nomination.
Mr Webb has said on Tuesday that he is considering how he might "remain as a voice" in the campaign, possibly as an independent candidate.
Doubt he'll actually run as an independent, although there's always a chance that some wealthy crackpot will finance him simply out of hope that he'll steal some votes from Hillary in the general.

His stances on the issues are that of a moderate Republican...if anything, I doubt he'd take any votes that Hilldog would be getting anyway.

But would the wealthy crackpot realize that?

I thought (mainly from watching the James Bond documentaries) that wealthy crackpots tend to be very cunning and smart people, whose schemes can only be foiled by heavily drinking womanisers. Since Hillary doesn't meet those criteria, what chance would she have?

no, I meant this



/ETA: although, 4 shots really isn't anything to brag about. It was pretty funny when Dai realized that it's an Estonian custom for the groom to have a shot with any guest at least once (refusing a shot is Not Done). And it's an Estonian custom to try to get the groom so drunk he passes out. Which the Dutch guests thought was an awesome tradition. Though in the end not quite successful Anyhow, it was definitely more than 4 shots.

And how many people die of alcohol poisoning in an average year due to this quaint custom?

considering that x > 0 is too many, I'm going to say too many.



(btw, I think I should add that it *is* acceptable to throw the shot over your shoulder instead of downing it. If the other person notices, they may request a new shot)

Considering the occasion and the one most at risk, it seems fair to call it Darwinism In Action. Not really easy to come up with better examples, actually.
