Not that you can't make bar graphs fucked up
Apples and oranges. Not even fuckin oranges. You're comparing apples and Trump steaks for fucks sake.

Humans in general are soooooo fucking much better at recognizing shapes and size vs numbers.

Because math is a learned skill but you know instinctually if that cave lion is big enough to eat you.

Graphs are used to lie.
They colored that graph in two colors and with this division for a reason.
Because somebody could pretend to say 'oh this is clearly not meant to be a graph my bad' the exact same way that Fox says 'but look we labeled the axis - you just thought that the size of the bar has any impact - you are so dumb'

Sorry for trying to give my fellow KATG listeners a little credit for knowing how to read. Next time I'll just type out the delegates and leave the graphic off. Wouldn't wanna confuse you too much.

also, they increased the font on Sanders name to imply that he's the winner. of what, i don't fucking know b/c he's not running against Obama and there's no need to compare him to Obama. why would it be important that he's bigger, faster, stronger than the guy leaving office? b/c he was Hillary's last opponent and now we get to measure their dicks and pee streams to see who wins that, too, because the media is making your campaign feel limp?

i'm less concerned with who wins what and why and how than with the thinking that a win is a panacea. we will celebrate all weekend and be disappointed ole Bernie couldn't give us a Utopia in a single presidency.

want a truth bomb? we aren't in a position to create or support Bernie's programs. i would LOVE my generation to gift the country universal healthcare and education, we aren't there yet. we will not be there in 4 years. the /best/ we can do is start the process of untangling the necklace around our economy before we can go waving the fruits of our labor around. those fruits have already been eaten, friendo.

you've just convinced me to vote for Hillary. i wasn't going to vote, but now i'm going to not only vote, but i'm doing it to specifically cancel out YOUR vote.

let me write it out:

Bernie Sanders supporter: Eric M
Hillary supporters: Broad City

you can't see the difference because i've left off the graphic bits, but you were represented by a little pile of poop and Abbi and Ilana are squatting over you. the axis was Abbi's height in metric.
