"You only say that because you don't understand how politics works"

also took the form of

"I would like to think that you understand how politics works"

(they really didn't want to think that because their real intention was to "school" that poster in an authoritarian and didactic manner)

THEN concluded with the unifying fake sincerity of

"Sorry your guy lost."

THEY were the champions of the world, THOSE posters. No time for losers because THEY were the champions...of the WORLD.

Why aren't you able to bookmark it? I've kept it saved for years in my favorites on Internet Explorer and then on Firefox; I dread the day that Skinner or Elad decide that there just is no longer any room to keep stuff from DU 2.
