Because Trump is a demagogue and if he wins it will spell the defeat of the last dregs of decency and reason that still exist in American political discourse. I thought it was obvious.

So, it seems Hillary has a good lead here. I do pity you Americans though, we've had some shitty candidates but the choice between a douche and a turd has never been so stark as it is for you this election. Whomever wins you lose.

Though I do wonder, do any of you besides Genesis and Kakwa actually think Hillary is a great candidate. Who else will be happy that she is their president? Or is this really "Choosing the Lesser Evil" The Election?

Likewise I suppose is there anyone who thinks Trump would be an awesome president? And not just "anyone but Hillary."

I wanted to add this to the poll but it would have made things clunky and doubled the number of options.

I feel like either Trump will win by a small minority, or he'll lose by a landslide. One or the other.

I'm fully convinced, after Brexit, that the Silent Trump Voter is a very real thing. If it is, then he'll clinch it. If it isn't, then he'll lose by a fair amount.

Everybody on both sides had pretty much resigned themselves to a Remain victory, even as the polls were narrowing closer to the day, pretty much all of them showed a Remain victory. But as it turned out, the opposite happened to the surprise of everybody. I think it might be the same thing here, given how much the media at large there has demonised Trump and his supporters so much.

That is rather good, in all fairness.

On the subject of Fried Chicken, I envy our American friends. In the UK you've got KFC, and....that's pretty much it. You might find the occasional (and rare) Mom and Pop type Fried Chicken joint but I've only encountered a couple and they really aren't common. There's no other major chains here to my knowledge (or certainly not outside of maybe 1 or 2 places like London) and that's a damn shame.

Fried Chicken is awesome, but KFC isn't what it once was, or so I'm told. The food is....ok, in my experience, but everything I've read suggests KFCs stuff is garbage compared to what it was before KFC become this huge beast it is today.

Can you buy a fryer? It's not terribly difficult to make and to make it well.

It's an absolute pain in the ass to clean up, though. I always prefer to get fried chicken from someone else than make it for that very reason.

My mother fries chicken in a skillet. Not perfect, but still tastes good.

Also, KFC is shit.

I only think Clinton is a great candidate by comparison. Her opposition is literally a fascist. Also, tons of fascists and racists do love Donnie.

Funny; I think the same of Hillary.


At least if Donnie shows fascistic tendencies it'll be easy to get people on board to get rid of him. There will be no dislodging Clinton once she's in.

Donnie has a cult of personality and encourages his followers to disregard anything bad they hear of him as nasty rumors.

I contest your use of literally. I haven't heard anything about making the Carribbean into Mare Nostrum again, or recovering destined land from Canada and Mexico.

Fuck me, this really is a choice between a turd and shit sandwich - and I'm not entirely sure which candidate is the turd and which is the shit sandwich.

Fryers are pains to clean but if he wants fried chicken it's not hard to make.

True.

My mom fries chicken in a skillet, like Dithon's mom. Not as difficult to clean unless the oil pops a lot and mixes in with the breading (in this case, it would just be flour and some mild spices, nothing extravagant), in which case endless scrubbing would happen. Or scraping the darn stuff off.

Homemade fried chicken is delicious, though! If I ever make some for my husband, maybe he'll finally be convinced that there's better than KFC.

Of course there's better, even a Brit like me knows that! I don't even want to imagine how good the Fried Chicken joints must be in the Southern USA. It hurts to think about.

Your taste in chicken and WarCraft fan forums is solid, your taste in Husbands leaves something to be desired!

Nah but joking aside, it's a combo of things that put me off making my own. Largely the cleaning, which you guys have rightly pointed out is a huge pain in the ass, there's also a personal thing that I just.....don't like handling or doing prep with Raw Meat. I just....really don't like it.

If you (or anyone else for that matter) ever stop by the Charlotte or Columbia area I'll drag you down to a restaurant in a tiny bumfuck town named McConnells, called "McConnell's Kitchen."

They have the absolute best goddamn fried chicken I've ever eaten.

I don't recall any Clinton supporters threatening to kill journalists who write bad things about her or threatening to kill people who file lawsuits against her.

You're right, she doesn't make threats. Accidents just sorta... happen.

Clinton has been under investigation for 30 fucking years straight. The GOP has constantly tried to take her down, but every time she comes up squeaky clean. Hell, half the time they probably don't even expect to find anything wrong; They just know that just being investigated will make idiots think she's corrupt.
She's probably the cleanest politician we've had run for president in years.
Is a pretty glowing recommendation.
