    After all, the Russian hacking saga is people being upset that a foreign power would dare to intervene in US politics (the USA has a patent on that), so even as a joke a lot of people will not welcome perceived interference from Mexico.

    It's all bullshit of course but when facts don't matter any more perception is everything.
    People "intervene" in our politics all the time, and we "intervene" in theirs. Mexico and mexican politicians have been shouting about immigration for ages.

    The Butthurt is because of hacking, and because it in any measure helped cause Clinton to lose.

    What I always find most interesting is that nothing that was hacked/leaked was ever really denounced/claimed to be untrue. It was just politically damaging truth.
    Of course everyone is fine with foreign intervention when it is helping their side, it's only a problem when it helps the other side.

    I suspect that the Russian's have buyer's remorse about now.

    I find this ability of people who should be on the winning side of politics to piss it all away and lose - snatch defeat from the jaws of victory - astounding.

    After - to my amazement but given Brexit and Trump I really should admit that I am shit at predicting this stuff - our High Court allowed the joke of a postal plebiscite on same-sex marriage to go ahead I assumed that the Yes campaign had it in the bag as polls consistently showed 66-75% support.

    Suddenly the Yes campaign is in panic mode because not only support for Yes is waning but given that for once you are not forced to vote, intended participation rates are also falling.

    So how did it come to this?

    You could say that the polls are wrong.

    But equally the problem is that parts of the Yes Campaign have behaved in a way that you'd expect the No campaign to behave.

    The problem with that is part of the Yes campaign's appeal was that their religious conservative opponents are a bunch of cunts.

    But people expect cunts to behave like cunts.

    The problem is that many on the Yes side are also behaving like cunts. This puts people off, a number who have no strong opinion about same-sex marriage but have a definite opinion about cunts.

    I still expect Yes to win but it won't be the emphatic victory that would guarantee that parliament does its damned job and passes the legislation to make same-sex marriage legal.

    The moral of the story? Don't behave like cunts until after you have won if you are the side claiming the moral high ground.

    Nope.

    He's a genuine person.

    But not genuinely that retarded. Just trolling.

    From what people who've played Eve with him have said, he's actually that thick

    Like, literal sub 90 IQ thick

    I mean, he's also being deliberately retarded but when you're this consistent at it you might as well just treat him like he's actually developmentally challenged
