Amazingly, the CNN moderator Anderson Cooper actually eked out a climate-change question Sunday night. No big deal—merely the biggest crisis since homo sapiens became sapient: Emma Foehringer Merchant at The New Republic writes—On fracking, Sanders has a one word answer: “No”:

In response to a cut-and-dry question about whether the candidates support fracking, Sanders got the chance to clearly put daylight between his climate policy and Clinton’s. (Both candidates claim they have the most comprehensive plan to combat climate change.)

Clinton listed a number of scenarios in which she does not support fracking (“When any locality or state is against it” or if there are methane leaks or water contamination). “By the time we get through all my conditions I do not think there will be many places in America where fracking will continue to take place,” she said. Sanders was more definitive: “My answer is a lot shorter: No, I do not support fracking.”

It was only a few days ago that the curiously coiffed man-child who’s leading the race for the Republican nomination said on national TV, without a hint of shame, “Look at these hands. If they’re small, something else must be small. I guarantee you there’s no problem. I guarantee you.”

On Sunday night in Flint, Michigan, the two candidates competing for the Democratic nomination debated issues that matter not in high school locker rooms, but in real life.

It became obvious last year that Kos was a limousine liberal, mostly interested in the social part of the Democratic Party, symbolism and money of the left. I would not visit the site, make any clicks or support the site in any way if they are going to censor full and open discussion of the progressive agenda.

I think it was just a glitch of some kind. Or, MB might have taken it down for a few minutes to fix something. It is back up now. The timestamp showing on the FP and the timestamp showing when you open the diary are different by about 13 minutes. Don't know what happened, but it's nothing shady.

"if there are methane leaks or water contamination".
How the fuck do you ascertain that without drilling in the first place? And because there are none before fracking doesn't mean shit once you do.

Regardless of the path in life I chose, I realize it's always forward, never straight.

"Just answer the fookin question."

Best line from the most ahistorical movie ever. But still something I wish somebody would have the courage to say to Ms. Clinton.
