Here are a few more clips of Adam Mordecai geeking out about politics. It's political season and Adam is a big proud liberal. Here at IAS, he's obsessed with Democrats with Spine, even! So how has Adam reacted to how moderate President Obama has been thus far, and what is Mordecai planning on doing this election? His tweets tell the story:
If you ask Adam Mordecai, in this analogy, hardcore Republicans would be like arsonists. Republicans might not themselves be arsonists, but what they do only helps arsonists accomplish the arsonist goal. (Libertarians would actually be the arsonists).
Adam Mordecai is an internet wizard who builds websites for political causes. If you ask Adam, he'd say that at the most basic level the internet is ones and zeroes - and he'd also say that American politics can be understood in similar terms: good guys and bad guys. Democrats and Republicans. Joe Lieberman would probably then be a virus. Lieberdems will crash your system, for sure.
The politician who says "I hate government! Elect me, I'll burn down City Hall!" gets almost 50% of the vote. He wouldn't get Adam's vote. Adam hates fire and he hates Democrats who play with matches. He's obsessed with Democrats With Spine.
