@ruskijp Not yet, I don't think, although I have seen individual requests for people to be removed.I might actually start charging a dollar extra every time I have to needlessly forward to people who were correctly included initially.HEY PEOPLE: The "Reply All" button is not linked to a car battery that is hooked up to your junk. Sometimes it is appropriate and necessary. @DeirdreKoala I've never seen this photo. Amazing.Never tweet.

Half-cut, drinking a nice Pinot, rocking out to Plastic Bertrand in a city apartment overlooking Flagstaff gardens. I am the bourgeoisie. @guymosel this pick says that she values her donors more than young & progressive voters who might have been heartened by a left-leaning VP. @guymosel Kaine might give her a slight bump in VA, but otherwise he doesn't do anything for the ticket in terms of broadening her base.It's a clear signal that this campaign isn't going to offer anything of substance while demanding support from young & progressive voters.The Kaine selection is a massive Dem Establishment middle finger to Bernie's base. "Fuck you, we don't need you, you'll vote Hillary anyway"Tim Kaine: because you weren't disappointed with this election enough.
Retweeted by Rob Ruminskime in March: major side eye to Bernie's whiteness tbh me in July: well I personally find Governor Kaine to be a swell individual

Retweeted by Rob RuminskiCurrent mood: human beings are fundamentally craven, stupid, easily led by fear, and prone to horrific violence. K. Dick anticipates the logical conclusion of smart appliances ("Ubik", 1969)
Retweeted by Rob RuminskiHow would truthiness be measured? Who is the arbiter? Who appoints the arbiter? @lil_scooter93 "Holy shit even more like white people" is the correct response to his question.When did the meaning of "gaffe" change from "unintentional blunder" to "bile-spewing orc wears person costume on telly for years on end"?

Retweeted by Rob RuminskiThis is a ridiculously fun piece of writing and a not-entirely-batshit-insane idea. @MelbourneBitter I think it's a requirement of being a grandmother from a certain generation. They must sign a contract or something. @MelbourneBitter I think we pay more attention as we get older, until we're those elderly people poring over gruesome news & obituaries.Jesus Christ.
