Sayeth Shaker Ruth: "Thought I should alert you to another insidious little nugget of irresponsibility by MSNBC. They invite you to choose from 5 options for 'the main reason for the failure of Senator Clinton's campaign.' For the record, I happen to think it's number 2. Pretty damn interesting, though, that MSNBC doesn't see fit to list sexism or media bias among the five options, since those are certainly arguable reasons for her loss. And not surprising that 26% of respondents have chosen a 'none of the above' that can probably be read as 'fuck you'."

I also like, as an aside, how "a combination thereof" isn't an option. Just a friendly reminder that the media doesn't do nuance, in case you'd forgotten.
