Last year's ACU ratings:

Bayh - 30
Miller - 75


ADA ratings:

Bayh - 75
Miller - 10

and just ask Philip. He has a whole list of liberal positions of Bayh he uses to claim Bayh is a far leftist.

Kennedy is pretty close to "generic GOP candidate". And in Minnesota generic GOP candidates may come close, but they usually don't win.

I take Mark Dayton (D-MN)

two 1 term Senators who haven't accomplished crap and are just complete party hacks? As much as I dislike the GOP I doubt they'd go ahead and nominate two jokes like that.
60980  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Minnesota Senators on: January 31, 2005, 10:45:51 pm
Although he is vulnerable, I think Dayton will likely edge out a close victory in Minnesota unless his opponent is Mark Kennedy.  If Kennedy runs, Dayton will probably lose.  Ive heard from others that Kennedy is very popular in Minnesota and will be the toughest opponent for Dayton.

I don't know who told you that, but it's hardly true. Kennedy hasn't even broken 60% in his own congressional district, he's hardly very popular statewide. In fact, I'd consider him the weakest candidate out of Minnesota's 4 GOP Congressmen. The strongest would be Jim Ramstad, but he almost certainly will not run.

And if Coleman wants to run for president on a record of a 1 term Senator who hasn't done anything and just is a complete party hack, he can go ahead. But he will be very beatable in 2008 if he runs agin.

Didn't you say you did support trade with China in my little questionaire back there? I know most conservatives did.

Hm, you can put me in whichever Minnesota county remains most influenced by Sweden... Wink

Or, in the county where Fargo is. Smiley

Or just anywhere, come to think of it. Tongue

Fargo's in North Dakota, ha! It's also mostly German and Norwegian, not Swedish.

The most Swedish county in Minnesota is Kittson

Blue Earth, MN

I won't raise Hell over this, as I am supremely confident of a Presidential veto.

At any rate, I oppose free trade with all represive regimes.  Cuba included.

Like China?

hey now David, I don't agree with this. I actually think Daniel's idea is good.
60986  General Discussion / Religion & Philosophy / Re: Religion by county on: January 31, 2005, 01:23:34 pm
Pretty much the only one here who does is opebo. Sherburne and Scott counties are both full of affluent white collar yuppie folks who I hate as much as the religious right.
60987  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Election What-ifs? / Frist vs. Kerry 2008 on: January 31, 2005, 01:14:16 pm
Kerry/Kerry. Despite the loser stigma, Kerry now has the advantage that all his skeletons are out of the closet and not as effective anymore. That's not true with Frist, and he's just a very lousy candidate overall.



Kerry might even get Colorado too, I'd like to color it gray.
60988  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: what color is your vehicle? on: January 31, 2005, 01:10:58 pm
So you guys have the socialist color. Ugh. It's too bad my car is basically a hand-me-down, whenver I buy one it's definately going to be red.
60989  Election Archive / 2008 Elections / Re: Could Frist win against a generic Democrat? on: January 31, 2005, 01:10:03 pm
Frist could beat Hillary.  But otherwise, I can think of few Democratic nominees where it would be a definite lean Frist.  Biden, Bayh, Richardson, even Warner could beat Frist.  He's like a less charismatic version of Bob Dole.

And he's a cat killer

What are you going on about?

I recently found out what people meant by calling hima cat killer.

When Frist was a medical student, he went around to cat shelters, adopted cats and said he'd give them a good home. He would actually perform experiments on the cats so he lied about giving the cats a good home.

Was it stupid for him to lie about this? Yes but I doubt it would stand in his way of becoming President. It certainly doesn't mean that he's unqualified for the office.

Clinton lies about a blowjob, Frist lies about cruelly murdering animals. Which is worse?

You're also pretty naive if you think this won't turn off any voters. Imagine the 527 ads that would run showing cute little kittens and talking about Frist is a cat killer. You may think it's stupid and it may be, but thinking no one would care is naive.

*roll eyes*

a 2.5% loss is hardly an ass kicking, and it's kind of difficult for such a narrow victory to show that a country is rejecting an entire party.
60991  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Presidential Election Trends / Who has a better chance of winning their party's nomination? on: January 31, 2005, 12:58:07 pm
Bayh. Bayh is far closer to the party's mainstream than Guiliani, Philip keeps posting his "ultra-liberal" record which is hardly ultra-liberal but does show so. Bayh is pro-choice, just not on every issue, while Guiliani is 100% pro-choice and basically out of the mainstream on every social issue.

I'm posting this mainly because I have to laugh at any Republican who honestly believes Guiliani has a snowball's chance in hell of winning the nomation saying there is no way Bayh would ever be nominated.
60992  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Anti-Bush or Anti-Republican on: January 31, 2005, 12:48:56 pm
You are more anti-Republican. I am more anti-Bush.
60993  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: kerry on Meet the Press on: January 31, 2005, 12:38:26 pm
ah, a Republican connected to the Bush administration. That's going to play well in Massachusetts.

No Republican is winning a Senate race in MA for a very long time. If William Weld couldn't do it, no one can.

Let me get this straight, you claim this guy is Looney Left, and you've said that I'm Looney Left. Therefore, I'm on the same level as him. That's ing ridiculous.

This guy is just a ing idiot.
60995  General Discussion / Religion & Philosophy / Re: Religion by county on: January 30, 2005, 09:33:01 pm
wow, it turns out that some very heavily Democratic counties in Minnesota are FAR more religiou8s than ultra-Republican Scott and Sherburne counties! Now maybe conservative morons will quit claiming Democrats hate Christians.
60996  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Religion and voting on: January 30, 2005, 08:51:19 pm
He probably does consider himself Catholic just in a cultural sense more than a religious sense. It's not uncommon.
60997  General Discussion / History / Re: When was the last time two genuinely democratic countries went to war? on: January 30, 2005, 08:41:18 pm
One could make a case for the American Civil War, since the Confederacy had a Constitution set up for a democratic system of government.

However by today's standards the Confederacy was not democratic due to the enslavement of a large portion of the population. But of course the Union wasn't truly democratic back then either.
60998  General Discussion / History / Re: When was the last time two genuinely democratic countries went to war? on: January 30, 2005, 08:37:16 pm
There was no threat from a comunist Vietnam, as we see ther ewas no spread throught SE Asia.

Cambodia, Laos?

The communist takeover in Laos was largely due to the instability in the region created by US bombing, and it's not like Laos is any threat to the US.

That is also true of Cambodia, but using that as an example is fairly ridiculous considering it was actually the new unifed communist Vietnam that ousted the communist government.
60999  General Politics / Individual Politics / what color is your vehicle? on: January 30, 2005, 07:44:32 pm
White. But I wish it was red and think I might get it painted that one day. Take a guess why. Wink
61000  General Discussion / Religion & Philosophy / Re: Religion by county on: January 30, 2005, 07:28:35 pm
my county is:

25-50% Lutheran (I fall into this category)
10-25% Catholic
0.1-10% Mormon
less than 0.1% Jewish
