The way the rest of the world colors their US political maps is wrong, and our way is correct.  This is an objective fact.

What the heck is 'softcore' porn anyway?  Suggestive ankle-showing?

So far I've had probably about thirty phone calls from the Hillary campaign, and the other day I got a text message from somebody I don't know asking if I was #feeling the bern yet.  The next week is going to be super fun.

Hey Joe, you think Reid will help Hillary with his machine or will he just sit this out?

Reid's machine only operates when his own name is on the ballot.

Clinton does know about Obama's approval ratings, right?

They're fantastic among Democrats.  90% or so, I think?  What's your point?

Add that to the list along with the caucus system, and having the shape of the nomination race decided by the same couple of states every four years.

I've never quite understood why criticizing Christianity is often met with pictures/gifs of fat guys wearing fedoras.  But then I typically understand only 45% or so of internet memes.

i mean, there's a difference between "criticizing" christianity and calling it an "unfunny, played out joke". but of course you wouldn't understand that.

Describing, say, the Republican Party the same way around here might merit a repost in the Comedy Goldmine*, but mocking Christianity gets... a fat guy in a fedora?  The Atlas forum is an odd amalgamation of cynical bastards willing to make biting stabs at every facet of modern society, but take aim at this country's most sacred institution, and suddenly you're... a fat guy in a fedora, for some reason.  I guess I don't get it.

Do you really want dating advice from a bunch of basement dwelling neckbeards on a political forum?

Why do you assume that the people on this forum are a bunch of "basement-dwelling neckbeards"? Do you have any real evidence?

The phrase assumes that the people have beards on their necks and that they have a basement in their homes.

In case anyone questions me, I'm stationed at a naval hospital in Virginia and I live in an apartment in the area. I've got a copy of my apartment lease, but I won't show you an image of my government ID card.

See, TexasGurl?  The post above clearly demonstrates what a normal, well-adjusted collection of gentlemen we are.

Typical election year quality poster.  Jfern and ProgressiveCanadians's analyses of the Hillary-Bernie campaign are less horrendous to read.

We have to keep in mind that nothing is free.  Some way, some how it has to be paid for.  So basically healthy people are paying out the a$$ to cover the sick.  And also, health care is not and should not be a right.
If we let people pay for their own health care in a free market, costs would come down.  But if government is supplying it, costs will skyrocket and the quality will decline.

By the time any of this matters, Clinton will have almost certainly clinched the nomination.

^^^

I remember in 2008 the bickering after Florida and Michigan held their primaries earlier than the DNC would allow, and thus lost all of their delegates.  Those two states whined that that was too unfair, so they were then allowed half the number they were entitled.  This was all a pretty significant discussion when the race between Obama and Clinton was still tied well into the spring, and half a slate of delegates from two large states could have made all the difference.  But of course by the time of the convention when the fight was all over, everybody was like "f[Inks] it" and the DNC gave both states their full slates back again, thus rendering the entire argument a complete waste of time.

Unless they're showing it on the plane I'm about to board, then no.

But who am I kidding; if I was sitting on my ass at home the answer would still be no.

50 Shades of Black currently has a 7% RT score (shocking, I know).  Don't follow The Arizonan's advice, and just to be safe, put him on ignore.

That's harsh man.

And how did it get such a low score?

You saw the previews, I presume?  That should help answer your question.

You are the campaign manager of Marco Rubio and the debate just ended. You glance down at your phone, you see you already have a dozen missed calls. It's time for you to step out in the spin room and face the media

How do you spin Rubio's debate performance to the press

Clinton crushed. Bernie was dreadful on foreign policy.

Foreign policy isn't really a big issue to democrats as much as campaign finance.

oh ok then
I guess you could say that Sanders was the only one that got booed tonight... Oh wait no that was Hillary.

So you're conceding that Sanders is weak on foreign policy, but you're saying that it doesn't matter in the primaries anyway, plus he's stronger on an issue you and a debate audience care more about?  Top notch strategy there, bud.
