One requiring a prescription to purchase more than 28.8 grams of pseudoephedrine annually, to fight meth production;

Isn't the GOP supposed to be for "limited government"?

And one allowing prosecution of mothers for using illicit drugs while pregnant.

The GOP war on women continues.

Quinnipiac: Obama the worst President since WWII

Quinnipiac is the worst pollster since WWII.

Media executives were much more conservative than journalists. They decide what stories get covered.

Those numbers are from the far-right Media Research Center.

Why it flipped?

Two words: The Media.

To be fair, McConnell last won in 2008, not exactly a banner year for Republicans, so we shouldn't really read into his five point victory.

But it was against Bruce Lunsford, who was about the weakest candidate the Democrats could possibly dredge up (unless they wanted to run Singapore Ken or someone).

Rand Paul, on the other hand, won by 11 points

That was when the Tea Party was throwing their little fit.

Still, for Kentucky to have two Republican senators, it seems that some Democrats there don't necessarily vote party-line. Considering that both Montana and West Virginia could both have a Republican senator after this midterm, it seems that there might be Democrats there as well who are willing to split the ticket.

Mitch McConnell and Rand Paul really didn't win by that much last time they ran.

How do we account for Democratic Gov. Steve Beshar winning by double-digits in 2011?

It is overall a Democratic state, unless you're talking about presidential elections. This is also true of West Virginia and Montana.

All these states have one thing in common: coal.
34  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Quinnipiac University Poll: Obama worst president since WWII on: July 02, 2014, 09:10:37 am
Only 33% said he was the worst. The other 67% disagreed.
35  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Federal judge strikes down KY gay marriage ban on: July 02, 2014, 09:08:00 am
You are so out if touch with the social views of the people of Kentucky

A poll several months ago said a majority in Kentucky now support either gay marriage or civil unions.

This is not 1995.
36  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: KY Sen: Grimes vs. McConnell: Who wins? on: July 01, 2014, 10:50:34 pm
KY, like OK, has a large number of fake Dems, about 20%, who don't vote Democratic 99% of the time. Maybe they think it's fine for a Democrat to be Governor from time to time but nothing beyond that apparently. They tease Democrats in the polls but Grimes ceiling is 48-49%, and I don't even think that's happening. McConnell will get 50% or more.

By now, I think these "fake Dems" have given up pretending to be Democrats.
37  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: KY Sen: Grimes vs. McConnell: Who wins? on: July 01, 2014, 06:19:49 pm
I'd say Grimes, but we have to remember that The Media has been in the tank for McConnell the whole time.

The will of the people prevails.

I wouldn't be surprised if this story was completely made up.
I would be.  What with the school district's website being linked in the third word in the story and all.  Unless you think it's a fake school district, but that would be really stupid.

It's just that schools block liberal sites all the time, and the right-wing media never reports on it.

An amendment against corporate personhood is a must, and it needs to be done right quick.

Either that, or the Supreme Court needs to reverse itself.
43  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / U.S. Presidential Election Results / Re: Why did Ford win big cities in the South? on: June 19, 2014, 09:47:37 pm
Also, the South had a lot of rural blacks.
44  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Presidential Election Trends / Re: White Urban Vote on: June 19, 2014, 09:45:42 pm
Obama definitely lost whites in Cincinnati, look at the west side of Cincinnati where once you get out of the minority areas, Romney won 60-70%

Most of those probably aren't within the city. Those are probably the white supremacist precincts outside the city where racists like Steve Chabot get most of their support.
45  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: CNN: Obama, Bush have (near) identical favorability ratings on: June 13, 2014, 08:02:22 am
Obama being -4 at this point in his term really isn't too bad. Most Presidents are just absolutely stinking up the polls 5 or 6 years in.
46  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2014 Senatorial Election Polls / Re: Magellan (R)/National Mining Association: 8 Senate polls on: June 12, 2014, 02:54:33 pm
I remember seeing a poll back last year that said the candidates were roughly even, but Grimes led by 15 among folks who were more familiar with the campaign. Maybe McConnell is floundering just because people are finding out more.
47  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Do realignments exist? on: June 12, 2014, 09:42:50 am
I think the period from 1994 to 2000 was a realigning one. The Democrats collapsed in 1994. But in 2000 (or maybe 1998), the Republicans collapsed in urban areas. The GOP never really collapsed in rural areas.

In other words, the urban areas recovered from the Republican Revolution of the '90s, while the rural areas did not.

Another candidate for this list is Gilberton PA, which is where a Tea Party police chief posted obscene YouTube rants and got his militia supporters to take over the town.
