There is a Republican wave this year and Colorado is not immune to it.  That doesn't mean Udall will lose, it just means that he will have to fight tooth-and-nail to keep his seat.

He can always just explain to the pizza customers that due to the inclement weather, he'll need to make a pit stop at a motel for the night first.  They'll get their pizzas in due course.

I'm just imagining Our Dear Friend doing exactly that, eating the pizzas as he lies in bed watching television at the motel, knowing that it's better that they not go cold and that he can buy more pizza from another place to take to the customer the next morning, thinking that he can charge it (and the motel stay) to his pizza store, only to find that nobody is cooking and selling pizza early enough the next day, and when he makes a trip to the customer's house to explain what has happened, the hapless, disturbed resident explaining that it's 11 AM and they don't want the pizza anymore, and Jeff driving back to the pizza store and being asked to return his hat.  But it would be okay, because there are other pizza stores that are also hiring delivery drivers.

Yes, yes. Say what you will about the mormen, but at least they're not goddamn snake worshippers.

I don't care


To prison?  Yes, that's probably a good idea.

As for Charlie Crist, I think this really refreshed a hitherto milquetoast campaign.

As a sidenote: please Jesus let Wyoming be next.

CHEYENNE -- A federal judge in Casper has issued an order that strikes down Wyoming’s ban on same-sex marriage.

However, the order is on hold until Thursday, unless the state notifies the court sooner that it will not appeal the ruling.

During Thursday’s gubernatorial debate in Riverton, Gov. Matt Mead said he would not appeal if Judge Scott W. Skavdahl ruled in favor of gay marriage.

“If the court rules, with the 10th Circuit already ruling, I don’t see there will be merit in appealing the judge’s order,” Mead said.

Same Sex Marriage?

No - 57%
Yes - 38%

Opinion on recognition?

Full Marriage - 39%
Civil Unions - 30%
No legal recognition - 29%


It's nice to see that the 'no' side is a lot more flexible than the 'yes' side...

Going to need a bulldozer to scrape that omlette off your face, Atlas Forum.

Of all the politicians to feel passionate about, why Pat Roberts?  He seems extraordinarily dull, mediocre.  Unless it's just purely the sake of seeing the GOP succeed, then I get that.

It seems like South Dakota badly needs representation  by someone like Rick Weiland.

Yes, I am cautiously optimistic that the Democrats will do surprisingly well in the gubernatorial contests this year.  Feeling less confident about the Senate, though.

Don't f**k with Pat Quinn.

I am glad that Governor Quinn has been able to achieve this, fingers crossed!

With the most recent tobacco tax increase it is now cheaper to smoke weed than cigarettes.

($300 per ounce of marijuana = 1 month supply for daily use)
($177 for 8 packs of 25 cigarettes each = 2 weeks supply for daily use)

I felt very conflicted about Scottish independence - generally disliking secessionist movements or anything of a nationalist nature - but ultimately I felt that the debate allowed for a greater discussion about Scottish treatment.  I hope the outcome of reforms is generally positive.

I voted yes/no in the poll.

Love it.  I watched through the entire series in May / June and was astounded (also offended) at how frequent the gay jokes were.  At the time, the very mention of homosexuality was enough for a lot of conservative Christian parents to deem it unacceptable, relatives of mine included.  Have been watching through 90s Simpsons recently too.  Unlike Seinfeld, I think those two are still quite good.  Seinfeld almost feels irritating.
19  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Air Force to atheist Sgt.: "Recite 'So help me god' or get out" on: September 13, 2014, 10:41:16 pm
An oath began as a mystical thing, and I think retains a bit of that quality to it even today.  It is possible for an atheist to have a commitment that is of an almost religious quality.

What does that even mean in this context? Why should that mean this man should be forced to invoke a god he doesn't believe in?

I would think it means he shouldn't have to, as it would contradict his religious commitment.  I wonder if there could be some other source of help he can reference that is more in line with his beliefs.

I don't think so.  This sounds sort of like that 'atheists are religious / believe in God, even if they don't realise it' line of reasoning that I've come across.  I can't really speak for anyone else, but personally I wouldn't need to be referencing anything like that if taking an oath of that nature.  For me, it would be best to omit the line.

If you're an atheist (as am I), saying "so help me God" isn't really any different than saying "hocus-pocus, if I am false let bad juju fall on my head."

I mean, it's just words. If you're treating religious references like they have mystical power... haven't you gone full circle back to being religious again?

There's nothing mystical about respect.

22  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: On first night at CNN, Carney gets aggresive McCain on: September 11, 2014, 02:55:48 pm
I can't bear to watch John McCain speak for more than 30 seconds, to be honest.  Whatever this argument is about, hearing that self-righteous arrogant prick talk about his expert background in dishonesty is excruciating.  Such a relief he never came close to the Presidency, what an embarrassment.
23  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: McDonnells found guilty on: September 10, 2014, 03:46:11 am
The part of this story where Bob McDonnell signed off on a legal brief saying that his wife was some bat**it manipulative, crazed maniac and that she was guilty of everything while he was innocent is especially interesting in light of the fact that he got 11 charges while she only landed 9.

Edit- found source

There's also this, which is less relevant, but this snippet, I found worth noting.
And a former assistant to her husband said he was mortified when Maureen tried to pitch a dietary supplement to GOP presidential hopeful Mitt Romney's wife, Ann, who has multiple sclerosis.

I don't see why I wouldn't eat it.  My diet has changed fairly dramatically in the last few months (cutting out meat, alcohol, fried foods), but my desert options remain largely unreformed.
25  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / U.S. Presidential Election Results / Re: Counties with strong swings in opposite directions in consecutive elections on: September 07, 2014, 01:47:21 am
Alameda County,CA gave more support to Mc Govern in '72 (55%) than they did Humphrey in '68 (53%). 

Also more support went to Mondale in '84 (58%) than Carter's re-election campaign (48.3%)

John Kerry (75%) had more support than Al Gore (69%) against Bush

All three of those can be attributed mostly to third parties.
