I like this comparison.  It's probably pretty accurate.

Say goodbye to Hillary's advantage among women.

On a more serious note, Fiorina will do about as well as Bachmann did in 2012. Nothing to see here, move along.

That's what I think, as well.

It's funny because NJ is quite the opposite with gushing. Seems to be a very obscure practice to me. Heck, I'm pretty sure a majority want the state anthem to be "Born to Run"

I gush about NJ all the time.  Then again... that's Jersey.  We aren't a backwards-ass attempt at a state-level theocracy run by Christian thugs. 

You seriously think New Jersey should be held in higher regard than Oklahoma?  Neither state should be held higher than the other.  Both states are great states with their pros and cons.  Neither state is perfect, but both states are great places to live and raise a family.

Lol yes.

This post vanquishes all of the credibility you had left.

I think its the relief pitcher that completed the 5th.

Ok, that's what I was thinking, but that question has always been with me.  Thanks.

I have a question about Major League Baseball, specifically pitching:

I know a starting pitcher has to go 5 full innings to get credit for the win, provided the lead is maintained by the bullpen the rest of the way.  Let's say a starting pitcher goes fewer than 5 full innings, but has the lead at the time of his exit.  If the bullpen maintains the lead the rest of the way home, how is the winning pitcher determined among the bullpen?

Any baseball fans are welcomed to chime in here.

Real quick while I have a break at work, I did not create it as a pseudo-Update.  I did not create it with anything Update.  I know the rules and I am following the rules to the tee.  All I was trying to do is share what the Oklahoma City bombing did for Oklahoma City and how most of the rest of the country views Oklahoma and her citizens.  I didn't say your view of Oklahoma was wrong, but it is in the minority.  I am doing nothing that's against the new protocol.  In fact, I am being truthful when I welcome the changes.  I didn't know talking about Oklahoma was an Update?

Bushie no one gives a rats ass about OK.  No one thinks about people inOK like you do.  It's  a joke town in a joke state. 

Enjoy your celebration, no one else gives a flying f[inks]. 

You are free to have your opinions, but I can tell you the vast majority of Americans do not agree with you.

Why don't they vote based on biblical issues like income inequality, rejecting hatred of other human beings, and promoting equal rights for all?

Because homosexuality was taught against strongly in the Old Testament, and most true Christians consider the Old Testament to be just as relevant as the New Testament.  They should vote also based on income inequality, but most Biblical voters consider homosexuality and abortion to be more important issues.

As for the OP, I think 2020.  I really do not think Hillary will win next year.  I think her baggage is starting to catch up to her and regardless what you think of the issue now, conservatives will almost unanimously vote against her because of Benghazi.  The issue may be a non-issue for the Democratic voters now, but it hasn't not gone away for the conservative voters.  That and email-gate will cause nearly all conservatives to vote for the Republican no matter who it is.  Plus, the far left may be so against Hillary's candidacy that they may stay home like the far right did to Mitt Romney in 2012.  If she wins, she will almost beat the odds based on the right's perception of her tenure as the nation's top diplomat, and the apathy of the far left.

The homosexual, abortionist overlords don't like primaries.  But then again, they don't need them as the Democrats have lost their moderate and conservative wings.

I've always been confused by the pairing of homosexuality and abortion in politics. Besides being the two main issues Falwell used to turn Christians against the Democrats in the 80s, what do these issues have to do with each other? Absolutely nothing.

They are not connected at the issue level, but they are connected in that most voters consider them "Biblical issues".  If a voter bases his or her vote based on what the Bible says, which many, especially, on the right do, he or she is likely to be against homosexuality and against abortion.  Voting based on Biblical values is less common on the left, although it can still happen.  And, to be fair, it's really not just the Bible.  Those who vote based on the Quran also generally vote against both issues, usually in much larger numbers than Bible voters.

a few dozen Americans get killed and then the millions of survivors all talk about how strong they are.  naive, pathetic, masturbatory.
168 is a few dozen? WTF?

Also, Bushie managed to make a terrorist attack memorial thread into a negative thing. Nice job man.

I did not turn it into a negative thread.  Grumps and other posters early in the thread did.  All I did was explain the good things that have come out of the terrorist attack and acknowledging the nation's genuine love, admiration, and respect for Oklahoma City and the victims and survivors of that act of terrorism.  I said nothing to turn this into a negative thread.  I did not compare it to other cities, either, so there was nothing negative to draw from the thread.  We're not perfect, our politics tells you that right away, but we have so much going for us at this time and are growing at a rapid rate.  It all came about, I believe, from the strong spirit that Oklahomans showed in the days and months following the bombing and from the nationwide outpouring of love and support at all levels of government and the media.  We are truly a strong people.

Today, April 19, marks the 20th anniversary of the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City.  As you might expect there was a great ceremony in Oklahoma City this morning with President Bill Clinton in attendance as well as Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson and the current FBI director.  I know this nation has never forgotten the events of that day and holds the utmost respect for the citizens of Oklahoma City for showing this nation what it truly means to live by the "Oklahoma Standard".  I also know that this nation has a fondness for the City of Oklahoma City because of how we all came together on that fateful day.  We may joke on this forum that Oklahoma City is full of nobodies, but I know for a fact that the majority of the United States does not think negative about Oklahoma City.  They realize how much and how fast we've grown because of our heart and our standard.  Everybody with half a brain realizes that we are so much more than an old, dusty cow town stuck in the 1930's.  Oklahoma City will never go away.  We are some of the strongest group of people you will ever find.

I feel sorry for the Iowa and New Hampshire voters this year.  The caucus rooms will be very crowded and very hard to distinguish between one candidate's circle and the next candidate's circle.  In New Hampshire, the ballot will be 3 pages long provided nobody bows out after Iowa and each ballot will need to be accompanied by cliff notes on each candidate.  That's not to mention the campaign ads in those states are going to be brutal, vicious, and long-lasting.

The first GOP debate is going to need a stadium.

The debate is in Ohio in August, so why not rent out the Horseshoe? (Ohio State's Football Stadium)  Your typical auditorium probably will not cut it this year...

Seriously, this is the election where literally everybody and their dog will run.  At this rate, I wouldn't be surprised to see a few pooches throw their bone into the ring...
