He's free to resign at any time.

Tammy Baldwin will be the Portman of 2018. I don't see any decent GOP candidate running against her.

That alone means she can't be the Portman of 2018.

Former congressman Zack Space is running for Auditor while failed Cincinnati mayoral candidate Rob Richardson is running for Treasurer. Space is a good get for Democrats, though it unfortunately means Lorain Mayor Ritenauer is probably out. Richardson says he was approached about running, which I hope isn't true because Leland is a MUCH better candidate.

Ive been hearing a Sutton/Leland ticket as of late. perhaps thats why?

Ugh, please don't let this be a thing.

Peter Russo because he was the only even remotely interesting character (although that may've just been because Corey Stoll gave such a great performance that he elevated the material)

None of the "people" my drones spy on are actual people, so it doesn't matter.  No one but me actually exists, you're just a bunch of artificially intelligent pieces of digital code programed to mimic human consciousnesses filtered through various thought patterns which are determined by complex algorithms.  For $10.00, I get to experience a simulation of the entire life of a wealthy technology executive in just five real world minutes.  It's like a cheap vacation that lets you live the life of your dreams, but the cheap simulation has some bugs so sometimes someone will make a movie portraying me as an asshole or I'll make a bad business decision without recouping my losses (and you can't rewrite the historical background settings aside from the basics like year, dominant economic system, etc).  You get what you pay for, I suppose.  The technology was developed about 50 real world years ago after some computer genius watched the Black Mirror Christmas special while he was high as a kite.

Why do birds exist?

Always liked Space, glad he's running!

Mike Pence has terrible views, but is not an actual monster. Dick Cheney would eat the still-beating heart of a child's puppy in front of the child if he could make a dollar off of it.

Pence had no problem being the runningmate of a sex predator, defending traitors who thought nothing of selling out our country to Russia (and in doing so, broke his oath of office).  Pence is a far greater monster than Cheney.  Pence, like Paul Ryan and George Wallace, is a man who during one of those rare times when one side was unambiguously evil sold his soul to the devil and never looked back.  The fact that Pence probably knows better isn't a redeeming feature, it makes it worse.  In some ways, it even makes Pence worse than Trump.  

While it's not an excuse, at least with Trump you could (rightly) argue that he's a mentally ill manchild who really should be committed to a mental hospital and treated with some sort medication (which is exactly where he'd be if he didn't have a rich father).  Trump is a sick man incapable of perceiving reality as it actually is, he lives in a fantasyland of paranoid delusions.  OTOH, Pence likely understands full well that irreparable damage may be done to the country and that millions of Americans will needlessly suffer due to Trump's policies (and die in the case of the Obamacare repeal)...he just doesn't give a s*** as long as their suffering advances his career.  That makes him truly evil and if God is just there's a special place in Hell for men like Pence, Ryan, George Wallace, Thomas Watson, etc.  Cheney did many terrible things, but Pence is a whole other kind of monster; there's simply no comparison.

Yet here we all are, talking about him.
That says more about how pathetic we are than how relevant Nader is.

This.

I'd be most inclined to bank on Brown, because Mandel just really isn't a good candidate.

I thought about that, but I don't even think that's a competitive race right now, tbh. 
11  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Ralph Nader: The Democrats are unable to defend the US on: June 25, 2017, 06:08:20 pm
Who?

The man who might be responsible for saving more American lives than any other living person on account of his advocacy for seat belt laws and other automobile safety improvements.

Obviously I know who Nader is, but my point is he's completely irrelevant now.  Also, he's a hypocritical egomaniac, but that's beside the point.
Whatever. What he says is obviously quite on target. That's the point.

No one cares what Nader thinks and he has only himself to blame for that

Could be worse - I could have to wear the Avatar of Shame known as Oklahoma.

You have an Arkansas avatar...

Indeed, but I don't have the avatar of a failed, incompetent state party.

Again, you have an Arkansas avatar.

Sinema might be waiting for an open seat in 2022.

Sinema would lose badly, Stanton's our best candidate here.

I don't think Sinema would lose badly, but either way she's not running. Gallego would be a good candidate too.

Gallego can't win statewide in AZ, at least not yet.

Because being a Tory hack is the only reason anyone could possibly have for opposing a politician who is (at best) a useful idiot for groups like Hamas and Hezbollah Roll Eyes

Evergreen's permaban was long overdue (sane, normal, etc)

Both Klartext89 and evergreen have been banned for abuse of the terms of service.

Glorious news!

Both were absolutely awful; the heavily altered endings in particular were abominations.

Frank Underwood should not even exist in his own fictional universe.
