Yet America voted for Trump, who made it very clear that Roe would be gone under him. I trust abortion polls about as far as I can throw them.

...

I mean, there's no way that you didn't know that Hillary won the popular vote by 3,000,000 votes, and there's no way it just slipped your mind.

The nationwide popular vote means about as much to me as a speck of dust on the ground. Both are useless.

This coming from someone who thinks people care who he "endorses" in Senate races Roll Eyes

Looks like Manchin needs a primary challenger! Smiley

Lol sure, go ahead and primary Manchin. A Democrat in West Virginia. See what happens.

This. There are much bigger fish to fry than jeopardizing the balance of power in the Senate because Manchin voted for Trump's cabinet nominees. Take out Flake and Heller while protecting the vulnerable Democrats first.

You don't win if you don't try you guys. Plus he already voted for Sessions and Munuchin so he already made his bed.

Manchin took the lead on universal background checks after Sandy Hook and he's a Senator from West Virginia, I care more about that then I do about whether he votes with us on something that we have no chance of winning anyway.  Manchin does what he can when he can and if you don't see how his situation is different than someone like Lieberman, I really don't know what to say except that the world is a far more complicated place than you think.

It's been long obvious to everybody with more than three brain cells left intact BRTD is a part of Russian internet propaganda operations, tasked with making Putin and Trump opponents look silly, to put it mildly.

For how long should BRTD be jailed for his treason?

We could just take away his internet access Tongue
21  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: The Next DNC Chair: Keith Ellison, Pete Buttigieg, Tom Perez big names in race on: February 13, 2017, 02:17:44 pm
By that logic, why doesn't Ellison run for Minnesota Governor rather than DNC Chair?

Because Perez could actually make a Likely R race with Larry Hogan actually competitive. Not to mention Ellison has maximized turnout in his majority-white district since being elected, which is something that fits the qualities of an effective DNC chair, whereas Perez is a policy-wonk that could do better in a public office.

Plus, there's already several strong options for Democrats in Minnesota, whereas the field's much more open for someone like Perez to jump in and defeat Hogan. Strategically, it makes much more sense for Ellison to lead the DNC (his seat is safe D regardless) and for Perez to run for Maryland Governor than the opposite.

There are much stronger gubernatorial candidates than Perez if Democrats choose not to give Hogan a pass.  And of course, there's the fact that there is still no reason to think Ellison would make a good DNC Chair or even that Perez would be a bad one.  All I see is people trying to get a symbolic "victory" by re-ligating stuff from the 2016 primaries that is really pretty irrelevant at this point (and I say that as someone who both voted for and donated to Sanders during the primaries).

Trash-tier troll. The only person on my ignore list whose posts I never unhide.

Interesting to see all the FF votes, though.

Yeah, quite sad. If he were a Trump supporter, there'd at best be one or two FF votes, lol.

As much as I want to disagree with the bolded part of your post...yeah, that's obviously the case (although it wouldn't surprise me if you were one of those FF votes Tongue ).  Disappointing, to say the least.
23  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: The Next DNC Chair: Keith Ellison, Pete Buttigieg, Tom Perez big names in race on: February 13, 2017, 01:23:30 pm
Tom Perez finally accepted an interview from TYT Politics and he pretty much failed and showed his true colors. Especially at the end.

https://www.youtube.com/shared?ci=g81xG3e0oYI
The witchhunt against Tom Perez is quite disgusting. "Who in the Bernie Sanders world is supporting you?" Who f**king cares? The party does not revolve around a guy who's not even in said party.

Isn't that an important question, though? You have millions of people who voted for Sanders in the primary that want to feel like their interests are being represented in the Democratic party, and it makes sense that the DNC chair, as the spokesman of the party, should be able to represent not only the establishment in a way, but to this now-powerful voting block within the party.

This is why it's so maddening why Perez is running: he's not some Third Way sycophant. He's actually got a decently progressive record. But it's so obviously clear that he's been pushed into this race by the Obama administration to have some influence on the party agenda going forward. Perez is only in because of Clintonites not wanting a "Berniecrat" in charge of the show, which is literally the only actual reason people have to oppose him, and support Perez. There's no good reason for him to be in this race at all, except for him acting as an agent of fundamentally rejecting change.

(Actually, it's mind-boggling why Perez isn't running for Maryland Governor in 2018 instead of this race. That's way more important on a practical strategic level than running for a bureaucratic position like DNC chair.)

By that logic, why doesn't Ellison run for Minnesota Governor rather than DNC Chair?
24  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: If you were appointed the drawer all the congressional districts for 2022... on: February 13, 2017, 01:19:55 pm
The sane, normal side of me prefers option 3: a congress that's as responsive to the people as possible.

However, I must admit, there is a craven, almost McConnelist part of me that would revel at option 6.
This, but I wouldn't be too upset about option 4 either.

Option 3 is just as bad as options 1 and 6, if you need proof that Moderate Hero hacks/Centrist Smiley ideologues are both real and can have some pretty awful views, look no further than smoltchanov.
