maybe economic struggles will lead to a regime change in their country, too!

Awesome! Smiley

You can remove the thing about the fish dumb test by deleting the second image code, by the way. Most annoying thing about imageshack.

As far as I know in cases like this the Senate can accept whoever they want for whatever reason they want.

Legally, anyway. Of course if they make a stupid biased choice they'd be paying for it in 2010.
11857  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Vitter vs. Craigslist? on: November 14, 2008, 02:12:16 am
True.  Rep. William Jefferson easily won a primary runoff after being indicted on 16 corruption charges, against a local news anchor no less.

He represents the New Orleans area though.

Moreno was a b!tch and made a point to act like one whenever she was near a TV camera. Rumors abounded that she A. was a lesbian and B. liked to sleep with older married men. The fact that she was a local news anchor doesn't in any way signify she was a good candidate. She was actually a pretty awful candidate even putting the whole race thing aside.

In fact, she was the worst candidate besides Jefferson in the primary. Even worse than Ray Nagin's best bud Kenya. She only got second place because most of the white vote coalesced behind her on account of her being the only white candidate. And of course Jefferson beat her because he's the black one. I hate it when race is an issue.

But eh, I'm still bitter about Cedric Richmond getting third. I'll probably end up voting for that guy in Lewis's signature, just for the hell of it. Oh well.

For what it's worth, Huntsman is one of my favorite Republicans.

Let me help...

1) Ideal choice Rick "loverboy" Santorum
2) Pawlenty
3) Jindal

Haha, I was about to post something to that effect but I see you beat me to it. Tongue

Jindal is a very competent administrator and a very intelligent man.

11866  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Chuck Schumer on: November 13, 2008, 11:21:32 pm
He'd make a great DNC Chair, as I said in the other thread. Whoever is taking Schumer's job now has some pretty big shoes to fill.

Haha, I haven't heard the Supreme Court Justice one yet, xfactor. Is anyone really saying that?

This "leak" means one of three things.
1. Obama is considering Hillary for the position and wanted to test the waters first.
2. Obama wants to appear to be considering her (for PR reasons or whatever) without actually seriously considering her.
3. Obama's White House is a lot looser than Obama's campaign. Nothing this big would have been leaked on accident during the campaign.

EMD and Xahar are both cool sometimes and really annoying at other times with Xahar being marginally better. Constine's a few steps below them. Bob Dole is, meh.

With newson's endorsement of Prop 8, he will have significant support in the upcoming election.

Lol, I'm pretty sure he didn't endorse Prop 8.

11874  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Democratic Senators to vote on Lieberman's fate on: November 13, 2008, 07:10:53 pm
Lieberman should be removed from his committee for the reasons brittain33 stated. Give him a different committee on some subject matter where he agrees with the party and can't try any stunts.

Of course he should be welcome to stay in the caucus, but even if there's a chance he leaves after his chairmanship is recinded it isn't exactly a horrible move for the Democrats to do.

59 Democratic Senators - Lieberman and Ben Nelson + Collins, Snowe, and Specter = cloture.

His vote may not even be neccesary, and even if Franken or Begich end up losing I really doubt Lieberman would vote against his principles on most things.

Mark Warner should run the DSCC; he would certainly be a good fundraiser.
