It's very interesting that the most 'patriotic americans' down there are always the ones with the confederate flag on their trucks. I think they mean to symbolize the racism of the region rather than any actual pride in the Confederacy.


No. Just no. Have you ever even been out of your home state? We make fun of the Confederate flag pickup truck type guys too.

Second, to everyone here who thinks or wishes that this is some way to punish the south, you're doing nothing but displaying your own intolerance on this subject. You blatantly stereotype an entire region of the country and assume for some reason everyone here is exactly the same politically. I'm not going to name any names, although this is honestly really directed at one person in particular, but please grow up.

That's absolutely right, and I shall continue to do so until you can manage to elect someone sane to your state governorship.

Referring to Louisiana/Jindal, I'm assuming? Say what you will about the guy, yeah he's got some superconservative beliefs that I really disagree with, but he's far from insane. Hell, the guy was a Rhodes scholar- he's probably smarter than you, me, or anyone else in this forum. And you do know that there was a Democratic governor of Louisiana all of three years ago, right?

Also, considering your avatar I don't think you have the right to make any sort of judgment call about electing sane people as governor, lol.

The amount of utter ignorance in this thread is suprising.

First off, the linked article is kind of silly because it tries to blame something on Obama just for not doing tokenism. It's pretty clear that he's just (at least mostly) picking the people he finds best for the job, so what if it happens to not have anyone from some region of the country?

11856  Election Archive / 2008 Elections / Re: What did you do during the campaign (up and down ballot) on: December 15, 2008, 06:11:56 pm
- bought a bumper sticker from the barackobama.com store way back in December '07 (counts as a donation)
- canvassed for Obama for the South Carolina primary
- attempted to convince everyone I knew to vote for Obama on Super Tuesday (even got my conservative mom to do so)
- did voter registration/canvassing work for Obama's general election campaign here in Barrow County, GA over the summer
- Canvassed for Cedric Richmond for LA-2 primary
- Donated a bit more money to Obama at some point
- Did some pre-election day phonebanking for Obama/Landrieu from the uptown New Orleans office
- Lit-dropped from 6:30-8:00 AM on election day for Obama, leaving sample ballots on the porches of some downtown neighborhood.

Just thought this was interesting. 

Results for Tulane's precinct, 14 13-A: Cao 168, Jefferson 12, Rhim 11, Kahn 5.

In last months primary it was: Moreno 504, Jefferson 198

In October it was: Cedric Richmond 38, Moreno 29, James Carter 23, Troy Carter 6, Kenya Smith 5, Jefferson 2, Byron Lee, 1

Obviously, there is little love lost between us and Bill Jefferson.

And the Presidential results: Obama 931, McCain 279, Ron Paul 15, and Nader (who visited campus as part of his campaign) 9.


I'm convinced most of Jefferson's voters here in November were just people who showed up to vote for Obama but didn't know anything about the Congressional race so they just ticked the box for the incumbent.


Btw, did you see the snow this morning? Grin

Probably.  It's possible we have one or two students who actually like Jefferson or really disliked Moreno, but probably most voted for the incumbent.

The snow was awesome.  New Orleans was about the last place I expected to see it!  First time since I've seen snow since I was 8, when I was in Denver. 

Wow. That is so alien and bizarre to me.

It must be weird to live in a refridgerator. I've only seen falling snow once, and that was on Memorial Day.

Well, I've never seen snow where I live.  Since I assume you did that one time, you're the one in the freezer, along with Jefferson's money. 

Me? No, that was at Kings Canyon.

Ah.  I was wondering "Did it snow in the South Bay while I wasn't looking?" 

Tongue

As far as I know, it hasn't snowed in the valley in over a decade.

My parents told me it snowed lightly in the 80's or something.  That's about it. 

When it first started snowing in New Orleans I thought it was hail.  Then I saw people going out and not ducking for shelter, so I knew it was safe then.

Lol, yeah. I got woken up by a friend who ran into the room shouting at me to look out my window at the snow. At first I tried to ignore him because I figured they were just doing a fake snow thing in Warren Quad (I'm in Butler) like they did in the Academic Quad last week.

On paper my current district is extremely safe for the Democratic Party. Dollar Bill however had something to say about that and proceeded over the past few years to give everyone a reason to kick him out.

I believe there is a 0.1% chance that one elector will refuse to vote for Obama because of this.

Why would it be that high?
There is a small possibility that one of the Democratic electors was such an embittered Clinton supporter that he/she would jump at any excuse not to vote for Obama.

There's also some chance that an elector is senile enough to consider this thing credible, or something.

There is no Barclays slate, though Kevin Delaney, who runs their operation on Sark, is standing.

This guy didn't win, so I'm assuming here the anti-Barclays won?
