Is it worth the fiddy dollars?
11902  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Harry Reid looking to remove Joe Lieberman as committee head on: November 07, 2008, 03:21:26 pm
Just caucus with us, Joe.

You can have him. 

Ok so assuming we keep the Coleman, Stevens and Chambliss seats, you guys have 57 Senate seats. Then you kick out Lieberman and you're down to 56. Let's say 2010 is a terrible year for you guys and you're down to 49. Don't tell me that you wouldn't be kicking yourself for kicking the guy out. I really would love to see it play out that way.

Phil, who can conceivably lose in 2010 for the Democrats other than Harry Reid?  The only way I see Salazar lose, is an absolute Democratic obliteration across the board.

Bad years create some pretty unlikely vulnerable Senators, my friend.

I mean, even if it's a total s***storm for the Dems in 2010, where are the seven seats even going to come from?

Salazar, Bayh, Reid, Murray, and Feingold are the only ones who seem like they could face even a remotely competitive reelection. Assuming they all lose, then who?

Okay, assume that this plan was enacted and California, Oregon, Washington, Hawaii and Alaska voted on monday.

The last states to close on tuesday would be presumably the next states over. Then THEY would have reduced turnout since the election would already be decided before polls close. Then what?

It's only a matter of time before a black judge arbitrarily decides it's racist and overturns it. Same thing happenned to a short lived open container law in New Orleans when I used to live there.

New Orleans doesn't have an open container law? I was under the impression we did.

Assuming if he leaves the caucus, it's not like he suddenly become a superconservative on everything. He'd still vote with the Dems at least half the time. Lieberman's not the kind of guy who would totally pull a Zell Miller on ideology.

In LA-2, Moreno lost to (gag) incumbent Congressman Jefferson

Looking at a photo of Moreno, I don't think that that outcome was ever much in doubt.

Of course; everyone 'round these parts saw it coming a mile away.

I don't see how Murray could lose. The only Republican who could potentially make it competitive has his eyes on Governor.

How bout Rossi? lol

Elector? Transition Team Operator? Talk show circuit for a few months?

All the "likely competitive" races are held by Republicans. If that holds, and assuming nothing deluges between now and 2010, it looks like the Democrats might pick up some Senate seats yet again.

But of course as the Spade says it's really way too far out to tell.

I love it, Castle for Senate. He's a moderate, won't serve for long, and will build bipartisan rapport. Lunar, you best contact someone in the Obama camp with that! Tongue

I discovered last week that a college friend's father was actually a colleague of Perdue's in the NC state legislature. From what I've heard, she's apparently a bit of an idiot.

LA-2 and LA-4 had primary runoffs on tuesday and will not have the general election until December. Louisiana's system is weird this year.

In LA-2, Moreno lost to (gag) incumbent Congressman Jefferson and Jefferson will go on to win against the token opposition.

In LA-4, Carmouche beat Banks on the Democratic side while Fleming beat Gorman on the Republican side. Carmouche and Fleming will face each other next month (Fleming will probably win).

11914  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Do you know who else is from Delaware? on: November 05, 2008, 11:35:58 pm
Shoot. Don't know how that'd work out. Obama could use a staunch ally in the Senate, I guess.

I couldn't hate this choice more.  I think he would make a great CoS, but he needs to stay in Congress, perhaps in two years try and make a run for Majority Leader, or Speaker. I really like the guy, and think it would be smarter for him to stay in Congress, than to take a job in the White House that he will probably only keep for 2 or 3 years.

^^^^

Exactly what I've been thinking.

What's the deal with OH-15?

Obama has no coattails.

I meant, as in, why haven't the networks called it even though it's completely in and Stivers has a wide margin?
11918  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Your precinct results? on: November 05, 2008, 04:10:44 pm
Orleans Parish 14th Ward, Precinct 13A:

Obama: 931 (75.2%)
McCain: 279 (22.5%)
Ron Paul: 15 (1.2%)
Nader: 10 (0.8%)
socialists: 3 (0.2%)

This precinct is basically just Tulane University plus a something like two adjacent city blocks.

So, on the offchance that someone finds the missing paperwork or whatever from early voting, your wife could be convicted for a felony? Hardcore. Tongue
11921  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2008 U.S. Presidential Election Results / Re: Georgia on: November 05, 2008, 01:37:54 am
McCain at only 53% is actually a rather poor showing.

voting problems in west palm beach...

I wasn't talking about the Black Panther intimidation thing; I agree with you that it is a very bad thing and something should be done.

I was referencing you directly linking Obama, the reference to Wright, and the Soetoro thing. That is you being bitter.
11924  Election Archive / 2008 Elections / Re: Limbaugh apparently reports of problems at my polling place. on: November 04, 2008, 03:27:36 pm
While that certainly is a bit unsettling, it's quite hackish of you to connect that with Obama, jmfcst.

silly me, why would I associate Obama with racists...after all, it's not like he was baptized and pastored by a racist for 20 years

my apologies

Soreloseritus?

no, IIRC, his Muslim alias was Soetoro, not Soreloseritus

Look, I usually have a lot of respect for you but right now you're being straight-up bitter.

What's gotten into you, man?
