blotch

Actually a tiny smiley face, I think.

I miss the guy because he was a genuinely interesting poster and seemed to have good things to say most of the time.


I recall him making a thread a while back or something, though I don't remember why.

who the hell is going to stay in on a Friday to watch a debate?  we might be looking at the worst ratings ever

That kind of makes sense, actually. Almost nobody watching gives both McCain and Obama kind of a "trial run" debate before the debates with (what I'm assuming to be) better timeslots.

Exactly what BRTD said. Sorry I had not made myself more clear.
11905  Election Archive / 2008 Elections / Re: Has Obama already lost the "Money Battle?" on: September 22, 2008, 03:11:04 pm
Do you actually have a comparison?

End August cash-on-hand numbers:

DSCC - 33.7 Mio. $
NRSC - 26.8 Mio. $

DCCC - 54.0 Mio. $
NRCC - 14.4 Mio. $

Not a lot in the Senate and but about $40 M.  The question is, how much "shoring up."

The Vorlon figured an 80/20 split.  That would make it an $86 M gap.

I think you are taking Vorlon's "eighty cent" comment out of context; he was referring the effectiveness of using the RNC money directly for McCain after maneuvering through bureaucratic limitations and whatnot, not the percentage of the total RNC load he expected to be used on Congressional stuff.

Keep in mind the RNC will have to shore up the NRCC and NRSC, both of which are IIRC lagging significantly behind their Democratic counterparts.

11908  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: Amendment (...) Regarding the Role of Parties... (Debate Open) on: September 22, 2008, 01:02:31 pm
I decided to improve my social station
Joined a fraternity organisation
Tucked in my shirt, signed on the line
Right away they said about to improve my mind
The car I drove, the books I read
The food I ate, the booze I drank
The girls I took out
My breath

Said kid, we don't much like the way you walk
And you gonna have to change the way you talk;
They said your dress is kind of sludgy
And your attitude is mighty grudgy;
Said you got to learn to bubble;
you got to bubble with enthusiasm; so I bubbled

said the most important thing you can't forget
Is learning the entire greek alphabet;
I never did really understand
How that's gonna make me anymore a man
But I learned it
I can whip through that son-of-a-beta backwards in five seconds

Then they hit me with some pretty bad news
Concerning the payment of monthly dues
I never did know where that money went
And I never was sure it was real well spent
But I paid it
I'm no troublecauser and besides I figured that's life
If you want good friends they're gonna cost you

Well, it finally got to be party time
I got a great big old jug of wine
I went back to the house in about an hour
where the boys were drinking whiskey sours
Brandy alexanders
Frozen daiquiris
Reciting the greek alphabet to one another

I could see I was gonna have to do my very best
To get myself out of that fraternity mess
I stood right there outside the door
And I chugged that wine like never before
Walked inside and bubbled
All over a couple of their dates

So now everything's back to normal again
But there's still lots of room for improvement my friend
'cause that fraternity stuff is too much for me
Next time I'm gonna join a sorority
That'll really give me something to bubble about

What is this song?

11913  Election Archive / 2008 U.S. Presidential General Election Polls / Re: 538 On the Cell Effect (We keep hitting controversial polling topics, haha) on: September 21, 2008, 12:23:41 am
We're talking about people who don't have landlines, States.

If you read the article, it claims that seven out of eight cell-only users have favorable opinions of Obama.

Yeah, but they are young voters and we know their history of reliability when election time rolls around. So it probably evens out.

True, but pollsters already screen for likely voters and all.

The "adjective noun".  I wonder if an English teacher's reading this.

Well, opebo does have some sort of English degree, IIRC it might be a Master's.

I want a cover of "Never Gonna Give You Up", because, dude, you have both the hair and the voice.

lol DWTL hates Hindus? I mean, on top of all of his other crazy contradicting beliefs its not that suprising, but where in the world does that come from?
11918  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: Green Energy Infrastructure Investment Bill of 2008 on: September 20, 2008, 04:20:02 pm
Aye
11919  Election Archive / 2008 Elections / Re: Name some Obama cabinet members on: September 20, 2008, 04:17:32 pm
LOL at your list, but:

Secretary of State - Mahmoud Ahmadinejad

He's already going to be McCain's SoS, according to DWTL!
11920  Election Archive / 2008 Elections / Re: indiana? on: September 20, 2008, 04:16:08 pm
If there was a neighboring state effect, I'd bet a lot of it would be centered in the Chicago-area bits of Indiana.

edit- spelling
11921  Election Archive / 2008 Elections / Re: Palin is a young earth creationist who believes that we are in the end times. on: September 20, 2008, 04:13:30 pm
also, this is a he said she said thingy...why not wait to hear what palin thinks from palin herself?

^^^^ this. Though honestly I wouldn't be suprised if she was a YEC.
11922  Election Archive / 2008 Elections / Re: Name some McCain cabinet members on: September 20, 2008, 04:10:43 pm
If McCain wants to fix things here will be his cabinet:

Sec. of State: Pres. Mahmoud Amendinejad (?)
Sec. of Defense: Gen. David Patreus
Sec. of Treasury: Rep. Ron Paul (R)
Atty General: US Atty Chris Christie (R)
Sec. of Education/Transportation/Energy/HS/HHS: eliminated
you're either an idiot, or you're kidding.

I'm fairly certain he's not kidding; he was going on the other day about how Amendinejad had the best policy on Israel or some such.
11923  Election Archive / 2008 Elections / Re: Name some Obama cabinet members on: September 20, 2008, 03:41:48 pm
I wonder where he'd put John Kerry, who is probably eager for a prestige appointment.

Homeland Security?
11924  Election Archive / 2008 Elections / Re: Name some Obama cabinet members on: September 20, 2008, 02:44:44 pm
Dick Lugar- Secretary of State
Hillary Clinton- Attorney General? lol
11925  Election Archive / 2008 Elections / Any chance Maine and/or Nebraska have split EVs? on: September 18, 2008, 04:52:40 pm
I doubt McCain gets anything from Maine, though I do vaguely recall something about Obama being somewhat competitive in the Omaha-area CD. What do you think?
