Republicans will likely hold onto the Washington Senate. Democrats will gain the 48th, and Republicans will gain the 30th, resulting in the same 26-23 split we currently have.

A Democratic victory isn't impossible. There are a couple of marginally Democratic seats the Republicans picked up in 2010 that are in play, but if the primary is any indication (it usually is) they won't be flipping in November.

No. The partisans may have been more equally split between Democrats and Republicans, but they were still partisans.

I won the game.


Oh, come now, I think we all know who had been arguing for dissolution the longest... Grin

Are our two posts mutually exclusive? I don't think they are. Smiley

It wasn't a bad show. It was popular, though, so naturally the usual suspects are obligated to hate it.

I concur.

By the way, just because you don't make money doesn't mean yoy aren't contributing to society or are a loser. Don't you know anyone disabled? Anyway you were probably being sarcastic, I hope.
Of course if you have a good excuse to live off of somebody else then you're alright (you should still probably thank the person helping you more often).  Not being sarcastic though.  If you're a healthy 25yo with no good excuses and still living off of another person's work (whether that be mommy and daddy, a rich aunt or Uncle Sam), you're a loser.  A leach.  A drain.

Does being a woman trapped in a man's body count as a good reason?

It's similar to organ but there's definitely a subtle middle syllable in there.

He has been a weirdo forever. Not sure why it took some of you so long to notice.

The only thing that worries me is you know Jaleel White is getting ideas.

How is that worrisome? That would be amazing!

And Ukrel can re-connect with the Tanner family in a second crossover episode and accidentally clone Michelle so both of the Olsen twins can star without having to share the same character. Okay, I'm sold.

I also miss Carl Winslow.

The ex-President is using an obtuse reading of the Constitution to justify his intention of stalling and undermining the progress we are attempting to force. TNF, as Acting Senate President, and especially in a time of crisis such as this one, very much has implicit authority to cast a tiebreaking vote, especially in the face of cynical stalling tactics by the Senate right.

Oakvale, whose open slant (and most likely political stake) in this case is well-documented, should certainly not be involved in this frivolous case.

Your unsolicited political attacks are not welcome or appropriate here. Please cease posting them immediately.

Thank you.

I've always been a little disturbed at how easily some you just casually dismiss Chappaquiddick. He obviously was not a good person.

Do you have any idea how ridiculous you sound?

I've gotten multiple calls like that. I've started ignoring them. One of the perils of being in a partisan database...

If Saddam had stayed in power he probably would have had to deal with the Arab Spring and the potential civil war that would ensue.

I seem to recall Oregon's economy being in rough shape well before the recession. Perhaps they simply didn't have as far to fall as other states did.

This thread has fallen all the way to page 3. It's essentially all the same conflict but this still seems most appropriate in this thread for now-

ISIS takes Assad's last base in Raqqa: http://www.bbc.com/news/world-middle-east-28918792

The Division 17 base was taken in July.

In other news, non-ISIS rebels fearing fall of Aleppo (to Assad) is coming soon: http://online.wsj.com/articles/syrian-forces-advance-on-aleppo-rebels-fear-another-siege-1407860811

Wow. I have a new underdog to cheer for. I just might have to make a donation!
