Aww. I miss the days when I got to "discover" things like this.

To answer your question, the cause is primarily religious. They're mostly Dutch Reformed types.

Even Washington has a Dutch enclave in Lynden. Here's the gay marriage map for Whatcom County, courtesy of Alcon. You can probably figure out where it is.

About 3.6 overall.

Only 0.6 for 2014 thus far.

If Sheldon were the swing voter again, would he allow a Republican to be majority leader? Would he want to be majority leader? Are there any Democrats he would support for it?

Andy Hill has raised more money than anyone else in any district, has been generally inoffensive, and the district is only marginally Democratic at best... I'm having trouble seeing him lose.

I think McBride may have been favored against him already, but I would consider that seat Lean D now, which would leave Rs/Sheldon at 25-24.

Not sure what the next most likely D pick-up would be. Maybe the 28th?

Andy Hill has raised a ton of money (he'll probably run for Congress, but maybe not this year).

Fain's seat is usually close. Democrats would need to hold everything (including the 30th!). Hmm.

Summary please, Meeker!! Smiley

Montana is small enough (and swingy enough for statewide elections) that I could see this one getting close as the election nears.

Gun control is one of those issues I don't care a lot about, or feel very strongly towards either way.

But you can definitely tell which side has a weaker argument based on the silly things they say.

This only became much of a story once he had already resigned, so I'm inclined to believe it was in fact a predominately internal struggle.

Some employees found out their boss doesn't think that they or their friends and family are human beings, and were not happy. What a shocker.

Spare me these claims of McCarthyism. The religious right started this war and now that they are losing they're crying victim. Boohoo. Roll Eyes

No. You and Tweed made your dramatic exits and came right back. You're going to have to deal with looking silly.

I just eat. I don't really categorise it into a 'style'.

Hah. "I'm a gay Scottish atheist Torie! Look at me!!!"

You are one of the forum's biggest attention whores and clearly obsessed with style & image. You think you can just dismiss other peoples opinions and values based that principle? Again... Hah.

Since Ben is longer AG, I'm ending this vote.
16  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: Article of Impeachment Against Attorney General Benconstine on: March 20, 2014, 01:25:35 am
This is still at 5-3. It looks like the President has appointed Maxwell to the position. As I don't seen an official resignation from Ben, until Maxwell (or someone else) swears in, Ben should technically still be in office. I will leave the vote open until a majority is reached or a new AG is sworn in.

Take the inflated self importance of Harry, the smugness of Gustaf, the unpopular views of Opebo, the social awkwardness of J.J., and you get Link. I can't say I was a fan.

TBBT is basically Starbucks. It's what the usual suspects will instantly bash to prove their imaginary superiority over everyone else.

If New York is red on the Senate map, then Washington should be as well. Or vice versa.

I would respect these people more if they just ran as independents. But I realize that's easier said than done to some extent.

I wouldn't say he's favored, but it'll be a tough race for her. This is Pete von Reichbauer's old district after all!

So the district has a history of this sort of thing. Tongue

Don't forget Syria - that conflict has been giving off Cold War vibes for a long time now.

Do you think he's favored against Eide?

He was never the good kind of moderate, and he's probably just bitter he got demolished in the State Auditor primary.
