Seriously, do these guys never stop polling?

And thus a new Fox News segment is born: "POLITICIANS: THEY'RE JUST LIKE US!"

Even I've got to side with the "homophobes" here.

Why?  Barney Frank is a standard centrist, or center left by american standards, as is McGreevey whatever his personal difficulties.  The two Republicans mentioned are not only less capable and intelligent by many degrees, they are intolerant ideological extremists.   Basically you have on one side two boring, moderate, compromise-seeking technocrats (legislator and executive respectively), and on the other two simpletons whose entire political career is based on trumpeting hatred of people like you and I, while being told how to vote by others in the GOP who are actually capable of understanding legislation.

But I forgot, your claim of moderation has long ago been discredited, Mr.Republican.

The main issue here is Jim McGreevey, and his actions as Governor of New Jersey.  He has proven himself to be an incompetent executive, and it is no exaggeration to say that he literally put lives in danger when he appointed his unqualified gay lover to head up Homeland Security for the state—one who couldn't even pass a basic security clearance.

Barney Franks' past indiscretions are largely forgivable as far as I'm concerned, but there's no way he can be seriously classified as a "moderate."

I got an e-mail yesterday from the Rice Campaign and looks like Inhofe absolutely does not even care about the needs of his own state, anymore.

You mean to say that Inhofe's opponent doesn't think Inhofe cares about Oklahoma?  Oh, no!

I like how he says he's not a rich guy, but he was able to drop $200k on the special election. I wish I had that kind of not-rich money.

In case you missed it, he self-financed by putting up a second mortgage on his house.

Lord, I wouldn't have even bothered with the damn thing if it was going to get brought up as a vote.

Aye.
10984  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: WA state rep resigns over cross-dressing gay escort scandal on: October 31, 2007, 04:45:42 pm
For those counting, this is the second Republican gay sex scandal in Spokane in recent memory involving ugly old men and stupid frat boys.

So, if I become a State Representative, stupid frat boys will have sex with me?  AWesum.
10985  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Rothenberg: Don't buy the '08 spin on: October 31, 2007, 04:43:55 pm
The reason Republicans gained statehouses in 1986 was because there were a lot of open Democratic seats in places like Oklahoma, Alabama, Arizona, and South Carolina that were increasingly becomming more Republican.  I think only two Democratic incumbents(Tony Earl in WI and Bill White in Texas) were defeated. 

An anti-incumbent mood can be just as much "anti-incumbent party" as it is "anti-incumbent."
10986  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: The Hill: Cochran (R-MS) Mulling Retirement on: October 31, 2007, 11:25:21 am
Would Mike Moore be able to win here in a presidential year?

Harry would say "yes," but the correct answer, of course, is "no."

Well, I'll be more diplomatic and say that it would be difficult, even with the best Democratic candidate.

Indeed.  I do think it would be in single digits, but like MA-05 for Republicans, there's no way a Democrat can throw himself over the 50% line for a federal race there, no matter who he is.
10987  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Rothenberg: Don't buy the '08 spin on: October 31, 2007, 11:24:07 am
When I consider a year to be anti-incumbent,  I take a look at more than just the results for House/Senate, because that's only part of the story.  You also need to look at State Houses, which can have divergent results.

In 1986, for example, Republicans lost a bunch of Senate seats (and control) and slid in the House of Reps, but gained in the statehouses.  Voters are more complex than they're oft given credit for being.

Broun should have expected no less—he's an accidental Congressman who won in an insanely Republican district on the back of Democratic voters.

Do we even need a Lt. Gov?

Constitutionally, yes, and for this reason - he could open a booth by now.  The way our constitution is, only the Governor or Lt. Governor can, so MasterJedi is powerless when it comes to this.  HappyWarrior has already logged on twice today, I say we give him 1 more day.

Exactly.  And if there's one thing Inks knows how to do, it's how to open a round of balloting.

A carbon tax is a non-starter.  Carbon cap-and-trade is the politically safer route, even though they're essentially the same thing.
10993  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Gubernatorial/Statewide Elections / Re: MS: Eaves compiles all the facts about Barbour onto one concise website on: October 30, 2007, 11:37:43 pm
I just went to the Eaves website...


Who's On Jesus' Side in Mississippi?

His momma read him Bible stories at bed time and rocked him to sleep singing the old hymn "In the Garden." He gave his life to Christ at age 8 and walked where Jesus did at age 9. Thirty-years later, he stood on the banks of the Jordan River as three of his own sons professed faith and were baptized. His wife's name is Angel. He is pro-life, pro-prayer, pro-Bible literacy and pro-guns. He's a Southern Baptist running for office.



Hahahahah. Wow. lol Eaves. lol Mississippi.

I hear Haley Barbour kneels to the golden calf.

Jesus directed Katrina to Mississippi because he's angry.

There can also be as much as 800K to 1M dollars thrown into D1 and D2 races in this last week.

From Dick Codey alone.

Correct, from Dick Codey but through the Senate Majority PAC.

I'd also count on another $1M to D2 (possibly to D1 as well) from Norcross.

10996  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: Estate Tax Reform Bill on: October 30, 2007, 06:52:45 pm
I'm not exactly sure I even like the concept of estate taxes in general—retaxing what's already been taxed.

I'll abstain here.
10997  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: So much for running a competitive campaign in North Carolina on: October 30, 2007, 06:24:31 pm
What a retard. Why didn't he just stay closeted? Doesn't he care about Gays and himself to realize that he needs to be in Congress in order to make an impact.

And you're a Democrat.  Wonderful.
When I said that I was kind of pissed about loosing the Democrats chances in North Carolina. I am not anti-gay in anyway and am for Civil Unions.

I'm for civil unions too, but I don't think it should ever actually happen because it might hurt Democrats' chances.

No offense, but I did this for a State Representative race three years ago.  No one reads these things.

Some campaign spending numbers for targeted districts in New Jersey.  Keep in mind that Senate and Assembly candidates oft have combined accounts, so the totals here are district-wide (one Senate seat, two Assembly seats).

http://www.politicsnj.com/money-race-13479

Most eye-opening number:

DISTRICT 12
All Democrats
Received: 4.270 million
Spent: 4.046 million
On hand: 223,589.40

All Republicans
Received: 658,695.10
Spent: 563,245.30
On hand: 107,055.20
