The real leader is whoever has gotten the most SEC games right. The others are essentially exhibition games.

Easy there, clanga.

Personally I spent my whole day watching football on Saturday and saw no football at all on Sunday. My interest in the NFL is as low as it's ever been, but college football still captures my imagination just like it always has.

Perhaps you should drop your preconceived notions about what "a modern European country" entails. Election results in Ireland always tale until the next day to be declared. England similarly often sees long delays before results are given. Not everywhere is exactly like the United States, backtored.

Humid subtropical at school, Mediterranean at home. One of those things is much more pleasant than the other.

Ballot secrecy is absolutely respected as long as voters have the possibility to keep their vote secret. If someone wants to make their vote known, I don't see what's the problem.

The problem is that if someone can make their vote public, then they can also be coerced to make their vote public. The secret ballot isn't really secret unless there's no way for a voter to prove that they cast a ballot for a particular party; otherwise, the possibility of voter intimidation is always present.

This is why voting by mail is so problematic.

Atlas Forum IRC Channel can be deleted and replaced by a new thread, really. There's nothing in there that's of more than immediate value.

Young, rich, not white (only one so far), not really comfortable being described as liberal but sufficiently inculcated in that worldview that saying "not liberal" would be dishonest.

(yes)

The clientelistic nature of Irish politics also discourages new political movements that are not recognizably part of the establishment.

Actually, if we're doing registration, I need to change this:

I haven't lived there in over a year, but my registration is still in Montgomery, MD.

Simfan, I can't tell what metric you're using to put Oregon over Michigan State or Virginia Tech over Ohio State.
