Muhammad cartoons controversy, Soccer World Cup, Israel-Hezbollah war, U.S. Mid-terms... not sure about the other six events. Perhaps the execution of Saddam Hussein, provided it takes place this weekend.

DeLay also implored conservatives to start digging into Obama’s past. He said Obama’s record in the Illinois Senate was on par with a “Marxist leftist.” Citing defeated U.S. Senate candidate Harold Ford of Tennessee, DeLay said Obama was attempting to disguise his liberal views. (Read Amanda Carpenter’s report on Obama and his conflicting rhetoric.)

Well, it is now proven that DeLay doesn't know what Marxism is.

I assume the FSM is running as a Democrat (since it openly opposes Intelligent Design... at least the christian version of ID) and Cthulu as a Republican (since its... well, evil Tongue )?

I focused here on the main external intelligence agencies operating abroad. Despite its possible involvement in the Litvinenko case, the FSB is officially Russia's domestic intelligence agency only (with operations abroad being SVR's responsibility).
4558  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Election What-ifs? / Re: How would each state vote with German parties? on: December 08, 2006, 06:42:26 am
Social Democrats would win most states Kerry won outside the coasts, although I'm not sure how agrian areas vote in Germany so I won't comment there.

Agrarian areas = CDU areas



Left Party would be strong in a few urban areas but obviously wouldn't win any states.

Same with the FDP and Greens (the latter part of the sentence).

16 years of Republican Presidency.

Actually, it's 20 years (2001-2021).

The idea shocked me so much I lost the capacity to count!

A's pretty generic - seems like it's pretty much an unspectacular dem v. rep race where neither really brings over anyone from the other side, and where the unpopularity of Dubya carries over enough to tilt the race to the dems.

I'll say Gore v. Romney or something like that.

B's similar, but with  some of the Dem states you have crossing over, I'm going to say this is one where Hillary runs and fails to "connect" with those that already dislike her.  Again she could be running against most reps, but I'll pick Romney, as the one that could produce that result.  Could be McCain, too, I suppose.

With C, I'm assuming you've got an idea how this could occur, but I really don't.  Hard to see Michigan, Pennsylvania, Minnesota and Wisconsin going to Republicans, but Ohio, Iowa and Florida to the Dems, not to mention New Mexico and Colorado.

I guess Richardson might pull those lean rep states over, but I'm not sure which Republican pulls all those Midwestern states over.



I can say so much that those maps weren't put together randomly.

Bonus point for the person who finds out what the basis for those maps was and what exactly I have changed (isn't that hard to guess).

And I told you that C is the weird one. Wink

On August 16, 2006 thousands are killed in a massive terrorist attack. Seven commerical airliners are blown up over New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago, Newark, Miami, San Francisco and Washington, D.C.

Uh, I'm not exactly sure how the election of Kerry could have effected the work of the British police in a negative way.


It wasn't just the Brits who broke the case. Plus, he would have killed the wiretaps as soon as he came into office.

Ah, I see, it's that "if the Republicans lose, the terrorists will win" thing...

"Michael Moore Hates America".

Awesome title. Almost beats "Snakes on a Plane". Wink Moore should have made a counter-rebuttal film titled "Michael Moore Hates 'Michael Moore Hates America'".
4572  Election Archive / 2008 Elections / Re: Moving onnnnn upppp.... on: November 30, 2006, 06:57:07 pm
This means an extra-long campaign once the nominees are decided then (unless a nomination goes all the way to the convention, which would probably put the opposing party in with a huge advantage.)

Therefore I would suggest to pack all of the primaries into a three or four week period right before the nominating conventions, instead of holding them so early on.

I understand that everyone wants to be one of the first states to hold a presidential primary and there's probably no way to reverse this trend, but it doesn't make sense to settle for a presidential candidate almost a year before the election.
4573  Election Archive / 2008 Elections / Re: Moving onnnnn upppp.... on: November 30, 2006, 06:48:10 pm
Senate President Richard Codey has scheduled a vote for Monday on legislation to move the 2008 New Jersey Presidential primary to the first Tuesday in February.  The primary is currently scheduled for the last Tuesday in February.  "Moving our primary up to early February will bring New Jersey back to the center of the national debate on our future and send a clear message to Presidential candidates that we are not just an ATM machine to be drawn from after the primary candidates have been chosen.," said Codey.  (11/30/06)

It's about time....
It seems like every state is moving up their primary though...

Um, if this trend continues, the whole primary season will last from mid-January to early February one day... with Super Tuesdays (or should we say Mega Tuesdays?) held three or four weeks in a row or something like that. Wink

Not that I don't understand the reason... who wants to be the state which holds its primary when nobody cares about the results anymore?

But maybe it would be a better idea to push all the primaries to a later date instead of holding them earlier and earlier.
