Indiana could start coming in as early as 6:15, though that's not very likely. I'd say that IN-08 will be Republicans first pickup of the night though.

Personally, I consider a day 24 hours. It's the most technical and accurate way of operating. Going by hours, Bacon King was inactive for 3 weeks straight, which I think would make a very compelling case in the court. Even Marokai stated earlier that Bacon King is no longer a Senator.

Not that I'm an elected official, but I oppose the death penalty. I probably wouldn't make it a campaign issue, though I think I have some valid points that would appeal to liberals and conservatives. Tongue

I don't see why the courts would even need to examine this, as it seems clear cut to me. Bacon King went for 3 straight weeks without posting, and by law, he is no longer a Senator, regardless of what the PPT does.

As much as I think Bacon King should stay in the Senate, we'd be setting a bad precedent by breaking the law in order to keep him in there. Sad If he wants to stay in, he can always run in the special election.

That would I think be a fair compromise. Let the vacancy stand and then have BK run in the special. Its not like he would have a problem winning the special as a JCPer.

Sounds reasonable.

It's not reasonable at all and I would caution against falling for that trap. Coming off the heels of three weeks of inactivity wouldn't make him an attractive choice for people to vote for. The right would put up a moderate and/or likable figure and then demolish him with this as an issue.
It's the best option right now. If you think he'd get creamed, then encourage him not to run in favor of someone else.

Bacon King has done an admirable job in the Senate, and it would be a shame to see him go. Sad

I am actually going to put a lot of the analysis tonight and tomorrow night of the 2010 Mid-Terms on DVR as well as the returns on CNN from 3:45 pm Tuesday (Situation Room) - 5:30 am Wednesday.  I've got two hours on DVR tonight from 8-10, then I've got 7 hours tomorrow night from 4-11 and then nearly 14 hours Tuesday night/Wednesday morning.  I'm going to use up 23 hours of my DVR capacity just in the next 60 hours.
I'll record some. I can't do too much though, otherwise I'll overwrite my movies and recordings of Ugly Betty, Survivor, and King of the Hill.
11411  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Are you nervous about these elections? on: October 31, 2010, 05:45:33 pm
Not at all. I'm confident all the candidates I support in my state will win, minus one, who I'll be working hard for on election day. There are some others I'd like to win, but I won't be distraught if they lose. I'm pretty confident we'll narrowly take the House, and also realize we won't take the Senate, so my expectations aren't ridiculously high.

More than anything, though, I'm nervous about the lame duck session.

Guys, I really don't see myself voting for this.  I'm not a solid "NAY", so if you guys want to sway me, give it your best shot.
With less and less students pursuing the math and science fields, our nation is quickly falling behind in these fields, something that must be stopped. We are not discouraging students from pursuing a career in the arts, heck, that's what I'll be doing. We're simply trying to bring up the sagging number of students in a field that is vital to the growth of our economy as well as technological advancements.
11413  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: How Would The Senate Elections Play Out If All 100 Seats were Up For Election? on: October 31, 2010, 05:01:53 pm
Pretending that no Tea Party candidates would oust a sitting incumbent and that obvious resignations occur (Ensign), I'd say the following Senators would lose:
Franken
Begich
Landreiu
Hagan
Shaheen
Tester
McCaskill
Webb
Brown(OH)

Can't think of a couple more off the top of my head. It's hard to say, as many factors attribute to how a seat will play out.

I was with him on a bus the other day.....

What?  Why were you taking the bus with Mike Pence?

Like I said, he's been touring the state to build up name recognition. He held a bus tour, and I was on it. Had a chance to talk with him, Larry Buchson, and several other local officials. I must say, I'm extremely impressed with Pence. He's a very personable guy who seems to be in this for the right reasons.

I was with him on a bus the other day, and I heard several of his aides talking about it. He is touring the state heavily to build up name recognition for a Gubernatorial run in 2012. He isn't too crazy about being President yet.

SoFE: Teddy, obviously.

Attorney General: Junkie would be splendid at it.
SoIA: Oakvale has done a great job as Governor, and would provide something new to an otherwise bland office.
SoEA: Benconstine
GM: NC Yankee

11421  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: What is your first election night memory? on: October 30, 2010, 01:37:46 pm
I remember knowing that Bush won the Presidency in 2000, but I don't remember the details. I remember voting for Bush in 1st grade in a mock election. One person voted for Gore, and she said it was because "she thought he was cute."  My best memory is in 2002. When I woke up the next morning, my Dad said "I have good news and bad news. The bad news, is that Tim Shallenburger lost to Sebelius for Governor. The good news is that Jim Talent won the Senate race in Missouri."

It has to show how nerdy you are when you care about a neighboring state's Senate race at the age of 8.

I'm somewhat unhappy. I asked Teddy to marry me, so we could have a great relationship and give Atlasia the best doggone elections ever. Sadly, he isn't ready to take the next step yet. Sad
