Nah, a bloodbath would be losing about 10 Senate seats or more and not gaining any governorship. This is probably not what's going to happen next week.

We are likely to lose the Senate because the map is heavily slanted against us and because the GOP actually recruited some good candidates for a change, but the aggregate numbers still indicate a very modest Republican edge.

Isn't Loras a Dr. Seuss character?

If the Lorax is the first thing you think about when trying to make a pun about Loras, you clearly haven't seen Game of Thrones. Tongue

There is still the runoff. Tabaré Vázquez is the favourite, but Luis Lacalle has still some little chances of winning. By the moment we have an almost secure FA majority in the Chamber of Deputies and a tie with the opposition in the Senate, which will be eventually broken depending on the runoff. I mean, it's better not count the chickens before they are hatched. Just in case Wink

Didn't Vazquez get about 47%? Tongue It would take a pretty huge swing for him to lose the runoff.

How come the Poroshenko bloc won so many more seats than Popular Front despite the popular vote tie?

These are just the FPTP seats. Basically, there are 225 PR seats and 225 FPTP seats (of which 27 had no election this time due to Russian occupation of Crimea and parts of Donetsk and Luhansk, so they will stay vacant for the moment). Allocation of the PR seats is pending the final count.

Yeah but this doesn't explain why there's such a discrepancy between FPP and PR results.

Yeah, this last round of election has been fairly OK, with FA doing well in Uruguay, pro-Western parties dominating in Ukraine, Dilma being reelected, and islamists losing power in Tunisia. Oh, and Ford getting ousted in Toronto. Tongue Still doesn't make up for the utter disaster that was Sweden/Scotland, though.

Oh. Decimals + LOL POLLS IN ALASKA = Sullivan win.

And Dilma Rousseff won't be reelected.

When all hope seems lost, Phil's predictions are the only thing that makes me regain confidence. Smiley

Affordable Care Act, the movie.

Hopefully in 2160 a world-acclaimed movie will be made about President Obama's glorious struggle to bring health insurance to the people. The material's definitely there.

That one is probably going to be made sometime in the 2020s though.

Nah, it would bear a too partisan connotation if made so early. But give it 3 or 4 decades, and Obamacare will be widely acclaimed as one of America's greatest successes.

They weren't much different during the mid-late 70s

Perhaps my bias comes from the fact that the cheerleaders at my school are the most narcissistic, hive minded, self-centered, attention seeking, self-gratifying pieces of filth I have ever witnessed.

The impotent rage born from failure to bed a cheerleader is strong with this one.

So, I'm planning to move on to Lincoln (the big northwestern State) in a week or so, then do Oregon, Washington, Nevada, and end this in beauty with the Californias. Does that work for you guys?

Actually, when looking for the political future of Brazil, the economic debate will be hugely important, because Dilma swears she'll double down on the economic fundamentals that are making the economy tumble.

Thankfully it's the voters, and not the stock markets, who resolved this debate.

Well, I guess if Brazil used an Electoral College system, Aecio would be winning comfortably. Tongue

I actually agree with politicus here, and found this to be a better-than-usual Snowstalker post.  Not saying that it's a good idea to eliminate school athletics, but I would certainly be in favor of deemphasizing them and putting some of that funding and fanfare towards, well, more academic extracurriculars and competitions.
