I could get all worked up everytime someone yells "Ginger" from their car when I'm walking into a store. Or I could care less.

You REALLY think have red hair and pigmentation is akin to being black or latino? Roll Eyes

I try to think like the great Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. I judge people on the content of their character. Regardless of race. Seriously, I do.

Unfortunately, much of your posting history demonstrates otherwise.

This. Though if you combined Weiland and Pressler's votes i'd ALMOST be willing to say they'd be closer than Brown.

Special Prosecutor investigating Kane's office - http://mobile.philly.com/news/politics/?wss=/philly/news/politics&id=273355891&

But Kane has nothing to worry about. Some kids on their computers said so.

No, what some kids on their computer said is Wolf has nothing to worry about over this.

They're right.

Could we PLEASE qnot judge an entire religion on Ernest's inappropriate jokes? Thank you.
Huh I think people here are judging Baptists based on what they actually do, not my bad jokes.  I just don't get this post of yours at all.
Read some of the posts above and all will become clear.

Why are you making fun of Oklahomans?  We are very well educated.  We have many very good institutions of higher learning.  Oklahoma and Oklahoma State are among the best universities in the world.  My education at Northwestern Oklahoma State University is just as good as a Harvard education, only a heck of a lot cheaper. 

Just came here to post this.

God, the stupid LITERALLY hurts. It hurts!

Pre "conversion" Libertas was the worst, by content and volume (as even he'd no likely agree).

but hamilton was still a first class irredeemable schmuck.

Damn. Brownback is going to lose the Labor Day election. As for the one in November, he'll still win, of course.

Quoted for posterity.

Oh, you're not familiar with how it works around here, pal. Trust me when I say you didn't have to bother quoting it.

This is true. People usually remember Phil's stupid predictions.

Cataloguing them however....Wink

     Glad to see you finally make it to the Senate. You can give them a slight respite from the waves of far-left nuttery.

With waves of far-right nuttery. Oh joy.

I'm astonished at the number of yes votes, even though it's still a minority.

One elderly audience member shoved a protester as he weaved his way through the tables. Another, 73-year old Army veteran Turk Culberson, angrily stalked them out of the building, clutching his cane as if it were a baseball bat.

Good man, the cane is the weapon of choice for most of South Carolina's greatest.

Greatest supporters of slavery, at least. Southerners are more prone to react with clubs since using words, well, ouch.

Torn between paying down the mortgage or an S&P 500 index fund.

That's how this player rolls.
17  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: How can anyone say the GOP isn't favored to win the Senate? on: August 28, 2014, 09:43:14 pm
Simple. The odds of the GOP taking 2 out of 3 of LA, NC, and AK is roughly 50/50, 60/40 tops. Despite a flawed dem candidate in IA and a decent GOP candidate in CO, it'll be an uphill battle to win either state. The comparison to LA and AR is misleading as those states have incumbent Democrats. Our candidate in IA is Jodi Ernst (erg), not Chuck Grassley.

And mind you this analysis doesn't even include the unlikely, but still not unrealistic combined possibility of either Pryor hanging on or even an upset in KY.

This is Hutchinson that lost to Mike Beebe in 2006 as well.

Except all the witnesses say otherwise.

Not true at all. Besides you have to take some account for racial investment.

We all say that everytime you post. Now STFU, Naso.

Did anyone else notice the Democratic ration of negative advertising far outstrips the GOP?

Why so much certainty for Comstock in a district that's only +2 R?
22  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Gubernatorial/Statewide Elections / Re: Teachout Piles on Endorsements on: August 26, 2014, 05:58:15 pm
Any realistic chance Teachout could carry a single county (and if so which one)?

I had Obama 303-235, with my only miss being Florida, which I thought would go for Romney by <1% and instead went Obama by <1%.
24  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Would you rather live in London or Stockholm? on: August 24, 2014, 06:11:39 pm
London of course. Smiley

Shocked

4 realz SWEDISH Cheese? Huh

He's not from Sweden, he's from Scania.

HE.LL YEAH! Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy




Anyway, to clarify, I already live in the greatest city in Sweden, so if I were to move it certainly wouldn't be to the backside of the country, but to some new exciting place like London. Smiley

Ah, so you come from families of conquered Danes. Tongue

How from Scania's perspective is Stockholm the "backside of the country"? Again, I don't know Stockholm, but my assumption is it's the NYC of Sweden culturally, artistically, business-wise, etc.
25  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Gubernatorial/Statewide Elections / Re: BREAKING: Zephyr Teachout Endorsed by Massive Labor Group on: August 24, 2014, 05:41:02 pm
Hearing rumblings that NYT may endorse her.

That would be an incredible boost to her campaign, and a shocking one.

Genuine question- when was the last time a newspaper endorsement dramatically changed the course of an election?

Well, not dramatically, but it's possible that the NY Times endorsement made the difference when Ned Lamont primaried Joe Lieberman.

Statewide, you are right, it won't affect the race. But there are certain communities that are known as the NYT Editorial areas, where the NYT nod almost always helps Council candidates etc clinch the nominations. The Upper West Side (especially), Upper East Side, Park Slope, Downtown Brooklyn, etc, have huge turnout #s even in uncompetitive, and the NYT endorsement could earn Teachout thousands of votes in these high turnout communities. You have to keep in mind that though Cuomo has a huge war-chest, his support among prime Democrats is tepid, and many don't even realize there is a primary.

The NYT endorsement could have particular effect in this race, even beyond the normal bump in prestige, name recognition, legitimacy, and aid in recruiting volunteers and donors. A lot of Democrats upset with Cuomo may have some very serious (and frankly legitimate) concerns about casting a protest vote for someone named "Zephyr Rain Teachout", perceiving them to be another "Rent's Too Damn High" kook. The NYT blessing would do much to give her much-needed credibility.
