I see B&A has reverted to the mean after that weird poll a few months back.

Not that it matters since Windjammer's lead is insurmountable by almost any standard, but "Kitten Whiskers" or whatever accidentally attempted to vote in the Midwest race and has since deleted that post and reposted a ballot. Infuriatingly it didn't occur to me to screencap so I don't know if it was over the time limit.

I think Windjammer more or less has it locked up at the moment. Amazing. Congratulations to him.

The Federalists are achieving the remarkable spectacle of winning the Presidency in a landslide while losing one of their Senate seats due to sheer ineptitude. If I was a Fed I'd be appalled - apparently not a single soul in the party noticed the (hardly subtle) strategic recruitment campaign windjammer ran in the last couple of weeks. They're literally on course to become a bigger joke than the old PU. It seems apparent that the party's victories of the past months have been more due to Labor's disastrous tenure in power than any kind of Federalist organisation. Even if they end up scraping out a win by one vote here it'll be humiliating.

Windjammer winning would also raise pretty awkward questions about the structural problems that happen when the 'zombie'/voter population pool sudden becomes radically different to an active/player population pool but that's for another day.

A liberal former President of Atlasia was guest lecturing a class on Charles Darwin, known evolution advocate.

“Before the class begins, you must get on your knees and worship Darwin and accept that he was the most highly-evolved being the world has ever known, even greater than Jesus Christ!”

At this moment, a brave, bipartisan but Moderate Labor Governor who had served 1500 terms in the Althing and fully supported all decisions made by the Labor politburo stood up and held up a rock.

"How old is this rock"?

The arrogant former President smirked quite heathenly and smugly replied “4.6 billion years, you stupid Christian”

“Wrong. It’s been 5,000 years since God created it. If it was 4.6 billion years old and evolution, as you say, is real… then it should be Most Serene Squirrel by now.”

The former president was visibly shaken, and dropped his chalk and copy of The Economist. He stormed out of the room crying those liberal satanist tears.

 The students applauded and all registered for Labor in the Midwast that day and accepted LeBron FitzGerald as their lord and savior. An squirrel named “#KeepingTheMidwestStrong ” flew into the room and perched atop the Atlasian Flag and shed a tear on the chalk. The lyrics to I Came To Play were read several times, and Windjammer himself showed up and enacted a $1.9 trillion dollar tolerance education program throughout the land.

The former president lost his Senate seat and degregistered the next day. He died of marijuana and was tossed into the lake of fire for all eternity.

How can a "Rockefeller Republican" exist in 2014? I ask only with the greatest respect, of course.

Supreme Court of Atlasia
Nyman, DC

People of the Republic of Atlasia v. Snowstalker

Sentencing.


(The presiding judge, Justice Oakvale, sentenced the defendant after he plead no contest to the charges against him.)



The Court has heard both the defendant and the prosecution regarding sentencing in this matter, and thanks both sides for their willingness to actively participate in this case. I also wish to extend my personal thanks to the members of the jury who were unfailingly courteous and understanding throughout the process, although given how the events of this case transpired their input unfortunately proved unnecessary.

Treason is perhaps the most serious crime an Atlasian citizen can commit. It represents not just an attack on a government, or even a nation, but the fundamental bedrock principles of democracy. It is for this reason that it is the only crime against the state for which legislation allows the Court to impose severe sentences on the perpetrators. The defendant, Snowstalker, a previously respected Attorney General, Senator and Governor of some fame throughout the nation, and someone who the Court respected for his apparent facility on legal matters, degraded and disgraced his office and attempted to pervert and subvert the constitutional framework through overthrowing a democratic government, directly leading to the so-called Crisis of recent weeks, civil unrest, mass casualties, and economic turmoil the likes of which have not been seen in many years. The defendant publicly rejected the legal government of Atlasia and the rule of law, and declared himself as the new leader of the nation in what was transparently and explicitly an attempted coup d’etat. The defendant, who has not contested the charges against him, promptly fled the country in an effort to escape justice, although the Court notes that he has, at least, addressed this Court in an effort to mitigate the punishment for his crimes.

Snowstalker, having plead no contest to the three charges of treason against him, is hereby sentenced  to a ban of three years on voting in elections in Atlasia, one year for each count against him, and to a ban on holding office in Atlasia for the remainder of his natural life.

*bangs gavel*

I'd like to thank the jurors who voted, although given the defendant's nolo contendere their decision is as mentioned not binding on the court's judgement.

Does either party wish to be heard in regard to sentencing?

Yes, this.
Who is solarstorm2012 a sock of?

Not sure, but it must be someone. The apparent "claiming to be German while posting from the US" thing is bizarre.

If you look at the numbers in the Midwest, it's actually near-mathematically impossible for Cris to beat TNF, despite being a strong candidate. This is, hilariously, partly due to long-time TNF nemesis Simfan recruiting a bunch of right-wingers from the region and turning it from at least nominally competitive to in a sense the safest Labor seat.

The Midwest is also, staggeringly, competitive, where there's an outside chance that incumbent fascist nutjob Senator Cassius might lose to Windjammer through a combination of Windjammer retaining wide popularity and respect despite his association with the DemPGH legacy and one of the world's least subtle recruitment campaigns. Still, it's hard to read the (possible) competitiveness as anything other than an indictment of the traditional conservative opposition. I expect Cassius to hold on but I wouldn't be shocked if it went otherwise.

The other races will go as expected.

Not sure if we can touch much on the other big story of the last week (every news article I've seen has the comments closed to avoid legal problems) so I'll just leave this here.

Kind of the opposite take I would have expected from someone rambling about the gene pool and IQ scores.

If you can't trust Matt to be active in a regional legislature, how can you trust Matt to help in actively leading this whole nation as a Senator? That's something Northeast voters should keep in mind when they go to the polls this week.

At least I'm not an obese black guy who can't get laid.


Hmmm, I miss the reference, Fitz isn't a fat black guy!

No, that was LeBron's ill burn on poor Simfan.

The Court notes that the defendant has plead no contest. Strictly speaking a jury verdict isn't strictly necessary but since we went through the trouble of contacting them regardless I'll ask for their (what is now) non-binding decision.

Alright, defendant must present his case.
21  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: RIP MattVT, FF on: October 19, 2014, 06:40:31 pm
I mean the difference is I'm not in a position where I'm painfully obviously trying to avoid being primaried in a gubernatorial election by my own party but if you guys are seriously pinning your flag to this particular mast now more power to you.

Alright, I've got to say something. It's not like this isn't a perfectly valid criticism in isolation, but you realise literally no one is fooled or convinced by your new "I'm a loyal Laborite" act, right? Trying to avoid a primary is completely understandable but you're going about it with the subtlety of a jackhammer. It stands out a bit when you pledge to "support any candidate who runs against the awful TNF" or whatever and then turn around and say you won't make an endorsement once you hear that the party wants to get rid of you. I can't imagine Adam Griffin et al have magically forgotten your past votes. Just a tip.

Surely you realise that you could not vote for McConnell! It is true that Grimes is faux Grimes, but is it globally certain that The Turtle is worse. And really, I mean this.
