The most popular college football team by county and ZIP Code.

This is the one map I've wanted to see for years. I don't think there will ever be a more fascination map ever posted on this thread:

I like them, although I wasn't wild about the most recent album. BHAR is great.

Is it a free speech issue that you can't say f*** on tv? I don't think so, so this isn't either?

Kansas is still Kansas

I'm sure Senators Coakley, Giannoulias, Berg, and Rehberg agree with your sentiment.

If Braley didn't lay some traps for her, then he lost by blowing an opportunity. There's SOOOOO much low-hanging fruit with that nutjob...

Nate was being really petty about this again on Twitter yesterday. It was really disappointing.

Doesn't everyone in Kansas who cares know that he's the de facto Democratic candidate anyway?

I don't see how him doing something that everyone expects him to do in January 2015 is going to have much play in November 2020.

Having said that, I would be on him losing reelection in 2020 regardless, simply due to "state fundamentals" and all that.

A so far, as it appears he is going to comfortably win a race Democrats really wanted and thought they could win.
85  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: What if... Democrats retake the House & get to 60+ in the Senate this November? on: September 28, 2014, 06:12:56 pm
Senator Tennant would probably switch to the Republicans to deny Democrats 60. She already disagrees with Obama on every issue.
86  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Best Campaigns (thus far) on: September 28, 2014, 12:48:38 pm
Gardner, Hagan, and McConnell all come to mind.

I guess Scott Brown too if he really does make it close.

Braley better lay a bunch of gotcha traps in the debates -- Ernst will easily fall for them. He needs to get her spouting off about Agenda 21 or whatever those types salivate over.

Hopefully at least some of the moderators can help him in this.

Looks like Mississippi isn't going to be America's #1 punchline state much longer. Hooray!

I for now, but I can't imagine it ending up as anything other than D if he wins, F if he loses.

Write-in: none

I'm not saying that it's totally unrealistic that some of the state will go to the devil's column, but the fact that Michigan and New Hampshire are listed is truly ridiculous.

I only put them there because if I didn't, someone would whine about it

It didn't occur to you that people would whine about not having a NOTA option?

Well what I was actually referring to was the "string attached" that Orman would have to caucus with the GOP. If he were a true believer like Chris McDaniel, he would want the Republican nominee to lose and want the Republicans not to control the senate, as a way of sticking it to the Establishment.

Even though it looks bad, don't try anything like quitting before your boss gets the chance to fire you Tuesday. Do whatever you can to keep your job during the meeting.

Don't give up until he actually says "You're fired."

Good. I hope they do they same for Portman and Kirk in the future. Maybe they could contrive some more purity tests in the future too.

97  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Clinton's running mate? on: September 26, 2014, 04:16:31 pm
It's constitutionally impossible for Clinton to select Gillibrand, or any other New Yorker for that matter.

It's allowed, but NY's electors couldn't vote for them.

If Hillary won enough votes, the NY electors could leave the VP slot blank, or if she won a relatively close election, half could vote Hillary/blank, and the other half blank/Gillibrand.

If Hillary won 271-267 or something like that, I'd assume the electors would all vote Hillary and let the Senate choose the VP.

Not that I would have picked it, but no NOTA option? That's at least a plausible outcome...

If you're delusional. Barring a massive swing of Democratmentum and every nominee pulling a Mourdock, they WILL get at least one of these.

Agreed, but you should have included it as an option -- By 538 odds, Republicans have right under a 0.5% of clean sweeping all 7 of these races. Your poll allows us to pick all 7 races as Republican wins. On the other hand, Democrats have a 0.3% chance of sweeping all 7, but your poll does not allow us to predict that outcome.

The two probabilities are virtually indistinguishable. Doesn't it make sense to make both options available as a poll choice if 1 of them is?

I made it back home.  I called my boss at 1115 when I was about to leave Shawnee, the town where my doctor's office is located, and told him I would be in around 1300.  He said to go on home as there is no need to just work 3 hours.  So, I won't get my paycheck until Monday.  I'll be honest, though, he did not sound happy.  My attendance is still pretty good other than missing 2 1/2 days in the past week, not including today, but I think my performance, while it has improved, may not be improving at the speed he wants or needs.  He said we'll talk about it Monday.  I still have a job for right now, but I wouldn't be a bit surprised if that changes Monday.  So, I'm about to turn around and go back to my parents' for the weekend to discuss next steps in the event that I am out of a job come Monday.  Again, I do not think it's my attendance, rather I think it has a lot to do with my performance not improving fast enough.  So, have fun with this one, folks...

Don't do anything rash! If your parents tell you to quit, ignore their advice. Go into work Monday and do the best that you can. Make damn sure that he's the one who ends your employment there, if that happens, and not you.

I'm tasting the tears of the PPPites right now.

What? PPP got a pretty good rating from 538, but not nearly enough for any tears of joy.

If anything, it's probably the PPP-haters crying sad tears, but 538 demonstrated how their two pet arguments ("PPP is a bad pollster," "PPP has a Democratic bias") are wrong.
