Hillary isn't perfect on foreign policy, but even on that issue (along with all others), she's better than the Republican president we're sure to have come 2017 if she isn't our next nominee.

I'd have voted for the one who didn't kill his mistress.

Being the driver in an accidental car wreck that kills someone is not the same thing as killing that person...

Yes, but season 9 was pretty dumb. They should have just made it the first year of Ted and Tracy dating, and then axed the bit about Tracy dying and Ted going back to Robin (and axed the part about Barney and Robin getting divorced).

No. They don't. And if they do, it will be considered pandering. Most minority choice are not bright anyways

I would just vote for whoever had the best shot in the general.

How are guest able to post?

When you upload an election result, it starts a thread automatically, unless you uncheck the box (which I always do).

It's a way to signal your rich (or at least upper-middle class) upbringing without having to say so. Poors can't afford (and generally don't prioritize) braces for the kids.

Okay now they're impeaching the president because he took a xanax and didn't publicly disclose his marriage counseling??? This f[inks]ing show...

That sounds about how the Republicans would react if Obama did this in real life, so good piece of realism from the writers.

At least she's going down swinging at her opponent, unlike that idiot in WV who's going down swinging at Obama.

86  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Huckabee: Obama deserves impeachment on: August 09, 2014, 11:43:44 am
If they honestly believe Obama deserves to be impeached and aren't just trying to keep the fringe right happy, then they should try to do it, regardless of whether they have the votes.

Again, if they aren't just grandstanding around and honestly believe these are real, impeachable offenses, then they should do it. If they are really being sincere, it is their patriotic duty to try to have him removed.
87  General Politics / Political Debate / Re: Could Romney have gotten a full ACA Repeal through a democratic senate majority? on: August 09, 2014, 11:22:39 am
that is a direct copy of Heritagecare from way back in 1994?

No it's not. It's not even that close.

It is pretty close to the Massachusetts system passed by the Democratic legislature and signed by into law by Mitt Romney, though.
88  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Condoleezza Rice vs. Hillary Clinton on: August 09, 2014, 09:21:11 am
Hillary, who would probably break 500 electoral votes if this were the real 2016 matchup.

Is there polling data on what % of Republicans believe that non-Christians automatically go to Hell?

91  General Politics / Political Debate / Re: Could Romney have gotten a full ACA Repeal through a democratic senate majority? on: August 08, 2014, 06:48:00 pm
It would have taken 12 Democratic traitors, not 3, to get it through the Senate, but Romney could have weakened it through executive orders.

Of course, I highly doubt Romney is truly opposed to the ACA (even today he's very proud of Romneycare), so I bet he would make some minor tweaks, spin it as a repeal, and move on.

Man, the color scheme on that last map is awful.

At first glance, I assumed it was something to do with politics, since Buffet is liberal, and I believe Gates at least leans that way. And I figure most of the people on the map are probably Republicans.
96  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Mississippi 2014 discussion thread on: August 06, 2014, 08:08:21 pm
Here's hoping he runs as a write-in.

He can't. I mean, I guess he could tell his supporters to write him in, but he still wouldn't win, even if he got the most votes.


Any chance McDaniel hangs it up?

I think he's come too far to give up now.
97  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Mississippi 2014 discussion thread on: August 06, 2014, 07:39:36 pm
The MS Republican Executive Committee will not even hear McDaniel's challenge.

This is the statement from the chairman of the MS Republican Party.
Quote from: Joe Nosef
Our 52-member volunteer Republican State Executive Committee has been asked to spend just five hours listening to legal arguments and then overturn a United States Senate primary in which over 360,000 Mississippians cast votes.
It is neither prudent nor possible in a single day for any political committee to process and review the significant amount of complex evidence necessary to make such a decision, and attempting to do so would be prejudicial to both candidates.
Under these circumstances, the only way to ensure that the integrity of the Mississippi Republican Party and our election process remains intact is to have a proper, public review of this matter through the judicial system in a court of law. Both candidates have said they look forward to such a review, and now is the time.


Onto the courts!
98  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: FiveThirtyEight Update: GOP still slight favorite to win Senate on: August 06, 2014, 07:17:19 am
Again people, Silver didn't get any states "wrong" in 2012. There are supposed to be occasional upsets, unless he gives a candidate exactly 100.00% chance of winning. The fact that Heitkamp is the only candidate with a single-digit probability on election day to win actually makes his model look better than if no one ever had.
99  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: The 2014 election season starts (August 5: KS, MI, MO, WA) on: August 05, 2014, 09:27:14 pm
Does Roberts have to get above 50% to avoid a runoff, or is a plurality all he needs?
100  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Should Israel exist? on: August 05, 2014, 09:23:17 pm
Obviously it should continue to exist since it already does, but you can at least argue that it would have been better to create a Jewish nation out of Germany in the late 1940s rather than in Palestine.

Of course that wouldn't change the fact that Jews were already emigrating to Palestine either way back then.
